Goodreads to Add Free Audio Samples

By Dianna Dilworth 

Do you like listening to audiobooks? Online reading community Goodreads wants to make it easier for readers to discover good audio books and the Amazon-owned site is integrating clips from titles into its site.

In the coming days, Goodreads will feature audio samples for around 180,000 Audible titles. Here is more from the Goodreads blog:

If you like what you hear, you can add the title to your “Want to Read” shelf. For Goodreads members in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, or Australia who are not yet Audible members, you can take advantage of their free trial! Once you click on the Listen icon, you will see a link to the trial. Sign up and you’ll receive two free audiobooks plus a 30-day free trial of Audible.
