Michelle | 2 comments Hey,

Just wondered if anyone gets audiobooks from Cracker Barrel? They carry maybe 30 different current titles that can be rented for $3.50 a week. Well, they charge you the entire price of the book at check out and when you bring it back they refund all but the $3.50.

I have uploaded them onto my ipod and taken them back the same week, so in theory it is a much better deal than audible.com.

I guess the drawback is the limited selection, but in the month that I have discovered the books the selection has turned over nicely. Additionally, the books can be dropped off at any Cracker Barrel in the US.

That's a great idea, Michelle! I have gotten audiobooks from Cracker Barrel when I'm on a driving trip, but I never thought of just doing it at home. It is very inexpensive! Unfortunately, the CBs are both 45 min - 1 hr away from me. I could get a few of the books when I travel and download them for later on, though!

We get such a wide selection of audiobooks, updated about every two weeks, via the library's usage of Overdrive at our library's online site.

But still, worth a trip to the local CB just to see what they've got.
