David Sven (gorro) | 1582 comments Just noticed Storm Front is going for $2.95 today on Audible if anyone is looking to get into Jim Butcher's Dresden series

Igor (igork) | 105 comments Thank you sir! Was really interested about the series and this just helped a lot!

Micah (onemorebaker) | 1071 comments They have a daily e-mail that anybody can get on to grab their daily deals. Doesn't seem to be a specific site to go to though.

Matthew (matthewdl) | 341 comments Thanks for the tip! Just purchased it; now all I have to do is find my ipod...

They normally display it on their homepage in the top left hand corner - that's on the Australian/UK site anyway

edit: Except when they don't. Like today.

Dave Packard | 146 comments Found it on the "Account Details" page... under preferences - "Manage Daily Email Subscription"...

But... "Really fine print: We're sorry, but at this time, this email is only for US and Canada customers."


message 7: by David Sven (new)

David Sven (gorro) | 1582 comments I would still try to subscribe if you aren't in US or Canada. I'm in Australia and they still send me the email. And it should still pop up on the home page. Every now and then it disappears but it's there most the time in the top left hand corner


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1889 comments Nothing of the sort on the UK site, at least, not anywhere I can find, and I've checked all the suggested places. Such is the usual way of it for us none US folk, though. At least Australia seems to be getting it. :)


message 9: by David Sven (new)

David Sven (gorro) | 1582 comments That's weird. We normally get stuff similar to the UK site. You can try the link to today's daily deal and see if you get it for the cheaper price


Today it's Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World for $4.95
http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=hp_r1_d...


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1889 comments Ha, too late for yesterday in any case, but since the link says audible.com, it won't help with the UK site, right? *confused*

But it's cool. I have a credit a month subscription and little listening time, so special offers aren't much of an incentive to me; I'm more tempted by expensive books so I can get my money's worth. :)


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1889 comments Yeah, as I say, the link takes me to audible.com. Do Australians just use the American site or something?

Incidentally, that book is priced at £14.00 on the UK site.

I think we must use the American site - but access to certain content is different depending on the IP


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1889 comments Ah, okay, yeah, in England there is Audible.co.uk

The .com site requires a credit card registered to an American address.

I use the American site though I live in Denmark. I have to use amazon.com as well for Kindle books, though I had to buy the Kindle from the UK site + it recommends me to buy items from there when I go to the .com site. In short: I haven't encountered that problem :)


message 16: by Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth (last edited Sep 07, 2013 01:39PM) (new)

Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1889 comments Okay, interesting. In that case, perhaps it is just users from the uk that need a credit card registered to a US address? How strange! I'd love to buy from .com, as the English site doesn't have the Old Man's War books, but such is life.

Edit: Or else maybe it has changed recently> Or the above applies only to subscriptions? These things have only just occurred to me.

Sorry, just thought somebody should acknowledge that.

Michele | 1154 comments Stephen King's Doctor Sleep is the deal today.


message 26: by Michele (new)

Michele | 1154 comments Oh I totally got that wrong sorry sorry. Audible app shows the new King book and then the daily deal banner is just below and I combined them in my head.


message 27: by Micah (new)

Micah (onemorebaker) | 1071 comments It was a 50 shades of Grey rip off today. Not a deal at any price in my opinion but I also have crappy taste.

Oooh, another book on my to-read list, I may as well grab it! Thanks for the heads up. :)

Doctordalek I can't believe I just found this thread. I have missed out on some incredible stuff! Today's daily deal is The Wizard of Oz, read by Anne Hathaway. It can be all yours for a cool buck ninety-five.

I'd had that one in my wish list anyways. Should be good when I get around to it. I have never read the original story.

Damnit. I didn't need that, but I bought it anyways.

My family just listened to this on a road trip this summer. It was as good then as it was when I read it at 10 years old (30 now).

I couldn't get into the Audible version of this. Watching LoTR has set all the characters' voices in my head and they were too different to the Audible version. I swapped it out for the kindle version instead.

I haven't tried that no. I see they do have the original BBC versions on Audible as well for both Hobbit and LoTR

That was a great book and a great reading of it. It is also the Stephen King Fan's group monthly pick this month.

AndrewP (andrewca) | 2501 comments Picked up "The Road" as it's been on my radar for some time now. Thanks guys :)
