Default audio books from library

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, my local library has a good selection of books on CD, and others that can be downloaded in WMA or MP3 format. Can anybody tell me how to get these on a BB? I'd prefer software that will automatically stop with an incoming call, and then re-start where I stopped.

I'm familiar with, but would prefer free books from the library.

Thank you!

Moving to the Aftermarket Software section.

This is a good section to browse for 3rd party software. Also, check out the BlackBerryAPPS Store: : Your Update on the BlackBerry World

I have just started using Mobiola xPlayer for mp3 audio books because it's the only free player I have found that will bookmark your place in a book.

I haven't found any way to play the wma, drm-protected, files from Overdrive or Netlibrary. However, both of those, at least with my library, are now offering several books in mp3 format. For the wma, drm-protected, books, I use a Creative Zen mp3 player. I sure wish I could play drm protected, wma files on my BB, but haven't found a way to do that yet.

I also use on my BB for books that I really want to hear and am unable to download from my library, but those aren't free.
