I actually own several of those already on Kindle or paper, but I got audio copies of the ones I like since it's so cheap and such a good deal.
If you're ever thinking of doing the audio thing, this is the time to get started.
Seriously, it's $7.95 to join Audible and that gets you any book in their catalog for free. This sale is absolutely crazy and wonderful, you really should take advantage of it. You could grab 5-10 audiobooks for 25 to 50 dollars... that's nuts. There's some really good ones in there too besides what I got - I already had 20 of them.
I've given ridiculous amounts of money to Audible and this is the best sale I've ever seen. It's only for a few days so go get everything you might want to read, books are so ridiculously good for your life and they're cheap even at the $15 to $45 price point that audiobooks are normally at. $4.95 per title is just ridiculous, I spend more than that on all kinds of stupid stuff.
Strongly recommended -
