My husband listens to ebooks all the time and recommended one he's currently reading but I can't recall. I will get back to you if there is a good site for that. :)

I've posted excerpts of my manuscript on Squidoo, which is free to use as well. I'd love some feedback on my first novel! I've created an index page called The Munroe Series (there are 11 parts so far) I've only posted 2 of them, it's still a work in progress.. http://www.squidoo.com/themunroeseries
