I never want a Daily Deal. Ever. And yet, today, not only do I want both the Audible and Downpour selections, the Audible one was even on my wishlist!

Thanks, tm! I had stopped checking the websites for the daily deals long ago, as it seemed so unproductive.

YW

...and it mostly is unproductive, but every now and then, a blue moon rises.

Libro.fm--Two CURRENT Deals/Bargains.

All right, it's confession time. You never think about libro.fm, do you? That is except, perhaps, for the one time during the year when they have their yearly special promotion.

Well, there are a couple of deals/bargains from libro.fm, right now, that I want to tell you about. I don't remember either one of these being mentioned before.

First, I should mention to the uninitiated that libro.fm is a company or service that allows independent bookstores, with their limited resources, to get into the act of selling audiobooks like the big boys do.

Here are the deals/bargains:
#1--Libro.fm's ongoing membership plan. At least they seem to consider it a deal/bargain. It largely runs along the lines of the plans of Audible, Audiobooks.com, Kobo, ad infinitum. Here are the details of the plan:
- Receive 3 audiobook credits for $14.99, during your first month of membership.
- After your first month, you'll pay for one audiobook per month.
- Get 30% off additional audiobooks, gifts included.
- Pause or cancel your account at any time, and keep your audiobooks.
- Choose the independent bookstore that you wish to support. Powell's City of Books (located on the left coast, I think) seems to be the 800-pound gorilla in the room right now (sorry, tubemonkey, but you don't seem to have the quite the same gravitas, right now; however, from little monkeys do big gorillas grow. ).
- Lots more that seem worth checking out. There seem to be some definite advantages over, say, Audible's plan.

Somewhere on Libro.fm's website (I can't find it now), they claim to offer over 125,000 audiobooks.

#2--Libro.fm currently has a sale on 120 audiobooks going on. Frankly, many of the prices don't seem to be anything special; however, there are many which do--$5.00 or so seems to be a common price point.

Think you might want to check out the sale? Well, you've first got to select the indie bookstore that you wish to support; they are listed by state. Then, navigate to this webpage.

I do not know how frequently that they have this kind of sale.

BTW--about 2/3 of the way down the screen on the aforementioned webpage, you will see a banner(?) ad that offers "20% off your first purchase," if you'll "sign up for audiobook recommendations." I assume that that is applicable after you sign up for a membership and that it cannot go toward your first month's membership charge of $14.99. I suspect, though, that it will "stack" on the 30% that you can get off of any audiobook, after you've become a member.

Downpour -- Rental of the Week -- exp 20 May
  • $1.99 -- Alien: Covenant -- Alan Dean Foster/ Tom Taylorson --> 9.0 hrs --> sci-fi
Quote:
Alien Series (book 1)

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien adventure. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. But it is actually a dark, dangerous world.
Rental FAQ
  • Spoiler:
    Quote:
    When does my rental period begin?

    Your rental timer will begin counting down when you first initiate the download on your device or 10 days after purchase, whichever comes first.
    Quote:
    How long can I listen to a title?

    All digital rentals provide a minimum of 30 days to listen to a book from the time you initiate your first download. With some of our longer books, such as Atlas Shrugged (63hrs), we extend the listening period to 60 days. You do have the option of purchasing a 5, 10, or 20 day extension after you have made your rental purchase.
    Quote:
    How many times can I listen to my rental?

    You may listen to a rental as many times as you would like until it expires.
    Quote:
    Can I extend my rental time period?

    Once you are logged into your Downpour.com account, you can purchase a time extension for any of your previous rentals via THIS link. After clicking “Extend Rental,” you have the option of purchasing a 5-day ($1.95), 10-day ($2.95) or 20-day ($4.95) extension. If your rental has not yet expired, the purchased time will be added onto your rental. (Example: if your rental has one day remaining, and you purchase a five-day extension, you will now have six days total before your rental expires.) If your rental has already expired, the extension will allow you to listen to your book again for the amount of time purchased.
    Quote:
    Can I have the same rental on more than one device?

    You may listen to your audiobook rental on as many personal devices as you own. Your rental time will be synced across all devices on which you have installed the Downpour app.

FREE -- Meet the Sky -- McCall Hoyle/ Morgan Fairbanks -- 6.0 hrs -- friendship
Quote:
From award-winning author McCall Hoyle comes a new young adult novel, Meet the Sky, a story of love, letting go, and the unstoppable power of nature. It all started with the accident. The one that caused Sophie’s dad to walk out of her life. The one that left Sophie’s older sister, Meredith, barely able to walk at all. With nothing but pain in her past, all Sophie wants is to plan for the future—keep the family business running, get accepted to veterinary school, and protect her mom and sister from another disaster. But when a hurricane forms off the coast of North Carolina’s Outer Banks and heads right toward their island, Sophie realizes nature is one thing she can’t control. After she gets separated from her family during the evacuation, Sophie finds herself trapped on the island with the last person she’d have chosen—the reckless and wild Finn Sanders, who broke her heart freshman year. As they struggle to find safety, Sophie learns that Finn has suffered his own heartbreak; but instead of playing it safe, Finn’s become the kind of guy who goes surfing in the eye of the hurricane. He may be the perfect person to remind Sophie how to embrace life again, but only if their newfound friendship can survive the storm.

This tale, beloved by children and adults everywhere, follows Alice as she falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world, where she meets The Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat-each character more eccentric than the last.

Lewis Carroll has created one of the most famous and fantastic novels of all time. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the fantasy genre.

Get a FREE Mars Hill Audio Lecture Every Day.

In making this post on this particular thread, I'm keeping in mind the MobileRead rule that "media comes before subject." If the freebie below was an ebook, it would belong on the "Christian Interest" thread.

Hear a new, free streaming audio "conversation" (lecture) from Mars Hill Audio every day. You also can download each day's lecture, free. I'll give you information about how to do either or both, in a moment.

I've pulled some quotes from Mars Hill Audio's website, describing their purpose and work:
The conventional beliefs and practices of contemporary culture present a range of challenges to Christians striving to be faithful to their Lord. Some of these challenges are obvious, even if knowing how to meet them is perplexing. Others are concealed and become apparent only with the discipline of discerning and patient reflection . . . . Our conversation partners are typically the authors of perceptive books that describe in some detail aspects of cultural history, theological themes with cultural consequences, or how cultural practices and artifacts convey beliefs and dispositions.

The lectures are philosophical, and on fairly narrow subjects, at that. And, to put it plainly, they will be a little difficult for the non-philosophically inclined person to understand.

Again, each day's lecture is free. Navigate to Mars Hill Audio's homepage--the audio du jour will be in grayed-out print near the top of the page. However, if you want one that you have missed, you can still get it, but at a charge. While you apparently cannot download a lecture from Mars Hill Audio's website, you can do that, and for free, using the also free app that they offer (for some reason, I wasn't able to make a link to the webpage, that worked; I suggest that you navigate to the webpage, from the homepage. Click on "MHA App" near the bottom of the screen, on the lefthand side, at that webpage).

I listened to the first part of today's lecture, "Apologetics beyond C.S. Lewis," given by Alison Milbank, and think that it is very good.

I don't know for sure what time of day the lectures change over, but I suspect that it is midnight EDT.

CORRECTION: It appears that the audiobook does not change on a daily basis. I'm not sure how or where I got the idea that it does. Anyway, my apologies.
