I am an audiophile. I really prefer listening to reading. I get so much more out of hearing something than seeing it and maybe you are like me. Maybe you are one of my seminary friends and are simply reading so much that your eyes are getting glazed over.
BibleGateway.com has a wonderful free audio bible that is NIV, you can even choose different reading voices.
