On the eve of St. Nicholas Day 2018…

Tomorrow is St. Nicholas Day! Don’t forget to have your children leave their shoes out by the door so St. Nick can fill them with presents and goodies tonight!

If I could go back in time, we would solely do Santa gifts on December 6 and save the 25th for family gifts and celebrating Christ’s birth. But, my daughters absolutely won’t consider it now, as they are delighted about playing “the Santa game” on the 24th with their baby brother.

If you’re looking to introduce St. Nick into your family traditions, here are some past posts on books and resources I recommend:

We also purchased the cute St. Nicholas felt doll and Ostheimer figure from Bella Luna Toys, here!

 

Hope you have a wonderful Advent season!

Get the audiobook version of “Teaching from Rest” by Sarah MacKenzie for just $4.95, plus other Audible deals

Right now you can get the audiobook version of “Teaching from Rest”, by Read Aloud Revival host and popular speaker Sarah MacKenzie, for just $4.95! There’s no need to have an Audible subscription to grab a la carte deals like this from Audible. Just follow the link, check out on Amazon like normal, and then listen with the free Audible app. I found this book to be SO encouraging, and I purchased this audiobook deal because even though our local library has “Teaching from Rest,” it is ALWAYS checked out. Plus, this way I can listen while walking on the Greenbelt or something else fun! I plan to make listening to this book an annual habit.

Also, if you love audiobooks, here are two more great deals! (Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.) One great way to get free or cheap audiobooks is by purchasing the Kindle version of the book and then adding on the audiobook version.

You can grab Tom Sawyer on both Kindle AND Audible for $0.99! ?? Head to this link to get the Kindle book for free, and then before you check out, click the box that says “add Audible narration for $0.99.” You’ll get the audiobook version shown above, read by Nick Offerman -regularly $19.99!

You can also get “The Wizard of Oz” on Kindle and audiobook for just $0.99!

Just head to this link, and right under the “buy now” button, choose “add Audible narration for .99” then check out like normal. You’ll get the Kindle book for free, and  – here’s the BEST part – the audiobook version read by Anne Hathaway for only $0.99!

Thanks, Read Aloud Revival!

Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s a great deal for you: get $10 off a $25 book purchase at Amazon with code HOLIDAYBOOK. If you’re like me, you have a book wish list a mile long, so codes like this are fun! Please note, this code will only work when the seller is Amazon, so if it’s not working for you, go back and check your seller. Here are all the details!

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

“Come Back to Audible” promotion = 2 months for $0.99 each

I found this deal on one of my favorite Facebook pages: Read Aloud Resources. It worked for me, although my account was in “inactive” status and I had to completely cancel first, then sign back up.

Audible is doing a “Come Back to Audible” promotion for 2 months for $0.99 each– As far as I can tell, it works for any current account that is not enrolled in Audible right now. (I couldn’t use it on my enrolled account, but it worked for both my husband’s and mom’s accounts that were not active.) My mom received an email with a button to click… it brought her to the shopping cart with this promotion code applied: 153IMUXOB324

So perhaps you can sign in and choose “Gold membership” and then enter the above code? The link here is what was attached to the button in the email…looks like it works ok!

My husband did not received this email but I was able to sign into his account and get the promotion… so it looks like the promotion is not attached to certain accounts– just those that aren’t active. Try it!! Hope it works!!

**Edited to add… I was able to cancel my active account and immediately use the link below to get the promo! (After they gave me a free book to try to get me to stay!) Just make sure you use up your credits before cancelling your active account! I don’t think they will save once you cancel!**

Thanks, Read Aloud Resources!

My kids love the book Bunnicula! It makes for a fantastic, not-too-scary read around Halloween, although it’s lots of fun anytime. For the next 24 hours, Penguin Random House Audio is offering a FREE download of the audiobook of Bunnicula inside their smartphone app, called Volumes. For all the info, visit their Facebook page here.
