Audible doing the awesome $5 thing again

I love Audible. They get it.

They're doing the $5 book sale thing again, so I'm basically copying my "Amazing. I just bought 32 audiobooks for $158" post from a few months ago here.

If you're a reader and audiobook person at all, then this might be the best sale you've ever seen. Audible just announced 200+ titles for $4.95 each. There's some good ones in there, too.

Last time, I got 32 of them. Most of those are on sale again, I just found 11 more I like and bought them for $55 -

I, Claudius $4.95 Charlie Wilson's War: The Extraordinary Story of the Largest Covert Operation in History $4.95 Mere Christianity $4.95 The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable $4.95 Master and Commander: Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 1 $4.95 Blue Ocean Strategy: How to Create Uncontested Market Space and Make Competition Irrelevant $4.95 Seven Events That Made America America: And Proved That the Founding Fathers Were Right All Along $4.95 A Confederacy of Dunces $4.95 The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral - and How It Changed the American West $4.95 The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, The Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World $4.95 The Free World $4.95

Want to Learn Japanese History? Start with Sengoku

On The Best of Sett

Hi Sebastian

Happy new year!

I am hoping you would share your resources for your reading on Japanese history. Book titles and/or urls would be very helpful.


I got that a week ago, and I kind of sat there staring at the email. Japanese history is some of the most confusing to start to learn, because different elements of Japanese history and culture all play on and influence each other. I could run you through the military history of Japan from The Battle of Okehazama to Sekigahara to the Boshin War, from there into Dai Nippon Tekoku Era, from there into defeat and the Occupation under McArthur, and then we could do a little post-war history.
