Good “Reads” On Audible (with Freebie Possibilities)

paul_austerA quick note: Audible has recently launched a series called the Audible Modern Vanguard (more details here) that brings groundbreaking works and authors into unabridged audio for the first time. Here, you'll find works by Paul Auster (one of my faves), Saul Bellow, John Cheever, John Irving, Kurt Vonnegut, and William Kennedy.

There are some good "reads" here, and, unless I'm mistaken, there's a way that you can download one for free. I've created a page where you can get information on Audible's (no strings attached) 14 day trial here, which gives you a completely free download of any audio book you choose.

    While I’ll admit that this wasn’t the most exciting post, it didn’t seem like a bad idea to tell folks how they can get a free book from some of America’s more important authors. It’s kind of what we do here. In the meantime, if you have something more exciting to share, send it my way. The email address is in the header above.


  • I’ve been using audible for the last three years. I find the service to be excellent! Thank you for the link to the 14 day trial and definitely going to put to use!
