Quote:
First Comes Love (publisher's website)

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A pair of sisters find themselves at a crossroads in this dazzling new novel from the author of Something Borrowed, Where We Belong, and The One & Only. First Comes Love is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart—wherever that may lead.

Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious, relationship. Josie was impulsive, spirited, and outgoing, Meredith hardworking, thoughtful, and reserved. When tragedy strikes, their delicate bond splinters.

Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late thirties, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single—and this close to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother—a feeling that is heightened when her ex-boyfriend’s daughter is assigned to her class. Determined to have the future she’s always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.

On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she’s married to a wonderful man, and together they’re raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired.

As the anniversary of their tragedy looms, and painful secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them but also come to terms with their own choices. In their journey toward understanding and forgiveness, both sisters discover that they need each other more than they knew—and that in the search for true happiness, love always comes first.

Okay, okay. There was a hurricane that came right through this area. That's my excuse now.*

They're not for everyone. Different strokes for different folks, and all that.

I also recently finished listening to a TGC course about the brain. The instructor is a woman. She mentioned two or three (or more) times that she was also an opera singer. She also mentioned several times how she likes to drink wine. I wonder if it could be the same course as you listened to. I thought that it was great, but it was very L O N G.

TGC does have a policy of refunding your money (or maybe it's to let you make an exchange), if you don't like a course ("if you're ever unhappy with a course," or something to that effect). Why don't you use that policy to return the courses that you don't like? Unfortunately, the previews are probably too short to give you a good feel for how well that you would like the full versions.

I didn't think about the credit aspect, but it's probably because I'm not a credit member and rarely have been one in the past.

I haven't noticed that, but I haven't been checking, either. I got so ticked off with the "improvements" that FreeGal made recently, that I've gotten disgusted with the whole digital thing through libraries, and haven't checked, recently, either of the library systems with which I have privileges.

It seems that libraries have traditionally favored Recorded Books over other lecture-type recordings. They might cheaper for libraries to acquire, I dunno. RB audios are good, and I've bought quite a few of them, too, but I think that the lecturers are not quite up to the level of TGC's. On the other hand, Recorded Books has audio on subjects that TGC doesn't seem to cover.

Their streaming service seems pretty desperate for customers. It started out pretty expensive, but can now be had for 10 bucks a month if you but in 3 month blocks. Their emails smack a bit of desperation, reminding me of some of the magazine offers I get in the mail.
I think that their long-term prospects are good. Their typical sales (which, as you might have implied, are very often) still leave the price of the courses pretty high. I think that relatively few people are as price-conscious as most of us on this thread are, who I think that, for the most part, are willing to delay gratification until the price of something gets very low.

Your observation about the streaming service may be spot-on.

If you want more frequent communication from TGC, you can always sign up for their snail mail sales announcements. ha

Thanks for the heads up. I read the first book, and found it okay, but not great, mostly due to really annoying characters and spotty world building. But interesting enough to want to read the sequel, so I'll pick up the one today, and the second tomorrow.

I logged in to see if I had the Kindle version and I do. No desire to buy the audio.
