Many books are from the classics. Such sample books include “Great Expectations,” “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “A Tale of Two Cities” with others featuring authors including Jack London and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, writer of the Sherlock Holmes Tales. Some sites feature biographies (Nancy on her father, Frank Sinatra, for example) or longstanding favorites like “The Secret Garden” and P.G. Wodehouse’s “Jeeves Takes Charge.”
In addition to the great price – free, remember? – there’s the convenience of being able to listen to the books on your computer, phone or MP3 player. Or, make a copy on a CD to play on your vehicle’s CD player.
Enjoy your free audiobooks, just like you enjoy your CheckINN Direct savings on more than 10,000 hotels.

In his “Top 5 Ways to Lower Your Workforce Lodging Costs” webinar, Rogg shared insights the company has gained over 30 years of privately negotiating hotel rates for its thousands of business clients.
CLC specializes in serving companies with workforce travelers. They’re the crews, drivers, field service reps and other “windshield warriors” who hit the road on construction, installation, delivery and other jobs with frequent travel to work sites.
The discounted rates that CLC provides its clients come from volume. In fact, as Rogg noted in the Webinar, CLC typically books 25,000 hotel rooms a night – annually, it’s more than 9 million.
Rogg’s pointers are particularly relevant given that demand is going up for hotel rooms nationwide these days. That is seriously limiting the bargaining power for lower rates that companies had in the past three years.
You can watch the webinar conducted for the National Federal of Independent Business (NFIB), a CLC Lodging partner.
