Audio-books may not be exactly the best way to go through a book, but they are the perfect option for those who just don’t have the time to have a book open next to them all day. People can listen to audio-books when they are working or traveling, so there are some advantages to picking up the audio version of your favorite books. Besides, you can always download some free audio-books to have something to listen to at all times. These 8 websites let you download audio books for your Kindle or iPad for free:
