    Audible is having some kind of $4.95 sale. I don’t know much about it since I can’t get to the sale page (apparently the sale is not meant for all geo locations), but there’s a banner at the top of the home page that shows up if the sale is for you.

    Angela James tweeted some links to the audiobooks and while a few of them were geo restricted, I did manage to grab Mira Grant’s FEED at the lowered price. Then I checked through my wish list on the off chance that some of them might be included. :/ No such luck. (But this is the reason I put everything I’m remotely interested in on my wish list.)

    ETA: Here’s the link.

    If anyone wants some guidance on Harlequins for BoB’s 50% off sale, here’s my Goodreads shelf for category romance, sorted by star rating. That should be about 90% Harlequin, 10% ebook re-releases of Signet regencies.
