Free/Bargain Audiobook deals

Figured this might be a worthwhile thread.

I've been collecting audible audiobooks for the last couple years, great for my work commute. I don't think I've ever paid the normal $15 monthly membership fee (which gives you one book a month), but find membership deals from free to maybe $5 a month.

A current deal that expires tomorrow is $1.95 a month for three months from TravelZoo.

Audible is celebrating their 20th anniversary this month, with a special every day. It includes 6 free books throughout the month iirc, and one of them is today.

my wife said Dracula is only 99 cents for the audiobook if you buy the kindle version on amazon for 99 cents; so less than 2 bucks total

That is because it is a "whispersync" title. You can read then listen then read (or both at the same time) and it keeps your place across devices. Caveat: they both must be the whispersync titles. I have a few books bought years ago that will not "sync" with the audiobook for that reason. Bottom line.... make sure you get the right version of Dracula.

FYI, I bought Shogun for $1.99 a while back and added the audiobook for $3.95. Killer deal.

Yeah, whispersync can be confusing, as some popular books like Dracula might have dozens of kindle versions, some linked to an audible version for cheap and some not, and sometimes different audible versions as well.

This sixty cent version of Dracula appears to offer a whispersync version for example.

And fwiw, I think amazon still does a free kindle/whispersync combo every month.

FREE Audiobook at Audible

I Am Legend
By: Richard Matheson
Narrated by: Robertson Dean
Length: 5 hrs and 19 mins
Unabridged

In I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world, and those unfortunate enough to survive are transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Robert Neville is the last living man on earth. Every other man, woman, and child has become a vampire, and they are all hungry for Neville's blood. By day, he is the hunter, stalking the sleeping undead through the abandoned ruins of civilization. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn. How long can one man survive in a world of vampires?
