Audiobook CDs?

Post  mae55 on 7/25/2016, 2:01 pm

I ordered both the book and the audiobook from Barnes & Noble. The book came last week (though I haven't had time to read it yet) but today I got an email that the audiobook "is no longer scheduled for release." Amazon still lists it as available if you subscribe to their "Audible" service. Does this mean they've co-opted it so that only their subscribers can get it? Chris's books are the only audio books I buy, to listen to in the car. I really don't appreciate being tied to amazon and listening to it from my computer. :angry: Has anyone else been able to get it?

I've pre ordered the cd audio from Amazon , it's says it's not available until the end of August, which makes sense because it doesn't seem that long ago that Chris said he was recoding it

I was able to order the audiobook CDs from Barnes & Noble once it was out, so it's on its way to me now. I still think it's odd that they canceled my pre-order though. Finally reading the book as well. Glad to see the book-huggers back in the story and that Bree and her relatives are going to search for Emmerich.

I saw that as well.

I will be finally getting WIFI next week instead of having to use the credit on my phone or the broadband stick. neutre 

I am living at another caravan park which is 100 times better than the last one.
