And more here...

ETA: Several of the well-known blogs have these free Aubible books posted on their sites today. It's difficult to discern who to credit since not all of them post their times and/or time zones. I may be wrong but my sense is that they were first posted at the link above.

Thank you!

Beth - Can you tell me how you got "It" for $4.95? When I click on it on Audible, it's $47. What I am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Very cool! I bought A Tale of Two Cities last week, and was still able to pick up the free audio book today.

"Add Narration to a Great Read for $3.95 or less"

Many of these books were previously discounted (some steeply, a few were free). Some are discounted now. Coupled with the low Audible prices, they are going to be hard to resist!

How did you get to the 'free' audio edition from your prior purchase?

ETA: Never mind! I figured it out. The book page says since I already purchased it I am able to get the professional narration for the reduced price of $0.00, if I click on the link to the professional narration and then use the buy at audible button, it appeared in my Audible shopping cart listed at $0.00. I was too chicken at first thinking it was a one-click!!!!!

On the web page of the book you previously purchased, look in the box that lists all of the formats available. At the bottom see if there is a link to the Audible page with the book. (That is how it is working for me with the books that Emily posted the link for.

Go to link first provided by Emily Bronte above:

From the post there on Mobile Read you will find links directly to Audible, where you can get the audiobooks for free without having to buy the ebooks.

Susan Lynn Umpleby, Thanks. That's definitely the easiest way to access the free Audible books. Providing the "copy and paste" links was probably unnecessary but I wasn't sure if the mobileread poster would remove his/her links.

Thank you for posting this info. I got a number of new audiobooks. Nothing like free to get me to try out a new author or genre.

You're welcome, Nospin. Good to hear from you.

It's been fun purchasing the 27 "FREE Whispersync for Voice titles."

Yes I messed up somehow and used my credits but was able to get them back by calling Audible.
Have to be careful to uncheck the credit box in the Audible cart.
