Librivox provides audio books from the public domain in MP3's or as podcasts that you can subscribe to in iTunes. I downloaded Dickens's A Christmas Carol to my iPod. Volunteers create the recordings so they may not necessarily be in a "professional" voice, but the price is right.
Also, check out the Princeton Review Vocabulary Minute, a series of short songs which teach vocabulary. Enjoy!
