Better late than never, I present my Audible Monthly Credit(s) Report for August. I have a two-credit per month subscription at Audible and the ritual of spending these credits is one that I treasure. In August, I struggled with my decision a bit and still feel just so-so about my choices.
I am probably one of the only persons in America who associates Julian Fellowes with novels and not with Downton Abbey. I've only seen season one. I've been assured that I will LOVE the series and that I HAVE TO WATCH IT, and I promise that I will. But for some reason, I just haven't gotten around to it. I have listened to audio editions of two of his novels though--Snobs and Past Imperfect--and thoroughly enjoyed both. The reviews of the audio production of Belgravia are very positive so I went for it. I haven't listened yet, but I anticipate a good experience.
As a side note, it looks like the enhanced "new look" of the Audible library that I clumsily navigated when spending my monthly credits did not last long. Back to business as usual when I bought my 2-for-1 titles.
*The three extra credits totaled under $35 dollars (can't find the exact figure on the site), about what I pay per credit with my monthly subscription ($22.95 for two credits). However, I don't want to get in the habit of buying extra credits as I so look forward to deliberating about how to spend the two I have. It will be nice to have the extras for listening emergencies though!
