Calling all lovers of funny things. My most recent audiobook, Diary of an Expectant Father, has just overtaken Ellen DeGeneres on the Audible UK best-sellers list for Comedy! In celebration of this momentous achievement, I’ve got a two-for-one giveaway for you.

If you’d like to bag yourself a free copy of Diary of an Expectant Father AND its sequel, Diary of a Hapless Father, leave a comment below (congratulating me on ousting the great and powerful E.D.), then shoot me a private message with your audible email address as well as your preferred audible site (.com, or

The books follow Graham Peterson – a down on his luck twenty-something who is faced with becoming a father for the first time whilst struggling with a terrible job, overbearing parents, and a best friend whose idea of a good time is two bottles of Port down at the local pub.

If you’re a fan of Adrian Mole and other British Comedy, you’re sure to love the Diary of a Father series.

Claude (claudecf) | 6 comments I am so sorry, because I'll never know how good this is. Although I have been able to download the audiobooks, iTunes won't let me read either. I suppose it's because I'm in France. Goodreads may be international, but iTunes and audible don't seem to be.
Thanks for the try though!

Will Watt | 13 comments Thank you everyone for all the interest - I've run out of .com codes, but should have some more on Monday. I'll update this when I know.

Claude - have you tried listening in the audible web player? Or on the mobile app on your iPhone?

Warm regards

Claude (claudecf) | 6 comments I can only get it on my iPhone through iTunes and it won't accept my password. I have a Mac, therefore there is no app for audible, it is supposed to work with iTunes, but iTunes tells me my password is not right... Maybe you could give my files to somebody else.

Justin (justinswapp) | 62 comments Claude - You can stream through on your mac (no need for an app.) In other words, you can listen to anything in your audible library right there on the audible website.

Claude (claudecf) | 6 comments Justin, thanks for the tip! I feel stupid not even thinking about this!
Thanks again

Justin (justinswapp) | 62 comments Don't feel that way. Audible has been so good about creating apps and the like, it would be easy for anyone to over look.

Trish (trishga) | 212 comments I would love to listen to this book, Will, but can't find your email. Here's my info:, US site.

Will Watt | 13 comments Hiya All

My code drought is over, so I've caught up with my backlog from last week. I have around 10 codes remaining before I'm done for good.

Claude - I hope you managed to listen along from the web player.

Justin - Thank you for your help! Do let me know if you'd like a free copy.

Trish - I've sent you some copies, but you may wish to edit your last message and delete your email address so that nobody else jumps on it and starts using it!

Happy Monday, y'all!
