A Tip for Kindle Owners with Access to an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch: Thousands of Free, High Quality Audiobook Readings

I know I’ve posted before about great sources of read-aloud books that will play on your Kindle, and there’s an entire chapter on this in my bestselling book, The Complete User’s Guide To the Amazing Amazon Kindle 2: Tips, Tricks, & Links To Unlock Cool Features & Save You Hundreds on Kindle Content, but I just posted about another great service for the first time over at our sister site iPad Nation Daily: Enjoying eBooks with iPad, iPhone, or Touch, and I wanted to share the link with Kindle Nation citizens right away.

The bottom line: Audiobooks has a great app runs anywhere from free to 99 cents for folks who have access to an iPad, an iPhone, or an iPod Touch.

For more information about its user-friendly features and easy access to over 3,000 free classics in over a dozen language, presented by talented readers, check out this post:

How Hip Can We Get Here at Kindle Nation? Totally Hip!

By Stephen Windwalker, Editor of Kindle Nation Daily 
It’s not just any other week here in Kindle Nation, but we’ll start off just as if it were by preparing, and on Tuesday sending out, a fresh issue of the free weekly Kindle Nation newsletter that’s gone out every week but one since Kindle Nation was launched on February 2, 2009.

I’m proud of that consistency and determined to continue it come hell or high water or, in this week’s case, the total hip replacement for which I will be entering Mount Auburn Hospital at mid-day tomorrow Wednesday. It’s my right hip, and it’s probably the pretty natural consequence of years that I spent as what folks very politely call a “Clydesdale marathon runner.” There are no more marathons in my future, but with the new hip I expect to be able to do a lot more swimming, walking, and keeping up with my 11-year-old son and his little dog than might otherwise be possible.

I expect to miss a couple of days with the surgery, but my colleague Tom Dulaney will be stepping up to the plate to take a few swings for me. I hope you will enjoy his information and insights in daily posts this week, and I expect to be back at my keyboard well in advance of the following issue of Kindle Nation’s weekly email newsletter next Tuesday (April 20), while I also keep up the new responsiblities associated with iPad Nation Daily.

Oh! That’s right, I almost forgot to mention it, but there’s a new blog here, for folks who also do a fair amount of ebook reading on the iPad, the iPhone, or the iPod Touch. If you would like to check it out, there’s a free 14-day trial for the Kindle edition of iPad Nation Daily if you click here.

So there. Thanks for indulging me, but enough about me. Let’s talk about you and your Kindle!
