Free Audio Book Downloads

I came across a pretty cool website that might be of interest to teachers and students at the start of the school year. ThoughtAudio.com is a website that offers free MP3 streams and downloads of audio books.

Here’s a sampling of some school readings.

Call of the Wild – Jack London

The Prince – Nicollo Machiavelli

The Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge – Ambrose Bierce

The Red Badge of Courage – Stephen Crane

The Declaration of Independence

The Constitution

The books are segmented into chapters. The chapters can be streamed over the Internet by clicking on them or can be downloaded for local playback on your computer or MP3 player. For $10/year users can purchase a Zip Pass to allow them to download the entire book’s segments at one time. The Zip Pass is unlimited and can be used for as many books as a user wants.

This might be a great option for students who require audio support for reading. It looks like ThoughtAudio is planning on adding more titles soon. Check them out at ThoughtAudio.com.

    Thanks for the tip. This site has some of the great classics and many books that our school uses as required reading. I am passing this along to our teachers too!
