Are the books still listed as free? If so you should see this

Because you own this Kindle book, you can add the professional narration of Cocaine Blues (Phryne Fisher #1) for the reduced price of $4.99.

Just click on the link under professional narration and it will take you to Audible to get the audiobook.

Good eye, but it's not working exactly right:

"Because you own this Kindle book, you can add the professional narration of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the reduced price of $0.00."

When I click on "professional narration" it tells me $14.95 or free with a 30-day trial...

--> hwlester, I think that happened to me on a couple of free titles I already owned/have in my Amazon Library and when I clicked the button that had the price listed/30-day trial, it put it into the Audible cart at 0.00. I was able to get all 27 of the free ones right now.

Thanks, I was just about to post that. I clicked "Buy on Audible.com" just to see what happened and it showed Price $14.95, You Pay $0.00.

I finally figured it out. Click on Professional Narration. In the next window click on Buy at Audible.Com in the upper right corner. The price will then be listed as $0.00 in your shopping cart.

Thanks for this, Nightbird. What a treasure trove!

Edit: Oops! Sorry to repeat the solution.

This is awesome! I read and my husband would rather listen to audiobooks, so for a reduced price I can have both formats. I can even get the cheap audiobooks for books I've already bought (or gotten free). Neat.

As if I don't give audible enough of my hard earned money
No but seriously this is really really cool I just looked up on Audible an ebook I brought ages ago and haven't had the chance to read and it gives me this message



With the travelling time I would get to listen to it long before I get around to having some spare time to read it
The original book only cost me 99c so its still a bargain to spend the extra $1.99 and get the audio version

Don't miss Gulliver's Travels. David Hyde Pierce's narration is excellent. I already purchased Anne Hathaway's narration of The Wizard of Oz and it was worth the full price. The opportunity to get these free is amazing.


Edit: David Suchet, Masterpiece Theater's definitive Poirot, narrates The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

For horror fans - some of the Permuted Press titles are in the list - $.99 plus $1.99 for the audiobook. Also Crossroad/Macabre Ink. A lot of theirs are $2.99 plus $1.99 for the audiobook.

A few:

The Light at the End by John Skipp and Craig Spector.

Strange Seed by T.M. Wright (I just bought this a couple of days ago - yippee).

I never heard of this guy but this one looks really interesting (originally published by S&S in 1984):

The Switch by William Bayer

Quote:
Spoiler:
"He spent hours drawing sketches of how she might be killed. And the more work he put into them the more exciting the idea became. And then he started following her and then he was caught up. And the more caught up he was the more definitely she was doomed, for once an idea took hold in him he felt compelled to carry it out

It was the Switch that made his crime a work of art... "

At first the two killings seem unrelated. The lonely call girl murdered on New York City's West Side had never met the prim schoolteacher slain across town in the far safer preserve of the city's Upper East Side. But someone has decapitated them both and switched their heads: a deed that is apparently its own motive, a crime as pointless as it was perfectly executed.

Detective Frank Janek immediately knows that he has entered the realm of a lethal madness. Middle-aged, divorced, a man centered solely on his work, Janek is practiced in piercing the minds of the criminals he pursues. In the absence of clues from the killer, he has only the awful symmetry of the crime to work with, only his own finely honed intuition. "This was a crime conceived in the shadows," he thinks, "There was precision in it, and passion. Concentrated rage and a love of order. A need to beautify. Even some strange, unfathomable, as yet uncatalogued species of love."

The challenge-to become as precise, as creative, as cold as his prey-begins to take its toll. The tenuous psychological thread leads Janek back into the unsettled past-- not only the killer's but his own. His own passion and rage and unresolved love. The love he bore for the man who trained him-a retired cop whose apparent suicide he has shied from investigating too closely, the passion for justice that has made him a marked man within the police fraternity. The rage he feels at ancient crimes that have finally burst into full and terrifying flower. And most of all, the new love he feels for the mysterious woman in whom all these strands of the past seem to converge. It is Janek's love for Caroline that leads him at last to a blinding vision of the purpose behind the grisly double homicide.

Too late, he realizes that the case of "Switched Heads" may only be the bait...

You have to have an Audible account to do this, correct? Is there such a thing as a free Audible account?
