Free Audiobooks to Download All Summer

Happy June! It’s Audiobook Month and you can get free audiobooks. Yep, free. No credit card required. (Make sure to bookmark this page so you can come back each day/week to download your books.)

My feet are still recovering from walking the Javits for three days at Book Expo America and Book Con, but I had to pop in and share how you can get free audiobooks all month long. Audiobooks help me read more books throughout the year and has turned my husband, a reluctant reader, into a reader again. Last night I caught him browsing our library’s audiobook catalog on his own. Gasp.
