Thanks, added to my library as well. Interesting as I can't seem to find it by searching on Audible... Was this a special restricted release?

Thanks, alee, got it!

Makes me feel a bit better about the $27.97 I paid them last night for The Time-Traveler's Wife! (That title by Audrey Niffenegger isn't available for e-readers.)

As you might infer from the URL, it was promoted on Twitter. I read about it in a retweet by @suvudu.

It will be interesting to hear someone pronounce "Halrloprillar."

That's great! Thanks for the tip! I was just looking for Ringworld in ebook format, and couldn't find it.

I think of Ringworld as one of those novels everyone has read, and rightly so. But when I recently asked a class of students in an SF writing class at MIT who had read Ringworld, they all looked blank. Not one of them had read it. I was amazed, and a little appalled. Apparently it's a generational thing. I'll have to let them know about this. (Though they're in the throes of exams right now. I wonder how long this will be available.)

Little correction, it wasn't promoted in twitter, it is a special promotion offered by audible to Leo Laporte of TWiT (This Week In Tech), and it's been mentioned in several twits at http://www.twit.tv

Just clearing up, as I am a fan of the twit network and I've heard the promotion. Sorry I didn't bring it up myself but I forgot about it until alee brought it up.
