If I'm not mistaken, all the ebooks in the collection are public domain and available for free, either directly at Amazon (e.g. here's Pride & Prejudice [amazon.com]) or through Project Guteberg [gutenberg.org]. Getting them as individual files would also make organization a heck of a lot easier, as the 50 titles apparently come as one file, and the only way to navigate between them is through a table of contents.

Edit: Here's a link to Amazon's list of free popular classics [amazon.com].

I think the same may be true for the audio books collection, as Project Gutenberg also offers free audio book files.

In short, you're paying $1 for free content which is more difficult to organize/navigate. Thumbs down.

You are forgetting those with slow ship credit that could be used.

I guess you can find the audiobooks at librivox.org. It also has an app like audible . All free and cool.try the different files/ audios and choose the voice that you like.

For all 10? Also, in the description, it mentions chapters. Is the audiobook the full book or merely random chapters? Txs

102 hours, so full audiobooks I believe. I think the chapter list is to help find the start of each of the 10 audiobooks as it is in one book rather than 10 separate books.

I was disappointed to find the audiobooks each had 15-20 seconds of silence at the end of each one... so not really 102 hours & 19 minutes.
