Audible could raise your children better than you could. Why? Because they’re giving away a free Sherlock Holmes Christmas story.
This is the first link you need. It gets you a free trial and one free credit (most books are one credit, some are two) for the best source of Audio entertainment around. After your trial you can get a monthly one or two credit subscription or you can go on a $10/year “light” account so you can get all these great deals (like their annual Christmas gift!) without the monthly commitment. I think you’ll want the monthly though. It’s quite awesome.
This is a 45 minute short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and is one of his many Sherlock Holmes short stories. Here is Audible’s little blurb on their holiday gift to us.
The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we’ve got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle”. In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery. And, since a great story calls for a great voice, we’ve brought in Emmy Award nominee Alan Cumming (TV’s The Good Wife), a past Audie Award winner for Best Male Narrator and one of our very favorite narrators. We enjoyed it, and we hope you will too. Happy listening and happy holidays!
