Audible TN books

Hello, I am new to the Fforum so apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere.

I like to listen to the TN books and have them all except Something Rotten and First Amongst Sequels. I have checked on itunes - nothing there (and fyi they have the author of Shades of Gray as Jasper Gareth!) and - I have found them on (read by Emily Gray) so don't understand why I can't find them on the UK site. In fact the American site has the Nursery Crimes books which I have not been able to find on the UK site either.

I have tried searching for Author, title and also tried narrator. Any suggestions welcome

Hi Looloo1960. Make your self at home.
Help yourself to pie, sweet (to the left) and savoury (to the right).Marked, as usual with an "S" so that you can tell which are which. No audio pies, though.

Virtual pies are silent.
(Perhaps we need to differentiate between those that make a sound and those that are silent. Can't think of a sign, though.)

Sorry but I can't help with the audio book problem. You could try buying from the U.S. site, but there may be copyright restrictions which stop you. It is also worth looking at and which may have English language versions

Thank you for the pie, it was delicious

I will try your suggestion regarding etc. I did not buy from the American site as I am a member of the audible uk site and wanted to use my credits - never mind :(

Yes, British Audible doesn't have the same broad selection as the American one but there's a chance you could find the unabridged CD version on one of the Amazons or ebay. Of course for an Overseas Amazon you have to be lucky and Amazon selling directly as marketplacers don't usually ship overseas.

Of course, some of those marketplacers have some of their own sites anyway... And there are abridged as well as unabridged versions. Unabridged is 10CDs long!

Now that I'm older I find that my reading of the TN books is audible anyway as I follow each word with my finger and mouth the sounds.

Yours sincerely

Does Australia have the equivalent of this:


You'll need the equivalent of money before using, though.
