    It’s a wonderful news to know Apple Company shares a free audiobook. Most of the Books are quite well known, users of ios will be glad to download it to there app store. I already grab my copy and started listening to Pride and Prejudice, narrated by Kate Beckinsale and the story was amazing! I’m excited to try out the other free audiobooks.

    I didn’t like it. I never heard a word of any of the 6 Jane Austin books advertised for free. I have messed with this web site for half an hour and nothing – going in circles. Surprisingly, it didn’t offer to let me pay, it was a small preview with no link to the goods.

  • Happy Scot says:

    Brilliant – would never have realised these were free on ITunes.
    Just downloaded 4 of the 6. Thanks!

    (not sure what guy above is talking about, no hassle whatsoever…)
