I think the problem may be that you downloaded the book to your Kindle, which doesn't allow 'lending' so you might nor be able to download it to another device. If you remove it you should be able to download the book again to any device, in this case your computer. At least I think that is the problem, I have an audible account and you can re-download your books over and over. In this case you chose a huge book, and that is why it took so much space, audio would use more space than a printed book. Usually audible breaks books up into parts, so you can download the book in pieces - did this download the entire book to the Kindle? It still seems like it shouldn't have taken up all the Kindle memory - you have a K2 correct? You may want to call Amazon Customer Support for help with this, they are usually extremely nice and helpful.
I agree with the ladies here, an MP3 player is the way to go, they are small and should have enough memory for more than one book. I have only used iPods, so they are they only ones I am familiar with. An Ipod shuffle is the least expensive at around $100, but it has no screen, the Nano does but is about 150. There are many less expensive players, but I know nothing about them, so I wouldn't venture to recommend one.
If you do place the book on your computer Windows Media Player you can burn CD's right from the program, but a book the size of Fall of Giants (or Pillars of the Earth, I think you blended the titles) would require about 30 CDs and a lot f time to burn them. If you get an MP3 player the download manager with audible takes carre of it for you. Just be sure that you check at audible for the list of compatible devices to make sure you buy something that will work with Audible.
