Dragonfly in Amber - AUDIBLE STYLE!

Lads and Lassies - I am currently downloading Dragonfly in Amber on Audible.com - for free! Go check out their free download deal (if you've never ordered before, that is.) I am so thrilled because a) so many of you have told me it's better on audio during round 2... and b) listening is way easier when you're me. Have dishes to do? Grab the iPod!  Have to fold clothes? Grab the iPod! Have to check homework? Ok well maybe not then. But still... I hope to have a thorough and decent DinA post for you soon. Until then...

DAVINA, HERE I COME!!!

  1. Thank you so much for posting this!! I just e-mailed their customer service to ask if I could have a free download- is that what you did? I've been wanting to get these on audiobook for a long time. I've heard great things about Miss Davina Porter :)

    Oh Carol, I just carved Jamie's behind from page 5 of the Exile onto a pumpkin and it is the funniest thing I've ever seen. You've gotta hop over to my blog and see this!

  2. I'm seeing a 7.49/mo for 3 mos offer, but not the freebie DIA. Am I missing something? (obvious answer: yes)

    And where's that skype video you promised?

  3. Oh, eff. The offer is only for new customers who've never done a free download before. BlueMoon you will loooooove it.

    And adventures, I've just been too lazy to edit the vid, but I'll get on it pronto, I promise... :-)

  4. I LOVE listening to them! I downloaded Outlander thanks to you guys a while back and I just started part 2 of DiA last night.

    HEAVEN!!!

  5. Oh Blue... you are my absolute HERO right now!!!!!!

    Tracey is right, North - it's only for people who have never downloaded before. I remedied that on the blog so people will know. Sorry :(

  6. Lis I am so happy I DLed it. I should have done this weeks ago. And I feel vindicated since I bought Outlander through Audible - via Amazon - and didn't get it free when everyone else did!!

  7. Have you started it yet - You will love it!!!

    That is the book that had the horrible spoiler intro at least on the CD version. The rest of the book makes up for it :)

    What is with that funny word thing I have to type in to comment?

  8. L: Is the audio Dragonfly spoiler any worse than the back of the book one, which basically gives away the entire "20 years have gone by" premise?

    Re: funny word thing--Carol had to put that up since the blog was just getting too many spammers. Hopefully that'll foil them! :-) PS--I love the word it's making me put in right now: "dewedork." If that's not a word, it should be...

  9. Tracey, remember when you made me read page 1 of Dragonfly with you on the phone that first time?

    Tracey: Go ahead and read it... I'll wait.

    Carol: OK...(reads)....OH MY GOD!!!!

  10. I'm on my third reading/listening go-round. I'm currently listening to Voyager and I've found that the audiobooks give me a 'voice' to listen to when I choose to actually READ the books. They come more alive for me thru listening, and I agree w/Carol or Tracey that when I have to put an audiobook or 'real' book down to do something else, I feel like I've left Jamie and Claire 'doing their thing' on the mountain or in Scotland, etc while I'm doing my thing at home, just waiting for me to come back and observe their story! THAT's how real the audiobooks make it for me. (It truly is a "sick" thing, I think!) Such an addiction! : )
    Carol/Tracey: I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! and Blue Moon Magnolia's too. The pumpkin carving is tooooooo cool!!!

  11. This is why I was pissed as I am a not spoiler girl.

    "Clair Randall, successful physician and recent widow has returned to the Scottish highlands with her nearly grown daughter to look up a young historian she met briefly some 20 years earlier. But why has she come back? What does she know about the rim of standing stones on near by Craig Na Dun? And who is really the father of her beautiful copperhead daughter Brianna?"

  12. Thanks Anonymous! Don't you love doing your thing and listening to them do theirs?? Although they don't do a lot of dishwasher loading like I do. :)

    L - Oh. My. GOD. You don't even know the MASSIVE FREAK OUT I'd have had if I had read that before starting DinA for the first time. Seriously.

  13. Think twice about it. I just tried the same thing and it would only allow you to download in one format which I was not able to put on CD or an SD card to go in my car.

  14. I got mine and LOVE it!! I've never listened to any of these books before. And now that I'm doing so, I wonder if I even read the first part of DIA. I think I was just so shocked and mad that I didn't take it in. Plus now that I "know" Bree & Roger, I'm enjoying it all that much more. Fun!! Thanks for the link!

  15. Would actually not recommend Davina Porter's version (the abridged version) - Geraldine James does a far better version.

  16. Just finished Outlander audio - I commute 90minutes a day and it has been JAMMF Heaven! I download from iTunes, they've had the best price, and then just dump them onto my own CDs for backup and car listening. I also don't have time for "rereads", but listening is awesome!
