Just checked on itunes for free stuff, and saw they have the book The Alchemist for free (audio-book). It's written by Paulo Coelho, and it's about a person looking for gold and meeting people on his journey.

I downloaded it, the length is over 4 hours, but hey, it's free, might as well try it.

UPDATE: This audio recording of the book is read by Jeremy Irons, so take that as you will.

UPDATE: I will try to keep this thread going as often as possible, when ?I see iTunes giving away free stuff, and I'll try to give my opinions on it.

It's a pretty good read, though I'm not a big fan of audio books.

And the free single of the week is "Go On, Say It" by Blind Pilot.

The song is decent enough, nothing spectacular, kinda mellow but sorta loud for a mellow song, sung in what kinda sounds but unison but likely studio editing. I like how the drumbeat is a constant, just keeping the flow.

I find myself waiting for the song to explode into something great, but doesn't just kinda calms down, and the strings section sounds kinda weak.

Not the best song, worth listening to it once, at least just trying it out, it's free. ;)

I've never listened to one myself, as I'd tend to read much faster and not word for word, but some people like it, gives them something to listen to en-route to work if they don't have time to read a book (driving to work).
