Meh, it's not that important. Feel free to report it for deletion but I won't bother making a thread about it.

It varies. Some are made immediately into Audiobooks if it's a really a popular book. Some you have to wait for. It's all up to the publisher really.

Authors all the time say on Facebook to let the publisher know you want a Audio version. Now Amazon has a nifty new feature you can do just that.

So to answer the questions. The new Stephanie Plum novel was released in Audio at the same time as the book. So if it's a popular book you have a better chance for them to be released at the same time.

There will be a book icon with headphones and it says.

Thanks, I appreciate the info. When I tried accessing it as I was doing the list, it wanted me to log in with an account I don't have. Evidently I was using a wrong link.

AmblingBooks has a lot of audio books discounted at $6,99. Unfortunately, many of these are not available for me due to georestrictions, but someone else might find the sale useful:

Science Fiction

Fantasy

Romance

You can also find some discounted books in the non-fiction genre.

Just to mention that I haven't bought anything from AmblingBooks, actually, but I downloaded their Android app some time ago and I had to register. I learned about the sale from their e-mail.
