BooksFree.com Launches MP3-CD Audio Book Renting Service

The largest library on the web combines MP3 technology with the convenience of online audio book renting.

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) February 7, 2005 -- BooksFree.com, the world's largest online library of over 40,000 paperback titles, announces the launch of their MP3-CD audio book renting service, featuring over 800 MP3-CD audio book titles and expanding monthly. To launch this service, BooksFree.com is offering a 14-day free trial membership, available at www.booksfree.com/mp3.

"The main advantage of this new format is that the average unabridged audio book fits on one disc," says BooksFree.com CEO Doug Ross. "Portable hybrid CD & MP3-CD players are becoming more popular and affordable. Most newer DVD players include the capability of playing MP3-CDs, and any computer with a CD-ROM drive can play them. Many newer automobiles are also coming with MP3-CD compatible players. Consumers are always looking for a simpler, more affordable way to do something. The answer for audio book listeners is MP3-CDs."

BooksFree.com offers several different membership packages for all their renting services, allowing members to customize their services by choosing the right plan for their needs. All rented titles, whether audio books or paperback, include free shipping and a prepaid return mailer, with no late fees and no due dates.

BooksFree.com will also be offering an MP3-compatible CD player at a low cost, allowing members to take advantage of the latest MP3 audio book technology.
