    Ok guys

    Going on holiday soon. I'd really like to take some audiobooks with me and a bit of music. I was wondering if the iShuffle would do the trick. Can anyone advise:

    a) If I store four or five audiobooks on the iShuffle will it be "easy" to navigate within each book, and between books.

    b) If I add some music as well, can I shuffle the music and not the books!?

    I'd really appreciate any help you can offer!

    Cheers

    Del

    well you can set it to play random or in order of how you uploaded, so assuming you know the order that you uploaded your audio books and music its as organized as your memory is. now if you set it to be random, well its that, random.

    OMG UR GOING TO BORA WAHOOOOOO

    u might wanna keep ur ishuffle in a plastic case cuz the sand is so fine it might damage it.

    where in bora are u staying
    if you get the chance eat in waling waling, theres also an indian restaurant there thats pretty good. dont forget to go for the choco-peanutbutter-banana-rum shakes are jonis too :D

    and make sure you hit up cocomangas and do the 15 shooters and still standing challenge :D thats actually my avatar

    and cebu omg i love cebu so much good food, the best lechon (roast pig) in the world, hehe

    and manila, if your staying in the makati area, make sure to hit up greenbelt for the night life, or vbar if thats your thing

    with regard to ishuffle again, i can see problems if you switch from your audio book to a song, then try to switch back to the audio book, you might lose your place, and without a screen getting it back might be a hassle

    With a wonderful long trip like that, will the number of songs and books be enough on the iPod Shuffle? For myself I would be wanting an iPod Mini.

    no, it would probablly be a pain in the ass reading audiobooks on the shuffle.
