Whether to brave the elements while watching a game of baseball or just going out for a walk in the park during a particularly nifty evening, putting on a jacket is the most logical thing to do.

A jacket is a lightweight, thigh or waist-length coat that is worn by people of all ages and gender. While there are fashionable jackets, the primary reason for a wearing a jacket is its function as a protective clothing against harsh cold weather.

But, jackets carry a different meaning for baseball fans. They are not only fashion statements or a layer of clothing that assure warmth during cold season, they represent their adoration for a baseball team. When they don on this piece of protective clothing, they feel as if they are one with the team, the logo of which are mostly emblazoned on their backs or on the front panels of the jacket. Baseball fans feel a different kind of warmth, when they wear them; that has got nothing to do with the jackets’ materials. It is the warmth of pride, of showing to the world that they are avid fans of a particular team, especially one that has won over and over again to set a record.

Because of its hefty price of above $50 to above $200, there are limited Major League Baseball (MLB) jackets on sale especially on the net that features team logos or emblems. But what there are that are sold are really of the best quality and craftsmanship.

Perhaps there is nothing so relaxing like reading your favorite title with a bottle of beer to give you company. Your mind cries out for revenge as you read Shakespeare’s Othello or is mellowed out as you turn the pages of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of the Grass. But alas, the murderous rat race and the bursting everyday schedule have permanently prevented such simple luxuries. You just do not have the time to read any more. ‘Is there any other alternative to reading a book’, you ask yourself. Well, why not someone else reading it for you? All you have to do is listen. Great, isn’t it? Audio books online are in these days.

Although audio books online have come to stay for quite sometime now, few people have come to grips with it, fewer still indulge in such simple opulence. Thousands of websites beckon you for free audio book online, comprising fiction, non-fiction, classics and more. Even if you are bound to a very strict schedule, there is nothing to prevent you from listening to an audio book online and enjoying every bit of it sans the hassles of going through it page by page.

As the literary works are downloaded to your computer, you may listen to their content at the privacy of your home without any hindrance. No need to visit the local library or browse the archives to find your favorite title. No late fees levied for any delay in returning the book.

But what happens if you are always on the move. Those who are traveling sales persons or departmental heads, perpetually on the road, visiting clients and distributors. For them the answer is simple. As these online audio books can be easily downloaded to the computer, you may burn them onto a CD, take them along and listen while you are driving. No problem at all. Your car CD player will then literally read out choice fragments of Vladimir Nobokov’s Lolita as you press the accelerator down to the floor of the vehicle.

Another great advantage that audio books online offer is that they are reusable. In fact, you could listen to them as many times as you prefer, alone or in company of others, in the privacy of your home or while traveling in your car, any place any time of the day or night. No wonder more and more people are opting for audio books online. Websites are vying with each other to get the lion’s share of the profit earned from the sale of audio books online.

In some cases, nominal yearly membership fees are also charged by some websites, depending on the type of audio books you need. You may be overwhelmed by the extent of the availability of audio books online and the variety that is available. All for the benefit of the reading (or should I say, ‘read-listening’) public. The day is not very when audio books online may enter the hall of fame for escalating the world literacy.
