This week’s audiobooks: Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

You need to download Overdrive media player, too.

 This is a fun program that HarperAudio is taking part in too. Spread the word!

Whoa! Next week’s titles are Little Brother by Cory Doctorow and The Trial by Franz Kafka! (Aside: I usually associate Overdrive with the kind of onerous DRM that Doctorow doesn’t like — even more restrictive than Audible’s, which prevents me getting to buy his audiobooks via Audible, or at least that’s how I understand it. I’m very curious to see what the licensing terms are here.) And looking further ahead I see a production of Francis B. Gummere’s translation of Beowulf!

UPDATE: The download ends up as a DRM-free MP3 fileset, not one of Overdrive’s DRM-laden WMA filesets. Recommendation for AAC/M4B audiobook devices: use Chapter and Verse to assemble a single audiobook file with chapters from the resulting files.
