I’ve listened to pod-casts for some time, but not audio-books.
An audio book, on the other hand, is the reading of a book! They are usually quite professional productions, (as are many pod-casts), and unlike many pod-casts, they are NOT usually free.
I recently took out a trial at audible.com, and got a PDF copy of a very interesting magazine called Audio File. I printed it out and found it a most enlightening read, as it explained what goes into an audio-book production.
Once I get to actually listen to it (and it’s over 30 hours long), I’ll write a short review.
