Free audiobook: Sherlock Holmes


New MP3 player + current movie = perfect listening choice! If you are looking for a great freebie, there’s only two days left for the downloads offered on AudioFile magazine’s Listeners’ Guide to Sherlock Holmes web page. I highlighted Naxos AudioBooks marvelous recordings of  The Complete Sherlock Holmes in this Inside the Audiobook Studio interview with Naxos publisher & co-founder Nicolas Soames – an amazing 10 year labor of love encompassing 60 CDs! Click here to get The Silver Blaze, The Adventure of the Stock-Broker’s Clerk, and The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans, three Holmes stories courtesy of AudioFile & Naxos. You’ll also find videos of narrator David Timson’s recording sessions, as well as interviews with three different Holmes narrators and recommendations of other great audiobook Holmes recordings on the Listeners’ Guide site. A perfect holiday treat!
