Prices changed?
Went to gift and prices aren't sowing @ $4.95 for me

jodyk23 11-28-2011 11:08 AM

Showed at $4.95 once it was added to cart and I had signed in.

mardeebo 11-28-2011 04:46 PM

FWIW, I enjoyed the following books (print versions)

The Memory of Running
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Do these audio-books work on the e-readers? I bought the Kindle Keyboard for my mom and thought I'd gift some of these to her.

sl33 11-29-2011 09:54 AM

I highly recommend "I Claudius", if you're interested in that sort of stuff.

thickest_hawaii 11-29-2011 09:54 AM

These are all free at your local library. Most libraries have an online audiobook collection that you can download for free.

0DJIAN 11-29-2011 10:01 AM

What libraries? I love listening to books in my car.

Yes, these should work on Kindle.

Ditto to the above comment.
I initially signed up for the audible.com but I cancelled my account before the 30-day cancellation policy because I found that my local library carries great amount of audiobooks and I often find books that audible charges over $10 for free (the enhanced audio version are also available at libraries).

Only disadvantage to library audiobook I found so far is that there can be a wait-list for popular/new books. But there are always other books that are available and look interesting so I have had no problem getting audiobooks from library so far.

Most libraries. Google what's local for you. Residents of anywhere in NY state can become a member at NYC public library too and use their audiobooks.

Yeah, this is true, I'm sure. I signed up for audible to get the $100 credit on an ipod touch. I will definitely make sure that I check the online library first before using a credit on a free book. Are the narrators different between the library vs the audible versions? I've listened to some really horrible narrators.

I'm fairly impatient, so I figure the $80 investment I have in audible will be handy when I find a new book that's not available at the library.

Los Angeles Library has thousands of books that you can download on your ipod/phone for free. Yes you have to wait a few weeks for new releases but its free. Sometimes they even allow you to copy them to CD's. It is called e-media w/Overdrive
