If you like audiobooks, then I would like to point you in the direction of Audible.Com. They have a ginormous library of books, ready for immediate download.


The cost is relatively inexpensive. You have the option to purchase books on an individual basis, or purchase different memberships. The easiest membership is Gold, which has an introductory rate of $7.49 per month for the first 3 months. This instantly gives you 1 credit per month. On credit is worth one entire book. The savings on this is amazing! Many books retail up to $20 and beyond. After the 3 month trial membership, the cost is $14.95 per month, which is still less than the cost of many titles.

They have over 75,000 titles, including many for children. There are classics, fairytales, new titles, biographies, fiction and non-fiction, and of course, best sellers.

Books may be downloaded to your computer via iTunes for use on iPods, or they may be copied to CD. You may also download titles directly to your iPhone. We also listen to them directly from the computer.
Since Louis L’amour is my favorite author, I’ve had a mini-holiday just downloading some of his westerns, but you may find something completely different. I plan on downloading some fun classics for my children in the near future.

I’ve been listening to audiobooks for about 15 years, and my children have grown up on them. Every room in our house has one going at bedtime. So this is a goldmine for us. How about you?

If you’re interested, do me a favor and click on the link above. You’ll get a great book, and I’ll get a little credit for my next download!
