Need Audio Book Suggestions!

I'm almost done with my current audio book and for some reason I'm really at a loss on what to listen to yet. I LOVE to read and I'll read nearly anything. What I'm looking for is a good book that will work with listening on the run (sort of speak).

I book I'm finishing up right now is "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde. I made it a resolution of sorts to read one "classic" every 6 months and why not combine this with running?

I understand now that 19th century books really don't work well with running. It's just way too much commentary.

So what have you?

Today is our 10 miler, then going to the hippy Solfest with a friend.

Should be fun.

I was never able to even run with music much. Sorry that is one thing I can't offer any advice on. I love Wilde though.

You know my sister loves books on tapes but it really isn't my thing. She did mention how she loved listening to the Lord of The Rings books on tapes though.

I do not see myself reading as I run. Music is better motivation for me.

Hmm..books. Anything Nicholas Sparks. Or I am reading this book called Reading in Lolita Tehran, it's pretty good and based on true experiences.

GL GL GL on the ten miler! I tell you, 3 miles yesterday and I was done, so I give you big props, go get 'em.

Books on tape, hmmm, I listened to The Pilot's Wife a few years back on the commute to/from work and it was riveting. It ticked me off, too, but it was riveting.

Classics you say? I am the classic reading queen. Here are a few suggestions of things that I really liked, that don't move too slow... To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride & Prejudice, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Rebecca, Pudd'nhead Wilson, A Separate Peace. As for non-classics have you ever read any of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich? They are extremely funny and fast moving, and the ones that I have listened to have an awesome person reading them. She really brings the characters to life.
