Not sure if this will help the process along, but here is a list some audiobooks I bought for my husband (mostly science fiction or fantasy) because they were mentioned or recommended on MobileRead. I haven't provided links since I presume people who would want to have any of these as their one and only free transfer would already be aware of the book or have it on a wishlist. PM me if you want one.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania
by Erik Lawson (non-fiction)
11-22-63 by Stephen King
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, also the second book
Levianthan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
The Golem and the Jinni Helene Wecker
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Despite the name, don't think of it as "sending," think of it as "suggesting."
You, and any member, can suggest as much as you want to anyone.
You, and any member, can choose exactly ONE book that is suggested to you to get for free.

WARNING -- There's a discussion going on in the Audiobook Deals thread about some very misleading promos involving the "Send this Book" feature. Start with post 1374:

EDIT: Tom has amended his blog post to include the following statement (in bold below). I appreciate the update and hope this avoids any confusion from here on out - thanks

Quote:
Warning Concerning Free Audiobooks from Authors

Several authors/narrators are promoting free audiobooks during the June Is Audiobook Month campaign, claiming that they're working in conjunction with Audible to give you one of their audiobooks for free.

What you're not being told is that if you accept this offer, you're using up your one and only free selection from the Send this Book (aka OneBook) feature.

This is flat out misrepresentation, if not worse! So be wary before accepting any book from an author for review that doesn't come with a code or as a gift.

Here is one such offer from Tom Abrahams. Offers are also being cross posted all over Facebook.

Quote:
"FREE AUDIOBOOKS...SERIOUSLY...FREE
There isn't much that's free in this world. But this month, AUDIOBOOK MONTH, fantastic narrator and talented audiobook producer Kevin Pierce is working in conjunction with Audible to give you one free audiobook. THIS IS A PART OF AUDIBLE'S NEW SEND THIS BOOK FEATURE. It allows you to choose one FREE book from a friend without joining Audible's monthly service.

You can pick any of the books listed below. All of them are narrated by Kevin and all of them are written by wonderfully talented authors.

Pick one by clicking on the cover you like. Enjoy. Then please leave a review.

And if you haven't gotten a chance, please check out my newly redesigned website.

Happy audiobook month."

My first inclination was to think Audible is blameless here, but what kind of system did they set up that is so easily scammed by these lowlifes?

If anyone wants it I have The Hating Game by Sally Thorne available. I wasted a credit on it but maybe someone out there is interested in it.

The narrator is very good.

Audible.com (US) only carries the German version. The English version is geo-restricted.

Send a book has been available to me for several months. I can access it through the iOS app and each time I finish a book I get a prompt asking me if I want to send it to a friend. Looks like their website needs an update.

You don't list a location, so I can only assume you are implying that you don't live in the US?

Anyway...the ability to send a recommendation is not restricted to the US, but the program for the recipient to get one recommended book for free is. Or was. Pretty sure still is.
