Free Audiobooks at the Olympics

Audiobooks made an appearance in Olympics commercials this week. In the AT&T commercial embedded above, marathon runner Ryan Hall took his smartphone for a run with a couple massive audiobooks.

If you want to follow his audiobook reading list, you can download a free audiobook copy of The Odyssey and a free audiobook copy of Moby Dick at Project Gutenberg. Those files are available for a variety of devices, just scroll down to see all your options.

Here’s AT&T’s description of the short ad: “We open on Team USA marathoner Ryan Hall, getting ready for a run. On his AT&T smartphone, he begins streaming the epic audio book, The Odyssey. It becomes clear that his run is nothing short of a marathon as he passes through different towns and terrain — all the while streaming his book over AT&T’s 4G network. With AT&T’s expansive 4G coverage, Ryan can run and run, keeping himself entertained with every step.”
