Two new Audible freebies

Audible has two new freebies available on their site; I found them through the Audible app, so I don't think they are any great secret.

The first, "Agatha Christie: An Autobiography," can be found here. It says the book is actually narrated by Christie herself, but I haven't listened to it to make sure that is accurate.

The second is "Legion" by Brandon Sanderson, and it can be found here. This is a science fiction title, and it reminds me a little bit of the television show "The Pretender." It's short, so if you liked the show this might be a good title to experiment with.

Enjoy!

Le Show, September 30, 2012, by Harry Shearer

http://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B007U5BSMW

Quote:
Le Show is a program of satire, humor, and commentary about the week's news. Comedy sketches written and performed by multi-talented multimedia artist Harry Shearer, interwoven with an eclectic, ever-changing blend of music; from world to pop, soul to jazz. Shearer says about Le Show, "I do it because I don't do standup, and I don't do sitcoms, and the radio broadcast enables me to do what I think is funny in a broadcast medium without having to listen either to network executives or Canadian producers."

About Harry Shearer: He co-wrote and starred in the seminal rock mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap; he's the voice of Mr. Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Kent Brockman, and nearly a dozen other characters on the long-running FOX-TV hit, The Simpsons; and he was a cast member and writer on Saturday Night Live. Le Show, has been on the air since 1983.
Anyone brave enough to add this to their account and see what it really is?

There are a number of these available in Audible. Most are $0.05 to $0.10, but this one and another are free. I downloaded the other, and it was just a 7-minute snippet of a different audiobook from the title. I think Audible was testing a new system for pre-ordering audiobooks, and this was their sandbox. They have since "gone live" with their first real pre-order, an audiobook for "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies."

Thanks for the links


I notice the Christie is only 1 hr and 20 mins which seems impossibly short for an autobiography that's 544 pages in Hardcover. It's also listed as a performance as opposed to an audiobook. I'm guessing this is some kind of promo and not the whole book?

According to the product description (emphasis mine):

"These audio excerpts were dictated by Agatha Christie herself."

I assume that means she only dictated certain parts of her autobiographies, and those are what are collected here.

For those interested in more episodes of Le Show, they can be found at KCRW (the station he broadcasts from). There are 613 episodes available, going back to Jan 2001. You either listen online or download many of the episodes as MP3 files. You can also subscribe to the podcast through the website or iTunes.
