TUNE IN Let's be honest: after a long day at work, flopping on the couch with your boyfriend Tivo is often much more appealing than settling in for an evening with that book you've been meaning to read. But thanks to Jiggerbug, a company that offers rentable audiobook downloads, you can keep up with Oprah's Book Club anywhere from the gym to the drive home from work. Now when the book du jour is brought up at a cocktail party, you can offer some input other than "I've seen the movie." (JiggerBug.com; price varies per plan)
