Audiobook Week: Try (a short) one right now!

I recently stumbled upon a new website that I really enjoy - Audiobook Community.  To celebrate Audiobook Month they are putting out (free) short stories and excerpts of longer books each week.  I've already downloaded a few of them and today I listened to a moving essay called Always Go To The Funeral (you can listen at that link) that was just 5 minutes long.

If you are unsure about audiobooks, hop on over to Audiobook Community and try a short sample.  You never know, you might really like it! 

Available downloads include Winnie the Pooh, a short stories by Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway, a Sherlock Holmes adventure, an excerpt of Frank McCourt's memoir ANGELA'S ASHES read by the author, the first chapter of BLOODY JACK by L.A. Mayer, and many others.  Most are between 15-30 minutes in length - just right for a quick break.
