Tantor MediaTantor Media has 45 MP3 audiobooks on sale for $6.99 each. The complete list is below. We discovered this after finding out that the 35% discount code, posted about yesterday, didn’t work on Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. The 35% off coupon code is only for titles that are regularly priced. But this is actually wonderful news as $6.99 is more than 65% off the regular price!

As you can see I’ve linked to the first three but if you see a title you like below that isn’t linked, do a search for it in the Tantor site, HERE. Some of the titles appear to have broken links when you do a search and then click directly on the Tantor Download button (like Terra Incognita) but that doesn’t mean you can’t get it. Click through on the title itself, then you should be able to see the “add to cart” beside where it says “audio download” and $6.99. This new MP3 download is new to Tantor and they’re still working out the kinks.
