Are you still reading books with your eyes like a SUCKER!? Start living in the now and have someone else read the book directly into your ear holes. Audible is magic and everybody needs magic. Speaking of magic, getting these books for $7.95 has got to be the work of a wizard.
First things first, I'm sorry for calling you a sucker. I didn't mean it. I was just excited about the deal. These are the eight series available:
- Apprentice Adept by Piers Anthony
- Butcher's Boy by Thomas Perry
- John Rain by Barry Eisler
- The Modern Scholar by various authors
- Psy-Changeling by Nalini Singh
- Tall, Dark and Dangerous by Suzanne Brockmann
- Miles Vorkosigan by Lois McMaster Bujold
- My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking
I'd try and write something up to explain the sale but the fine folks over at Audible.com have already done so. This is the blurb for the sale.
The days for beach listening may be winding down, but it's always the season to discover a new series. This week we've got (count 'em) EIGHT outstanding series in our most popular categories on sale for just $7.95 each. From Piers Anthony's fantastical Apprentice Adept epic to Amanda Hocking's great teen saga, My Blood Approves, there are plenty of options for every type of listener. In time for back-to-school, The Modern Scholar series can help you brush up on your history, science, philosophy, and more. And if you're into whodunits, you've got two opportunities to score with Barry Eisler's John Rain and Thomas Perry's Butcher's Boy.
The one thing they didn't mention in that blurb is that there are 195 books on sale here. 137 of them are from the Modern Scholar series which is a non-fiction/educational series. Some of the fiction books are as much as $28 meaning you save about $20 per book! The Modern Scholar series is even better with prices reaching up towards $45 meaning you would save $38 per book. Fantastic!
Audible, as you may have realised, is one of the best thing's I've ever come across. I really cannot sing their praises enough. You will need a membership to take part in this deal but the memberships can be as low as $10 a year. That being said, I highly suggest getting a monthly membership, you will not regret it. You can get credits with 1 or two credits per month and generally one book costs one credit. Some bigger books are two credits.
