A new initiative of Oneworld alliance, which is both free and green, provides you with a solution! Springwise reports that starting this month, travellers passing through Brussels, Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino airports can download three audiobooks for free.
The process is very simple -when you travel through one of these three airports, simply log on to the airport wifi signal and enter the following URL (free access): http://library.oneworld.com.
Then you can download audiobooks to your laptop, smartphones or PDA—any device that connects to the airports' wifi networks. You can pick from forty titles, covering fiction, business, society and travel; available in English, Dutch, French and Italian.
You can of course argue that if you have Kindle or any other eBook reader device it will give you a much better solution. BUT firstly not everyone have it as it's still expensive, second not everyone like to read from an eBook device reader and last but not least, it might not be such an eco-friendly solution as we don't know yet if eBooks readers are better for the environment (you can find more about it at http://www.ecolibris.net/ebooks.asp)
One more kudos to Oneworld, a global alliance that brings together ten of the world's biggest and best airlines - all travellers, whether Oneworld customers or not, can use this service.
