For those of you interested, Sync's technical difficulties are fixed. If you still want "Antony and Cleopatra" (by William Shakespeare this time) it is now available in the same location.

Most strange. When I went to download A&C, I received a message saying that it was already downloaded. OverDrive shows I acquired it on the 19th, the day this round started.

The funny thing is, the book I downloaded that morning was the one Sync mistakenly posted and then quickly removed. Now that version is gone and the correct one is in its place.

So, who reached into my account and switched copies?

I don't understand - is there an "account" somewhere the books can be retrieved later?

Yep.

If you have the old version on your PC, rename the directory and you can play in any other MP3 player (you'll need to replace the cover image and rebuild the wax file, most likely).

Then, start overdrive again and tell it to download - it'll bring down that version as well (as far as I can tell, that's the only one that Overdrive will play, after that).

By account, tubemonkey meant the Overdrive Media Console? (I didn't get the first version - it was gone by the time I went to download - but I was curious about the mention of an "account"; thought I was missing out on something )

You also have an account at Overdrive (not that I have any idea how to access it), which seems to be created automatically (perhaps associated with the instance of the software on the computer/device).

Anyway - if you protected the old version, you can keep it and play it, but the console itself will only point to the new one, from what I can tell.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone By Laini Taylor Narrated by Khristine Hvam
Winner of the 2012 Audie Award for Best Fantasy Audiobook
Quote:
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

Apparently perfectly narrated, Winner of AudioFiles Earphones Award.
Quote:
‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times!’ Set before and during the French Revolution in the cities of Paris and London, A Tale of Two Cities tells the story of Dr. Manette’s release from imprisonment in the Bastille and his reunion with daughter, Lucie. A French aristocrat Darnay and English lawyer Carton compete in their love for Lucie and the ensuing tale plays out against the menacing backdrop of the French Revolution and the shadow of the guillotine.
