Wow, I never thought about it like that before.

Amazon should allow the delivery of all of its supported file formats through personal document delivery and the web browser. i.e. MP3 and PDF.

Also the web browser should support links that target new. Just load them in the main window.

Needless to say, the news is very wonderful since I can get some audiobooks without paying any sum. It is very good at helping my student in learning English, especially listening skill.

However, there is a remaining inconvenient matter, that is the price Audible offering is quite high, at least in my case. LOL.

Great news. The question I have as a Kindle user is simple. How! Is there an update or will it be through the Kindle store?

Vuong Nguyen is right, Audible's offerings are expensively priced--interesting given parent companie's long standing demands for low-priced ebook content.

Amazing that it took Amazon and Audible so long to get to this delivery. Makes great sense.

@ Jenny: Of course, I hope one day soon Amazon reduce the current cost and we here in a developing country can get lots of benefits, especially in education.

My question is, can i get Audiobooks for kindle downloading with out having to join a book-club that I have to pay monthly doe for privilege to paying more for audiobook downloads to my kindle,I only download a eBook ever two or three months, so joining a audio book club is not cost effective for me?
