Amazon/Audible is going to ruin me!

You have to buy the eBook from Amazon, and if it has a corresponding audio book you can buy it at a discounted rate.

Thanks - I haven't seen that. I wonder if it's available to UK customers? I shall investigate.

Never been a fan of librivox, I'm not into public domain stuff all that much, so this amazon/audible thing is awesome, but it's killing my wallet!! So much that I think it folded in on itself and somehow conjured up a padlock.

I prefer to read rather than listen to books. So, while a neat offer, it holds zero interest for me.

I don't know if it's been fixed but if you if you check out the Kindle Library book from Overdrive you are eligible for discounted Audible if there is one.

I have done this many times just to get a discount.

Heh the good things for me is that the books I like to listen to and the books I like to read don't cross over.

It still works as of last week. It's weird how some titles in a series are Whispersync compatible but others are not.

In some other Audible thread somewhere hereabouts I think I called the company evil. Somehow they keep taking my money! Especially with this Whispersync option.

I don't know if that's something that's meant to be fixed. I bought two books from the Song of Ice & Fire series because of the Overdrive ebooks... they got my money, right? I've gotten all of Diana Gabaldon's Whispersync compatible titles. (I'm sensing a serious series issue here!)
