Amazing. I just bought 32 audiobooks for $158.

If you're a reader and audiobook person at all, then this might be the most amazing sale you've ever seen. Audible just announced 200+ titles for $4.95 each. That's nuts. There's some good ones in there, too.

Here's what I bought -

Catch Me If You Can $4.95 War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning $4.95 Hughes: The Definitive Biography of the First American Billionaire $4.95 Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life Without Losing Its Soul $4.95 Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China $4.95 Waterloo $4.95 The Iliad & The Odyssey $4.95 Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba...and Then Lost It to the Revolution $4.95 The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires $4.95 Hunting Eichmann: Chasing Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi $4.95 Adams vs. Jefferson: The Tumultuous Election of 1800 $4.95 Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else $4.95 How An Economy Grows And Why It Crashes $4.95 Influencer: The Power to Change Anything $4.95 Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets $4.95 The Lessons of History $4.95 Reminiscences of a Stock Operator $4.95 The Law of Success: From the Master Mind to the Golden Rule (in Sixteen Lessons) $4.95 Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand $4.95 Empire of the Summer Moon $4.95 Crime and Punishment $4.95 Gilgamesh: A New English Version $4.95 Man's Search for Meaning $4.95 The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance $4.95 The Prince $4.95 China Road: A Journey into the Future of a Rising Power $4.95 Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City $4.95 The Rise and Fall of Alexandria: Birthplace of the Modern Mind $4.95 The Ultimate Sales Machine $4.95 The Art of the Start: The Time-Tested, Battle-Hardened Guide for Anyone Starting Anything $4.95 The Road to Serfdom $4.95 Spycraft: The Secret History of the CIA's Spytechs from Communism to Al-Qaeda $4.95 You Paid: $158.40

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.

Hi Sebastian

Happy new year!

I am hoping you would share your resources for your reading on Japanese history. Book titles and/or urls would be very helpful.

I got that a week ago, and I kind of sat there staring at the email. Japanese history is some of the most confusing to start to learn, because different elements of Japanese history and culture all play on and influence each other. I could run you through the military history of Japan from The Battle of Okehazama to Sekigahara to the Boshin War, from there into Dai Nippon Tekoku Era, from there into defeat and the Occupation under McArthur, and then we could do a little post-war history.
