Free Downloads of A Christmas Carol

A few weeks ago for our Free Resource of the Day Email we featured multiple versions of Charles Dicken's classic A Christmas Carol. We decided it would be best to feature it in our newsletter as well, as we've found five free downloadable editions of this classic tale.

Listen to the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he's haunted by The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. Here are the five editions:

A Christmas Carol from LibriVox - Read in five staves by five different narrators from LibriVox and available on MP3 download.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Audio Book Podcast - Professionally narrated by Patrick Horgan. We've been told that one of the staves might cut off, but are not sure which one.

A Christmas Carol from Wired for Books - Well narrated by Karen Chan. This edition is on streaming Real Audio or can be downloaded on MP3 from the Wired for Books MP3 Page.

A Christmas Carol Performed by Orson Welles' Campbell Playhouse - One hour radio dramatization performed by Orson Welles and the Campbell Playhouse crew on December 23, 1938. Available on Real Audio and MP3 Download.

A Christmas Carol on The Classic Tales Podcast - Veteran actor B.J. Harrison has started narrating his edition of A Christmas Carol on his popular podcast. He's done Part One of Three and we're guessing he'll complete it before Christmas.

If you're looking for A Christmas Carol on CD we have a number of versions for sale:

A Christmas Carol Narrated by Anton Lesser (Unabridged)

A Christmas Carol Performed by Patrick Stewart

NPR's A Christmas Carol Performed by Jonathan Winters

A Christmas Carol Told by Jim Dale
