I started with a 40gig iriver MP3 player in ?2001. Have been using SanDisk players since a few years after that. They just work without any fuss. The newer generation sport with Bluetooth are as rock solid as the original. Loading music or audiobooks onto it is as simple as plugging it into your computer and using it the same way you would a USB memory stick. I use my MP3 player for at least 10 hours every day. Much better than using my phone, it's way smaller and easier to use. Could add more about its capability, but but just check its specs for yourself. Am never without it.
