Where to download free audiobooks

I enjoy audiobooks, but don't care much for their prices. They tend to be more expensive than printed versions or ebooks, perhaps because publishers sometimes hire Oscar winners as narrators. At Amazon, the audio CD of Laura Hillebrand's Unbroken costs almost $27. That’s about $12 more than the paperback version and almost four times as much as the Kindle ebook.

Audiobooks that are downloaded can be slightly cheaper and are more versatile. With a digital book on your smartphone or music player, you can listen while you're working out, cleaning the house, or walking the dog. Audible  and Audiobooks.com each have an extensive library of audiobook downloads, but it charges a monthly fee.

So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I could borrow an audiobook from my local library for free. To find out if your library has the same deal, check out my column at MyWell-Being.com.
