We noticed you’re subscribed to our Daily Deals and wanted to let you know that as of October 1, these deals are becoming a benefit just for members.

I wouldn't mind this if the Daily Deals were more to my taste; as it is, I never buy them. But if Audible started offering decent selections even occasionally, it would be a reason to stay a member. As it is, once my current promotional membership expires I'll be out again, until the next promotion that is available to me. I'll miss the Daily Deals not at all.

I don't think I've ever purchased a Daily Deal, so I won't miss it one bit.

Once or twice, but I'm not giving up my membership, so don't have anything to worry about.

I wonder if the next shoe to drop at Audible will be Whispersync pricing becoming a members-only perk.

My yearly membership runs through March, at which time I'll probably take a breather till there's a good promo offer.

I'm in pretty much the same boat. If they drop whispersync pricing for non-members I'll have absolutely no reason to look at Audible when my yearly expires.

I don't know why I bother looking at daily deals. I haven't bought more than two or three in the last two years. I guess hope springs eternal.

The consensus, regarding the Daily Deal change, seems to be "It's no big deal--I rarely buy any of them anyway" I actually have bought quite a few Daily Deal audiobooks, myself. Say, about one per month. And I seriously consider buying others. Different strokes for different folks.

So, that's why I got frosted when I read the letter. What will I do now? I dunno. Procrastination _on things like this_ tends to work out well for me.

I’ve probably bought at least 40 daily deals, although I usually don’t even look at them if they’re above $2.95.

I've bought a handful, usually Lifetime-movie-type suspense books that aren't worth a credit but are fun nevertheless when I want something mindless.

Penguin Random House -- Monthly Offer -- exp 27 Sep @ 11:59 AM ET
  • FREE -- Frankenstein -- Mary Shelley/ Jim Weiss --> 10.8 hrs --> horror
Quote:
Mark your calendars: our next free audiobook download starts Tuesday, September 25, at noon EST! But what book will it be?

Maybe you can guess: this iconic novel is celebrating its 200th birthday this year – and is still widely read to this day. (Fans anticipating Kiersten White’s latest novel may especially interested… stay tuned!)

Offer ends on Thursday, September 27th at 11:59 AM ET. Happy listening!
Quote:
Frankenstein (publisher's website)

Victor Frankenstein learns the secret of producing life, and so, by putting together parts of various corpses, he creates the Frankenstein monster. The monster is huge and disformed, but he means no harm to anyone--until constant ill treatment drives him to murder and revenge. This version of Mary Shelley's long-standing masterpiece easily captures the sadness and horror of the original.

Nice, thanks! Good one to read in October.

The Downpour "steal" is:

John Woman By Walter Mosley
Read by Dion Graham
$3.95

"An Oprah’s Book Club Selection
A Booklist Pick of Best New Books of the Week"
“A smart sly novel of ideas…Defying genre, Mosley’s latest novel is much like his eponymous hero: speculative, brilliant and wildly original.” —National Book Review
