Free Audiobooks From For quite some time now I've subscribed through iTunes to various podcasts.  These have mostly been technology and software related.  After a few months I noticed that a great many of the podcasts I listen to regurgitate the same news over and over again, so there was no need for me to be listening to more than half a dozen.  As such I unsubscribed from a few.

So then I found that I was a bit bored.  No longer would I find myself listening to podcasts on my iPod while doing my daily chores, out walking, at work and such,and have found that even with my extensive mp3 library, music gets boring after a while.

I went on the hunt for something new, and came across Scott Sigler’s website.  Scott is a novelist, a best selling author, of many horror fiction novels.  He releases his novels as podcasts and as a printed book. The podcasts are free, so I started listening to Infected, which was really quite good.  Scott has an impressive reading voice, and the content of the novel was thrilling.

Once I finished Infected, I found myself wanting more, and am now listening to Nocturnal.  Nocturnal is a very different story to Infected, but thus far it is just as gripping.

I went looking around for more Audiobooks/Podcasts and found iTunes Library to be a bit of a nightmare to search, so I went looking online instead and found which contains an impressive library of titles in many genres.

The best thing I have found about is the way it allows you to download the books.

You have a choice of programs to use, such as iTunes, Zune and PodcastReady, you can also subscribe to a normal RSS feed.

More importantly though, it allows you to download at a frequency which is fit for you. will send you a new episode everyday, every other day, every three days, every week, every other week or every month.  You can ever select an option to release all episodes which then allows you to download all episodes to your player at once.  That way you don’t have to wait, you just have the book there ready and waiting to be played. is a free service, unlike which requires a subscription fee.

If you like Podcasts, and you like Audiobooks, give a go.  You have nothing to lose, and a great deal to gain
