Audio books added to Kindle downloads

Click to follow on Thursday added books read aloud by celebrities, authors and others to the library of works that can be wirelessly downloaded to the latest generation Kindle electronic readers.



More than 50,000 works from Amazon subsidiary Audible Audiobooks have joined the list of titles available for purchase using wireless telecom connections built into the Kindle.

Previously, Kindle users needed to download digitized files of books from the website and then transfer them to the devices with USB memory sticks.
