Freebie Friday: And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman

Want to win a copy for your public library? Or would you rather download The Rainbow by D.H. Laurence? Why not both! Today’s titles offer some hot stuff for listeners. And When She Was Good is mega-award-winner Lippman’s tale of a suburban prostitute/madame/single-mom embroiled in a murder committed by her lover, narrated Linda Emond. Check out the title’s starred review in Booklist here or Salon’s feature on the audiobook here. Or sample D.H. Laurence’s sweeping three-generation epic exploring the sexual and psychological mores in British society, deemed obscene when published in 1915 – an early of Downton Abbey meets Fifty Shades of Grey.

Today I’m kicking off a new feature here on Audiobooker. Besides the regular bounty of free downloads for audiobook fans, I’ll be featuring new releases from audio publishers with a special treat for public or school librarians – the chance to win a free physical CD edition of a great new title for your circulating collection.  I’ll select this week’s library winner using a random number generator that will pick from those who leave a comment on my blog with the name of your public or school library. So if you’re reading this via Twitter, Facebook, or your RSS feed, please pop over to the blog to leave your comment to enter. Harper Audio has generously donated TWO copies of And When She Was Good – if you’d like to win one for your library, click the comment link below, post your library’s name & keep your fingers crossed. And stay tuned to Audiobooker for more great audiobooks – some with great bonus items – to be given away to librarians, as well as download freebies for everyone.

Everyone can win with this freebie from Tantor Audio – get both the audiobook and the companion eBook of Laurence’s The Rainbow, narrated by Wanda McCaddon. Here’s the download link.

And be sure you’ve checked out my post about the FREE $500 download library of audiobooks plus eBooks from Amazon & Audible. Happy listening!
