Comments Reply 1 of 9 der kopf Posts: 2,275member January 18, 2003 4:41AM Why not try alt.binaries.sounds.audiobooks? Mind you, there aren't many 'free' audiobooks around, and if you do find free ones, you might very well be pirating.

By the way, what is the format extension so i can look it up on limewire?[ 01-19-2003: Message edited by: nx7oe ]</p> Reply 4 of 9 david r Posts: 135member January 19, 2003 12:58AM Audible books are tied to your Audible account. When you first try to play an audible book on iTunes, it'll ask you for your login/password and will verify that the account has paid for that book.

I don't know if they have any free samples, but, really, what are you looking for a sample of? It's an audiobook. It works. Some books are overpriced, some are unabridged, some are great to have and are worth the money. If you want an audiobook, this is the only way to go, IMHO. I personally love audible. Totally worth the money (audible listener is the best deal. Any book for $14.95 plus a subscription.)

I, and other posters actually pay for our Audible books. I can only speak for myself, but I get very annoyed with this "everything is free" mentality.I think if you're boneheaded enough to go on this forum and ask where one can get free Audiobooks, you deserve to get a rude reply.

I did exactly this and for my $14.95, I got Steve Jobs, One months subscription to Macworld and Red Rabbit. Well worth it. Sign In or Register to comment.
