I found out today that you can send books to people using Audible. You keep your book, but send them a copy of it. And they get to keep it. And you can send as many books as you want, but each person can only receive one free book. Audible really wants new members. They gave me 4 free credits plus two free promo books before I finally broke down and actually paid for a membership and credits.
I am not 100% sure if it works on existing members. But I think it does.
So, I guess if anyone wants to try it out, I have books 1 thru 6 of The Dark Tower, plus 3 free books from promos. A collection of Drizzt Do'Urden stories narrated by the likes of Ice-T, Weird Al, Sean Astin; A version of Sleepy Hollow, I forget which. I think it was from a promo for the TV series. And one that is currently still an active promo.
Using code "shadows" or was it "shadow"... I forget, You can get a book called Alien: Out of the Shadows. I guess it's because of the new movie. It's a short story though. Only 4 hours long.
The audio books are a bit pricey, and you only get 1 credit (book) for your 15 dollars each month. But I did also find out yesterday that Amazon gives discounts on the Audio version for buying the Kindle version on many books. So Dark Tower VI was 42 dollars without a membership. 27 dollars with a membership, but only 13 dollars if you bought it along side the 9 dollar Kindle version. Which I used Bing Rewards Amazon gift cards to pay for, and ended up getting Dark Tower VI for 17 dollars Instead of 27 or 42.
These books are making my cross country work trips a little less boring now.
