Second large sale from Audible this month.
Audible membership *not* required. But list won't sort by price until signed into Amazon account.
39 pages from classics to modern authors & that's just the $5 titles.

Sale ends 1/26/22.

fwiw my own "hidden gem" recommendation for the biography/rescue/animal/horse inclined might go to

The Eighty-Dollar Champion
Snowman, the Horse That Inspired a Nation
By: Elizabeth Letts
Narrated by: Arthur Morey
Length: 11 hrs and 22 mins

https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Ei...B2HF5FRR2G.


Particularly (but certainly not only) recommended for anyone who liked Secretariat's story. A seasoned trainer, Harry deLeyer literally bought Snowman directly off a slaughter truck. It was something in the way the horse looked at him he later said. And that was the improbable beginning that led to the storied careers of a legendary equestrian jumping team.

The nonfiction here includes some KILLER titles.

"The Master and His Emissary" is neuroscience/philosophy of mind/artistic call to action that proposes we've been looking at left-brain/right-brain through the lens of the left brain, and indeed our whole culture has gotten captivated by that left-brain analytic ability and has lost balance. Its thesis is a good deal richer than I can rightly express in a short review, since what you've probably heard about left/right split probably lacks nuance due to pop science (and this book explores that). This may interest you even if you're not into neuroscience (I can't guess, I am into it); its foundations in neuroscience are robust, but its discussion and conclusions seem to depend more on the sort of careful thinking required for philosophy and art history rather than on the modern science itself. I will listen to this again, and probably many more times.

"Spooky Action at a Distance" is an excellent introduction to the problems of quantum non-locality in modern physics, suitable as a primer but also adequate to keep my interest after having read very advanced works like "Time Reborn".

"What is Real" is similar in focus, but more daring; it takes Einstein's side to propose that there's something missing from quantum theory, more work to be done on the fundamentals. It's been a while since I've listened, and so I can't be sure what level of reading it requires, so read the reviews and make up your own mind. I can say that I read this and liked it, but there's also a growing number of other books that take a similar tactic, although none of them are in this sale so ... anyhow, it is genuinely good.

Those titles jumped out to me, and I either owned them already or bought them in this sale. And why not? This is essentially a 2-for-1 sale, but without the need to find an even number of books or even to have any credits left!

Audible $5 winter sale. Looks like about 780 audio books on sale for $5 each from Audible. It's been a little while since their last sale like this and there's not a tremendous amount that I'm interested in, but I did manage to pick up 3 new titles.

Sale ends January 26 2022, at 11:59 P.M. PT (US). Offer is available only to US consumers, is not transferable, and cannot be combined with any other offer. Sale titles may vary based on applicable membership type. Offer is not available from within the iOS version of the Audible app. Audible reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer at any time. If you violate any of these terms, the offer will be invalid.

Never really got into audio books, but I wanted to give it a shot. Anything good on this list, fiction or non-fiction.

It took me a minute to appreciate audiobooks. I had to start with small sessions. I'm pretty hooked now though. Since don't have to give my undivided attention to reading, I can get thru so many more titles. I actually have to listen while I'm doing something though. Otherwise it tends to read me to sleep just like when I was little. ")

The nonfiction here includes some KILLER titles. Someone else will have to point out the good fiction, I think I bought one but don't remember what it was.

"The Master and His Emissary" is neuroscience/philosophy of mind/artistic call to action that proposes we've been looking at left-brain/right-brain through the lens of the left brain, and indeed our whole culture has gotten captivated by that left-brain analytic ability and has lost balance. Its thesis is a good deal richer than I can rightly express in a short review, since what you've probably heard about left/right split probably lacks nuance due to pop science (and this book explores that). This may interest you even if you're not into neuroscience (I can't guess, I am into it); its foundations in neuroscience are robust, but its discussion and conclusions seem to depend more on the sort of careful thinking required for philosophy and art history rather than on the modern science itself. I will listen to this again, and probably many more times. It's one of the top books I've read.

"Spooky Action at a Distance" is an excellent introduction to the problems of quantum non-locality in modern physics, suitable as a primer but also adequate to keep my interest after having read very advanced works like "Time Reborn". This and the next book are similar, but this book focuses less on taking the road less travelled and more on helping the reader focus on the actual problem.

"What is Real" is more daring; it takes Einstein's side to propose that there's something missing from quantum theory, more work to be done on the fundamentals. It's been a while since I've listened, and so I can't be sure what level of reading it requires, so read the reviews and make up your own mind. I can say that I read this and liked it, but there's also a growing number of other books that take a similar tactic, although none of them are in this sale so ... anyhow, it is genuinely good, and is part of a widespread correction in modern physics which for a long time took only one side on the debate between Einstein and Bohr (in case you don't know, they took Bohr's side, the philosophical view called "the Copenhagen Interpretation", to the extent that grad students would lose their post and all chance to continue their degree for even trying to do research into the fundamentals). Other books along the same lines include "Lost in Math", "The Trouble with Physics," and "Einstein's Unfinished Revolution." Also check out Sabine Hossenfelder's youtube channel.

Those titles jumped out to me, and I either owned them already or bought them in this sale. And why not? This is essentially a 2-for-1 sale, but without the need to find an even number of books or even to have any credits left!

I really like them in the car. Also when my kids are watching TV.

This won't work for everyone, but audiobooks didn't work for me till I sped them up. I listen on 1.5 to 2x now and it's so much better because it keeps my attention 100%.

I don't know how to explain it, but the faster reading has stopped my mind from wandering while listening. Couple that with doing it while I do household chores and I've started looking forward to the dishes, haha
