This offer is from last year. monkey screwed up when he posted it. I need to have a chat with him. I think a few days without bananas might get his mind back on things

Hi Tubemonkey

I think it was a link to last year's Black Friday sale that never got deleted (Black Friday fell on 23 November last year, whereas 23rd November this year is a Saturday). From a UK bargain site I use (not sure if I can name it or not on here) they contacted Audible and they know nothing about it. It looks like a non starter.

I was disappointed as I had planned to make a lot of purchases from the sale.

Nick.

Ah, so it is, in fact, one that can be liberated? OK, I can live with that. Just not willing to deal with anything that has a DRM we can't handle.

Unless the 'monkey is smarter than me (which is possible) you have to have the right software to liberate it. It isn't as simple as copying the files off of your HD. It looks like it uses the same DRM for downloaded YouTube videos.

Thanks; and you're right, it was last year's offer. I don't remember where I spotted it, but I definitely slipped up by not paying attention.

Sorry for getting your hopes up. Maybe this year's sale will be just as good. Stay tuned for the announcement.

BTW, you can mention the names of other sites when it's appropriate for the conversation.

I've never attempted it with books on the Volumes app, so I had no idea how difficult it would be to do so. From skinmaan's response, it looks to be a pain and something I'm not willing to do.

Books loaded using the Volumes app are stored locally on that device and no where else, hence the reason why deleting the app also deletes your only copy of the book. That's very lame. If you want this book on multiple devices, you'll need to download it directly to each device. That also means there's no syncing between devices.

Bottom line: consider it a one-time loan. Then you won't care about losing the book if you delete the app.

monkey is not smarter and monkey did not know this. Thanks for the information.

So far, I have the app on two devices and each device has a different book.

I have to say, I didn't realize just how bad the Volumes app is. Shame on PRH for crippling the app. I certainly wouldn't pay real money for downloading any books to it.
