We have updated the audio book discounts page for March 2010. It is hard to believe that march is already upon us. Though many of us have tossed some of our New Year’s Resolutions aside I always feel that it is never too late in setting goals for whatever you find important in your life right now. This month’s audio book specials have selections for 2 popular areas when it comes to self improvement, weight loss and goal setting.
The Zone and the Atkins diets have been around for quite a while and yet continue to be popular for helping you to reach your weight loss and weight management goals. This month we have 2 audio books The Atkins Essentials and Mastering the Zone. Both are relatively short audio books at 3 hours. They give you the essence of what you need to get started with these dietary approaches. With Spring around the corner now is a great time to get started.
The Self Help arena has been getting a lot of heat lately because of the unfortunate death of some people at a sweat lodge ceremony at a function with Self Help guru James Arthur Ray. I have been a great fan of self help books. I confess I have never attended a live event for any of the so called gurus. You can get a lot out of self help books if you can filter them for what makes sense for you.
Goal Setting and Positive Mindset are areas that are considered self help. The reality is that most people do not get what they want unless they have a clear plan in mind. That is where Goal Setting and a Positive Mindset come into play. This month we are offering a discount on Goal Setting a Simple Solutions for Busy People. In today’s information overload society it is important to have a plan where you focus on what you want to focus on.

I reported back on November 19th that Simply Audio Books was offering a series of special offers for the Christmas 2009 season. As the 25 Days of Christmas wind down Simply Audio Books is cranking up the deals.
As readers of this blog know Neil Gaiman won the 2009 AudioBook of the Year award at the Audies for the Graveyard Book. Simply AudioBooks is offering a 25% off Special on their Neil Gaiman audio books tomorrow Thursday December 10th. If you read this in time you should be able to take advantage of today’s special of 30% off the Christmas Classic A Christmas Carol which is a bit more popular this year because of the motion picture release of Jim Carey’s Christmas Carol.
If you are a heavy commuter or know one Simply AudioBooks rental model is very convenient. It is similar to Netflix in the way that it works. You create a list and based on the membership you choose you get the number of audio books on CD that you have signed up for based on their availability.
The remaining specials are outlined below for your convenience:

The Christmas and Holiday Season is upon us and this month we have decided to focus all of our audio book discounts and specials on Christmas Audio Book titles. On our monthly discounts page we have added 6 Christmas titles ranging from about $7 to $15. We have also reactivated our Christmas coupon code where you can take 20% off of your order. This could even be used on the purchase of these already discounted titles. The coupon code is xmasrocks and should be used at checkout when you have added all the titles you want to buy. Since it is a one time use coupon that would be the way to save the most money.
The Christmas Audio Books page is also accessible on the CreateTimeAudio website where you can find even more Christmas related audio books. Christmas tends to be so commercialized these days and the Christmas Stories highlighted in these specials and lists have a common theme. The true meaning of the Christmas Holiday Season is not about gifts and parties it is about family and living a meaningful life. Everyone has their favorite Christmas Time Story. Though classics like A Christmas Carol will always resonate checking out new titles is always interesting because the stories bring the meaning to the way we live in the present. A couple of good examples of that are The Christmas Train by David Baldacci and The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck.
Audible is offering a special for the Holiday season. They made it available for Black Friday and Cyber Monday but the truth is that you can take advantage of this offer until December 16th, 2009. For those of you who may not be familiar with Audible it is a downloadable audio book store that was acquired by Amazon back in 2008.
Though downloadable audiobooks can be purchased on a one off basis it seems more centered on subscription membership models for downloadable audio books. Due to Amazon’s reach as well as Audible’s longer history in the audio book market it tends to have a very good selection of audio books particularly when they are newly released.
Audible offers monthly and annual plans ranging from $14.95 to $22.95 per month or $149.50 to $229.50 per year. Their plan is based on the purchase of credits, one credit equals one audio book. If you are an avid listener Audible is a great option. My husband and I have had plans with Audible and have found it quite easy to use. If you plan to move your purchases around you may find it more challenging so check the device compatibility on their website. Here is their current 2009 Christmas special offer:
The November audio book discounts page has been updated for a while now. The month of November is almost over so I’m sorry for the late post. It isn’t too late to take advantage of the savings on the particular titles. There is a new author in the mix with Martina Cole who is a bestselling novelist in the UK. She has written a hard-hitting story about gang life in London ala Sopranos in the Thriller Close. This month you can get this audio book title for under $20.
Also as we head into Thanksgiving here in the US we tend to focus a lot of our attention on Family. November is Family Stories month and in honor of that we are offering a special 20% off coupon family that you can use upon check out at our CreateTimeAudio.com store. This is a one time use coupon so load up all the titles you are buying before checkout. You can even use them to get more savings on the titles on our Audio Book Discounts page.
For me biographies are a great form of family story telling so I have identified that category on the site promotions but you can use the coupon for any title. If you are doing any traveling this Thanksgiving Holiday listening to an easily downloaded audio book is definitely a way of keeping sane. Happy Thanksgiving!
