I'm sure there are. I was downloading some books from LibriVox last night for my hubby and I to listen to on the plane to Europe, and I saw a book on relativity by Einstein and Origin of the Species by Darwin. If they've got it in public domain books, I'm sure they've got it in more contemporary titles too.

If you are looking for really hard science, you should check out MIT's OpenCourseWare. MIT provides a ton of their course information online for free, and several of the instructors record their lectures. I think it would be great fun to pick an interesting class and take it virtually while I knit away.

That is a great idea!! I am a huge reader and hate having to decide if I want to knit or read. This way I can do both! It never even occured to me... Thanks for the idea!

I have been listening to some 1940s radio shows while knitting. Those are really fun.

My LYS was doing the same thing the last time I went in there, and it confused me so much. I was talking to the owner and not paying any attention until they started talking about Australia getting involved in the war. It took me a bit to get my bearings straight and realize they weren't talking about Iraq.
