Freebie Friday

Pick one of twenty free audiobooks – something for everyone, from Winnie-the-Pooh to Stephen King. Listen on whatever digital gadget you own. Blackstone Audio created the Downpour retail site & the Downpour Audiobook Club Membership, but there are audio titles from tons of top publishers. Here’s the offer’s link: Give it a try, but be quick – the promo says December 26th is the cut off date, but I just downloaded my free copy of  Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes read by Bronson Pinchot – super quick & easy, no credit card, DRM-free, and in either MP3 or M4b (Apple) format.

Curious about this new kid on the audiobook block? Find out more from Craig Black, CEO and winner of the Audio Publishers Association’s 2012 Special Acheivement Award. Looking forward to the promised eBook and hybrid audio+synced text formats coming soon!
