ebooks

Would you like to publish your own sound files? As a Dutch native speaker, you can create sound files to help Dutch learners. If you are studying Dutch, you can record your voice to practice your pronunciation -- and ideally, let the rest of us enjoy it too. :)

This is one: http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/languages/nl

I'm certain that I have another link, but I have to search for that one on my other computer ...

Hmmm... While that site does seem to contain some really nice gems, all of them seem to be rather old, which means that the language used can be somewhat archaic.

I've never used an ereader myself, so, unfortunately, I can't suggest a better alternative though.

I couldn't find the link I thought I had ... ;(

@Teodor: Yes, you're right! Those books are quite old. If I found some books online it was mostly through torrent-sites ... recently a download called "opruiming 01-10 (E-books)NLT". That had some very good and recent books.

I have found a website name www.loyalbooks.com. But when I have went to download audio book from there I have seen most of the audiobooks mp3 is very big (more than 400 MB). Its taking time to download. Can you suggest me that how can I download in a short period of time.

Also can you let me know that will I able to download in a short period of time through Amazon's free selection.
