For years I have wanted to read the NY Times, but never had the time. Now, it gets read to me every morning on my way to work. It's wonderfully interesting, informative, and well done. I really feel like I have an idea of what's going on in the world now. This service alone makes Audible worthwhile.
I download the digest 1st thing in the morning (it has never been late), listen to the news of the day and I feel quite informed. The articles are very well abridged. If I find myself interested in a piece, I simply go to NYT's website and pull up the article. The reader is excellent.
