Alexa Offers Free Tim Curry Narration Of ‘A Christmas Carol’ Until January 3rd

Amazon's Echo product line has exploded over the past 12 months, and their Alexa technology is easier than ever to get into the hands of consumers thanks to their more affordable Echo Dot model.

While nearly all of their Alexa-supported products sold out during the holiday shopping season, those who have already gotten their hands on one can now access a new holiday feature to celebrate Christmas.

As of now, Amazon has opened up free playback of the great Charles Dickens novella, A Christmas Carol. Better yet, this version is narrated by Tim Curry, a well-known actor that has been nominated for several Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Awards.

To access this feature say: “Alexa, read A Christmas Carol from Audible” and the narration will begin, free of charge.  However, free access ends January 3rd so be sure to try this functionality before then.
