I have a freeview card (Nebula), which can be used to record freeview
stations e.g oneword, BBC3 , and save in mp3 format.  The quality is more
than good enough for Audiobooks.

Failing that, why not invest in a Topfield, and get a TAP to grab everything
from that channel as well ? This would be easier, but with the added pain of
having to copy to a PC afterwards, and maybe convert.
