Believe me, music is amazingly helpful when you are in the car for so long, but even that can get annoying. Books on tape save me. I love reading, and this is as close to reading as I can get while still be able to operate my car safely :)
My library has just recently started adding to their e-library and I can download books directly to my iphone. The selection is pretty limited so far, so I've been listening to a lot of books I've already read, but it's an entirely different experience to hear someone else read it!
I have found that I have to listen to things that are pretty "light". Mostly books that don't require a lot of thinking or translation in my head. Otherwise, I am entirely too distracted.
Here's what I've been listening to.
Do you have any "easy listening" recommendations?
