It's http://www.audible.com but if you just go through that link JPOD probobly won't get their full sponsorship dollars. I don't know the link to JPOD's sponsor section.

Hi, yuzzo,

The place he's talking about is called http://www.audible.com He actually says "audiblepodcast.com/pod101", but when I googled it, it took me to audible.com.

It looks like you can sign up for a 14-day free trial, and you can download 1 book free. The information is on the Home Page.

I went in, clicked on "Browse Audio" up near the top of the page, then entered "Japanese" into the search box. It came up with 74 books, including some by Pimsleur, which Peter had mentioned.

Hope this helps!

Ah, so it was 'audible'! Audible, but not understandable, at least for me, hehe.
So, thanks jkid-san and windbiscuit san. I'm gonna check the link right now!

Whoa, the audible.com website is pretty cool!
It has many audiobooks avaiable, including some of japanese authors. And the best thing is that by accessing the website through this link mentioned (/pod101), you are able to download an entire audiobook of your choice!

As for me, I'm downloading 'Norwegian Wood', by Murakami Haruki.
Thank you Jpod for this! *very happy* :D :D :D
