Listen to audio books/.mp3 from your Kindle e-reader!

Today I have tested audio books from my Kindle Keyboard, and it was a great experience!

For those of you enjoying listening to books, here is the recipe of how to use your Kindle e-reader as an .mp3 audio book player.

PS! The new Kindle Mini can not handle audio books. Just as you know... And, my recipe below contains link to free audiobooks you can test on :-)

You need
  • Your Kindle and a set of headphones which are compatible with the jack just beside the charger.

How to put the .mp3 audio book onto your Kindle

  • Click HERE to download a free audio book in .mp3 format
  • Click on line 1 "Aesop's Fables"
  • Click again on "Aesop's Fables Volume 1"
  • Scroll down till you find the headline ".mp3 and ogg files"
  • Click the link "mp3@64kbps - 5.3MB"
  • Choose "Save File"
  • Attach your Kindle to your PC
  • Open your FileManager and go to: c:\users\"your_user"\downloads
  • Copy the file "fables_01_00_aesop_64kb" to your Kindle's Kindle\music directory

Play your .mp3 audio book

  • Unplug your Kindle from the PC
  • Plug in your headset
  • Go to your HOME page on the Kindle
  • Click the MENU button
  • Go down to "Experimental" and choose this
  • Under "Play MP3" you get explained how to play and pause your file
  • Choose "play music"
  • If you don't hear anything, remember you have a volume control button to the left of your headset jack
  • Click + ;-)
  • To pause your book, just choose "pause music" from the "Experimental" tab
You can of course also use the same recipe to play music files (.mp3) from your Kindle.

Audio books from Amazon

Amazon has their own website where you can buy and subscribe to audio books. Check out www.audible.com.

Good luck :-)

  1. One of the more amusing parts involving the other school is when the student council heads http://www.ventnorcity.org/tmp.html there for their festival to partake in it in various roles. They had little exposure to the boys there overall and seeing such an outlandish and festive place, not like their restrained festivals, is very striking and off-putting to many of the girls louis vuitton outlet. Sachiko in particular struggles with so many males near her and you can see how strained she is when Yumi heads off and ends up disappearing through an awkward kidnapping sequence. Festivals swiss replica watches also make up events at the Lillian school as well as the sports festival has the girls trying to compete in teams and there are some louis vuitton outlet amusing rivalries that get brought into it, but with the kind of restraint that been present in the series from the start. It a nice change of pace in that everyone is more active and outgoing and there cosplay too! but it also a nice change in that they wearing different chanel replica outfits for awhile and they actively competitive during it. Everyone tends to get along so well, even when at odds, that this kind of dynamic is a welcome change.
