Download 6 Classic Novels as Audiobooks Free from Apple
Want to read some classic literature? Or rather, would you like to hear some classic literature read to you? Apple has released a free set of audiobooks for classic novels, including Pride and Prejudice, The Time Machine, Frankenstein, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Secret Garden, and Winnie the Pooh.
Each of the audiobooks is narrated by a celebrity, and is available for free as a download from the Apple Books app for iPhone or iPad, or the iTunes app on Mac or Windows. If you choose to download the audiobooks to a mobile device like an iPhone or iPad, then they could make for some great road trip listening as you venture out for the holidays or a weekend adventure.
You can access all of the books at this iTunes link here, or you can access the individual audiobooks at the links below:
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and narrated by Kate Beckinsale
- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, and narrated by Tituss Burgess
- The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and narrated by Karen Gillian
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, and narrated by Kelsey Grammer
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and narrated by Aaron Mahnke
- Winnie the Pooh, narrated by the Disney Book Group
Each audiobook can be downloaded for free and then listened to at anytime on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Windows PC.
It’s not entirely clear if the audiobooks will be permanently free or if it’s a temporary offer, and it’s also unclear if the audiobooks are region restricted or only available in the USA, but if you have any interest in enjoying any of the aforementioned books, check them out. Enjoy them around your residence, during a commute, on a road trip, or at any other time.
If this collection is whetting your appetite for audiobooks, there’s neat free app on the App Store called AudioBooks which gives access to thousands of other audiobooks (some of better quality than others) too. And of course you can also sign up for Audible from Amazon to gain access to tons of other audiobooks as well.
