Freebie from

I'm a fairly regular listener to audio books though I'm in the Dark Ages still, relying on tape and cd. Ages ago The Times gave away an mp3 copy of 'Pride and Prejudice' through and I registered and got my free download and onto the mailing list.

Recently, I downloaded another item, this time a recording of a session from the Bath Literature Festival:
"Bath-based BBC Audiobooks hosted a sell-out event for the Bath Literature Festival. Reading Between the Lines: From Page to Production featured Rula Lenska, Lynne Truss, Sir Derek Jacobi, and Lorelei King in an entertaining and lively discussion about the art of the audiobook. They were joined by Sunday Times audio critic Karen Robinson, BBC Audiobooks' Publishing Director Jan Paterson, and Senior Producer Kate Thomas.

The panel discussed all aspects of what makes a good audiobook. Topics debated ranged from casting, production, recording, accents, pronunciation, translation, and editing. Rula Lenska, Sir Derek Jacobi, and Lorelei King are all highly respected readers having recorded numerous titles for BBC Audiobooks and other publishers. Lynne Truss appears in the audiobook versions of her two best sellers Eats, Shoots and Leaves and Talk to the Hand."
You can listen to a sample and add it to your basket to download for free here.
