This year you can celebrate Father’s Day in style with Samuel L. Jackson. Audible, an Amazon.com, Inc. subsidiary (NASDAQ:AMZN), is the leading provider of premium digital spoken audio information and entertainment on the Internet, offering customers a new way to enhance and enrich their lives every day. Together, they are offering a FREE download of Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson’s performance of the mock children's book, Go the F**k to Sleep Monday 6/9/14 through Father’s Day, 6/15/14 at www.audible.com/sleep.

Go the F**ck to Sleep was written by Adam Mansbach. The recording is a hysterically funny adult storybook that captures an exhausted parent's attempt to put their kid to bed. It was initially released by Audible Studios in 2011. Jackson got involved after he brought the book with him on Late Night with David Letterman. Right after that the recording became a viral phenomenon. In fact, his performance is the most downloaded Audible Studios title of all time. It was an Audie finalist for Audiobook of the Year in 2012.

"I remember all those times when I did read to my daughter when she was that age and everybody tells you reading stories will put kids to sleep, but it never works. It didn’t in my house," said Samuel L. Jackson. "I did say “Go the F**k to sleep” to her a lot and I think at some point she would look at me when I would come into her room and she would say “go the f**k to sleep daddy?” and I would say “yeah, go the f**k to sleep.”

Audible’s mission is to establish literate listening as a core tool for anyone seeking to be more productive, better informed, or more thoughtfully entertained.
