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
You Paid: $54.45
$5 each is nuts, these usually retail at like $15 to $40 per copy, and I was always happy to pay that much. If you're ever thinking of doing the audio thing, this is the time to get started.
It's $7.95 to join Audible and that gets you any book in their catalog for free. This sale is absolutely crazy and wonderful, you really should take advantage of it. You could grab 5-10 audiobooks for 25 to 50 dollars... that's nuts. There's some really good ones in there too besides what I got - I already own half of the ones on sale.
Strongly recommended -
This is an awesome deal and I would take it up in a second if the provided DRM free ebooks. As it is, I can't use their products on Linux or my particular MP3 player.
Instead I use learnoutloud.com. It's more expensive, and I don't get access to audible's great deal, but at least I can listen to their books!
