Is there a combined audiobook reader and radio

I would like to listen to an audio book while lieing in bed. Is there such a thing as one which has a radio incorporated?

Our local library has a selection of audio books which one can download and I thought that they would be a good idea for using on the odd occasion when I can't sleep.

I have an earlier version of that Scanaclip and use it to listen to recorded R4 programs from my computer. It's quite useful while pushing a wheelbarrow round the field as a radio tends to keep cutting in and out. I don't use the earbuds but prefer a small set of Sony headphones.

Many thanks, Onionskin. I have now taken the plunge and bought an ipod - thought I ought to know what they were, in any case! Yes, you are right about listening to an audio book. I downloaded Kafka's Metamorphosis onto my laptop. Very quickly I found myself listening to it while I was doing something else, when it was fine, but I have survived only the first half.

I'll mark this thread as resolved, if I can find where the button for that has gone - or perhaps there isn't one now. Thanks all.
