B&N Lauches Audiobook Store
Barnes and Noble just launched an Audiobook MP3 Store, and to celebrate the launch, B&N is offering nine free titles for download for a limited time. The free titles include: The Babysitter's Code by Laura Lippman, Great Day by Kurt Vonnegut, Super Goat Man by Jonathan Lethem, Best New Horror by Joe Hill, Fathers by Alice Munro, Truth or Dare by Elizabeth Berg, Ysrael by Junot Diaz, Merrano of the Dry Country by Louis L'Amore, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. For some reason, the page lists these downloads at $.01 per title, but once you add the titles to your cart, the price is reduced down to zero. In addition, B&N is offering 50 percent off any one title in the Audiobook MP3 Store with an online coupon available through May 3. That's a pretty good deal for an audiobook.
