The fancy developers at Amazon have devised a way to sync audio books with digital reading.

Meaning, you can be busy reading on your Kindle (or FREE Kindle Reading App), and suddenly be suddenly called away on a very important hour-long drive. But you don’t want to give up reading! No way, José!

Welp, friends. Just plug in your headphone jack and listen to your highly-engrossing book from where you left off.
