Before I jump on this deal, have I understood correctly that these audiobooks are DRM free? I have way too many devices I use for listening to books and music, restrictive DRM makes the files difficult to use.

You do need the Overdrive Media Console program to download these like with the library, but there is no expiry or any sort of DRM on these MP3 audiobooks. Almost all devices can use MP3 files.

That's okay, I already have OverDrive for library books. And all my gadgets can do mp3, so that part is covered. Thanks!

This week no international restrictions. So your computer doesn't need to go for a short holiday in the USA

I can definitely recommend The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud (the ebook, anyway, haven't listened to the audiobook, yet). Better than Harry Potter, IMO, and I've got the second in the series on my reader for 'very soon'

It's a trilogy plus series; I wasn't paying attention. At least the audiobooks are available in my libraries. At 13+ hours, I'll save it for a rainy weekend.

The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County -- “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” is a wild yarn involving a case of mistaken identity, a gambler who’d bet on anything, and a very unusual frog named Daniel Webster. First published in 1865, the tale was immensely popular, and in 1867 an expanded version was published with 26 additional short stories, told as only Mark Twain could tell them.

Cleopatra’s Moon -- Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony–the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, and when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she’s ever loved.
Quote:
Antony & Cleopatra -- The twin empires of Egypt and Rome mingle and clash in this towering tragedy. Impulsiveness, passion, mistaken identity, and dark humor all color the fascinating dalliance between Antony and Cleopatra, the larger-than-life pair at the center of Shakespeare’s play.

Those that downloaded early received Colleen McCullough's novel Antony & Cleopatra instead of the BBC Radio dramatization. That choice is now disabled. Hopefully they will fix and add back the correct one to download later this week.

I noticed that after I started the download. It didn't take Sync very long to realize they had the wrong book up before they pulled it.

I'm surprised the correct one still isn't up yet.
