For more information on the Audible program and services, please check out my review on Audible here as well as on the AudibleAir service for smartphones and connected devices.
Also, don’t forget to check out This is Audible (free bi-weekly Audible file) that discusses audio books with interviews, clips and discussions related to audio books and entertainment. They come out every Tuesday and Friday of each week.
There’s also Harry Shearer’s Le Show (another free file) that discusses the politics and news of the past week. I don’t particularly care about his skits but do enjoy his perspective on politics and makes for interesting listening.
Please keep in mind that the links to the free files were valid when this post was published but over time, Audible may decide to remove them. So get them now just in case!

Her father was pleased, but as he thought that at her age she certainly ought to like pretty presents, he told her to choose something. “Well, dear father,” she said, “as you insist upon it, I beg that you will bring me a rose….”
