Audible Unveils May 2017 ‘2 for 1’ sale

I’ve been working on getting things ready to take over as the host of the Talking Audiobooks podcast (see my previous post if you don’t know what I’m talking about). Most of what I have been doing has been related to social media but I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly I want to do on the show.
One question that I am still debating is how best to talk about sales that companies such as Audible have from time to time. This is an interesting question because unlike other things I might want to discuss on the show, these are more time sensative. A sale may last a few days and so it wouldn’t be helpful to anyone if I did an audio segment talking about a sale but it wasn’t published until the sale was over.
I have some ideas on how to handle this problem but I’m still trying certain things. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. For now though, and more than likely as things continue, I am still going to write about sales on this blog. Which finally brings me to the point of today’s post. Audible.com is having a 2 for 1 sale for members.

Audible Offers ‘Born a Crime’ By Trevor Noah for Free

One of the things I talked about in my interview on the Talking Audiobooks Podcast is how to get a lot of audiobooks for very little money and that included being on the lookout for free books. As usual, I try to let readers of my blog know when a book is available for free and leave it up to you to decide if it is something you are interested in. To me, the most important thing is making sure the information is available.

The Death of WCW Audiobook Now Available~!

Today ended up being a great day. Was it a great day because I finally broke down and ordered the authentic scale ring and classic blue steel cage sets I’ve been wanting for a year? No, although I did do that and I ordered a Monday Nitro ring skirt and ring mat and some Black Ring Ropes to go with it.
Was it a great day because my pre-order of ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’ hit iTunes complete with audio description track? Well, I haven’t watched the movie yet but even if I like it a bunch I don’t think that’s going to be enough to make today a great day.
Was it a good day because of the dinner I had? I had franks and beans and chocolate ice cream. I enjoy both of those things but not so much that they can make a day great. What about the fact I made my way through most of season 7 and season 8 of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ in glorious surround sound thanks to the sound bar I bought for my living room TV recently? Well, that was fun enough and I did have some laughs but there was also a time when I was a little bored, so we’ll say no.
