Whether you are stuck in traffic, waiting for your connection, cramming for that English test, or just relaxing on your sofa, Traveling Classics provides your most beloved audiobooks at the touch of your finger.
This application contains a full, unabridged AUDIOBOOK of The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and read by Karen Savage. Mary Lennox is a spoiled, selfish little girl who is sent to live with her uncle after the death of her parents. Left on her own to play, she wanders the gardens of the grand estate. Mysterious events begin after she finds the key to a garden that has been locked up for years.
The Traveling Classics Reader provides:
- A crisp, sleek interface for navigating the book and controlling playback
- A delightfully clear and engaging narration of the entire book
- The full text of the novel, which scrolls in sync with the narration for easy reference
- Never loose your place; the reader will keep track of where you are in the book so can resume playback at the click of a button.
The recording used in this application is taken from the LibriVox project. This project has volunteers from around the world record their favorite classic books and then release them for the world to enjoy.
This application contains the full book in one download so that you can listen to the book wherever you are, without the need for an internet connection. Perfect for those long plane trips or commutes on the subway. This does, however, mean that the application is larger than most. So you will have to download it over WiFi or through iTunes on your Mac or PC.

The reader was apparently at home since you can occasionally hear a pet bird in the background.
It did its job. I was looking for an audiobook story that would keep me interested yet not distracted as I worked. I wish the price was lower since there are so many other great novels out there in audiobook format available for free (so long you buy the reader application).
I loved this app
I bought this audiobook because I am listening to "a little princess" read by Karen Savage, only to find out that this is not read by Karen but someone else. I would like it if you update your info. I really enjoy Karen's voice and would not have purchased it.
