Free Audiobook: For REAL!

So, I just downloaded a free audiobook from audible.com without having to give any credit card info! There are a bunch of books to choose from, just click here for a FREE Audiobook of Your Choice!


I chose to download The Road by Cormac McCarthy because I am thinking about teaching it at some point. It's a great novel--I love a good dystopia and you can't get more a more dystopian world than the portrayed in The Road.

Thanks to Jacki at the Lovely Little Shelf blog for the link and information. Let me know which free book you choose!

  7. I love audible. Haven't read the Road, but it reminds me of Alas Babylon by Pat Frank. Frank wrote his book in the 1950' when the threat of nuclear destruction was very real. I've always wanted to teach this but it is a little too mature for 8th graders. If you've never read it I highly recommend it.

  8. @ aLmYbNeNr: Awesome! Glad that you got in and downloaded Gatsby. I love that book! I bet it's awesome on audio. Enjoy!

    @ Jan: Thanks for the book suggestion. I've never heard of it, but love reading dystopian lit. Maybe it's appropriate for my high school students??

  9. I love it too! I can't wait to listen to it! Now I'm wondering - are audiobooks cheaper to buy on Audible or iTunes or about the same? Hmmm...

  10. @ aLmYbNeNr: I think it depends on the title. I'm not a subscriber of audible, but I'm considering it after seeing that the first 3 months are $7.49. That's three audiobooks for less than $25. Pretty good, I think. I do love itunes, though.
