Borders adds online audiobook store and celebrates with Into the Wild for free and Twilight for $9.95!

Today's Publishers Weekly had this story on Borders.com adding an audiobook store with MP3 titles that can be downloaded to any player - from iPod to Windows-based. We learned about Borders' download stations in their stores last February . To celebrate their new audiobook download partnership with OverDrive Media, Borders has some hot deals. From now through July 19th, grab a free download of Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild, narrated by Philip Franklin for FREE - just click here. Plus, there are fifteen bestsellers for just $9.95 each through July 22nd. This offer includes Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Obama's The Audacity of Hope, and Douglas Adams' The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Perfect timing for summertime listening!

I purchased "Brisingr" by Christopher Paolini as an audiobook download. They must have made the audio file from a set of scratched CDs, because the audio quality varies from excellent to awful.

Listen to a sample at

I contacted Borders.com "Customer Service" but they don't seem to understand what the problem is.
