Take a book for a spin in an I-Go car

April 8, 2010


Random House Audio logoNeed to book an I-GO car today? Now you can get literal about it: Random House Audio has partnered with I-GO to convert smart drivers to even smarter audiobook listeners. Call it the latest chapter in I-GO’s epic quest to make car sharing part of our collective culture.

By visiting www.randomhouseaudio.com/carshare, I-GO members can download free full-length recordings from popular authors like David Rakoff, Tami Hoag, Luanne Rice, Rick Riordan and Kate DiCamillo by signing up for Random House Audio’s monthly newsletter, and receive 15% off their entire purchase by using the promo code “CARSHARE” at checkout.

We’ll also be stocking I-GO cars with mix CDs of audiobook clips from bestselling titles — a sure way to make any drive more entertaining.

To kick off this special partnership, Random House author Elizabeth Berg will speak at the Barnes & Noble (downtown DePaul campus), 1 E. Jackson Blvd., on Wednesday, April 28, at 7pm and sign copies of her new novel, The Last Time I Saw You.

Accessible from anywhere, easy to take on the go, and as simple as downloading a song, audiobooks are the perfect companion for an I-GO driver with busy hands and a curious mind. In addition to I-GO, car sharing services in eight other cities across the country are participating in the program, including organizations in San Francisco, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Boulder, Denver, Buffalo, Ithaca, NY, and Burlington, VT.

The Random House Audio Publishing Group is the preeminent audio publisher in the industry today, publishing more than 300 titles a year from bestselling authors like Dan Brown, John Grisham, Stieg Larsson, Sue Grafton, Sophie Kinsella, J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Rick Riordan and Christopher Paolini in both CD and digital formats. Random House Audio is dedicated to producing top-quality fiction and nonfiction audiobooks written and read by the best in the business.

Take an audiobook for a test drive today, and turn your next trip in an I-GO car into a page-turner you won’t want to put down.
