Freebie Friday

Snowbound? Download over 100 hours of FREE epic-length audiobooks! Crime & Punishment, the Bible, and a James Rollins thriller.


This month’s free download from Christian Audio is the ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible – a 75 hour blockbuster narrated by David Cochran Heath, an accurate yet accessible translation. I highly recommend downloading the MP4 version, so that you can easily skip between chapters. Here’s the download link:



Z4575.inddDownpour Audio’s monthly freebie is Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky, translated by Constance Garnett, and read by Anthony Heald – a 20.5 hour classic and 2009 Audie Award Finalist. Grab this download by entering the promocode “crimefree” when you checkout here.

There you go – 109 hours of audiobook goodness. So whether you’re battling the blizzard with snow shovel in hand, or curled up on the couch with a hot chocolate in hand, you’ll have plenty of great audios in your ear to survive the storm. Happy listening!

    How long are these freebies available? Just today (Friday), or for longer?

    Hello Elise! The top two are available for the whole month of January. But many many of my Freebie Friday titles are short-term promotions. My rule of thumb is – when it’s free, grab it NOW 😉
