Looking for better ways to kill time on the daily commute? Many people swear by digital audiobooks, and today Audible, one of the medium’s pioneers, launched an offer exclusive for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 customers in the U.S.—a free audiobook, just for trying out the service.* (To learn more about the Windows 8 offer, check out Kristina Libby’s latest post.)
To get your free audiobook, simply download the Audible app and then:
- Tap New to Audible on the sign-in screen
- Tap Create an account
- Pick your free book.
Your options are The Power Trip, Jackie Collins’ guilty glamorama pleasure; the high-tension Navy Seal autobiography American Sniper by Chris Kyle; and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby, narrated by Jake Gyllenhaal (and coming soon to a theater near you). Once downloaded, your book will show up in your library and is available from the Audible app on all your devices. Offer ends May 13.
And don’t forget that if you decide to subscribe to Audible (which does require a credit card), you’ll get a second free book. Which book will you go for?
*The fine print: Offer available to new Audible registrants that register through the Windows 8 or Windows Phone app. Offer good for a limited time only and while promotional supplies last. United States only. No credit card required.
