1. A standalone deal on Audible Plus is quite possible. 2. Most probably, you will see the deal on long-term plans. 3. Kindle e-readers may be sold with free Audible Plus as well.
Audible Plus is a new audiobook subscription that costs $7.95 per month and works the same way as Kindle Unlimited.
It gives unlimited access to audiobooks from Plus Catalog, which includes over 11,000 audio publications. Most of them are produced by Audible. The subscription doesn’t give free credits that you can exchange for premium audiobooks.
Black Friday 2020: what Audible Plus deals to expect
Audible Plus is a brand-new subscription, but it’s possible to see some deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
A vast majority of eligible audiobooks is produced by Audible, a company owned by Amazon. Amazon may want to bring the subscription into focus on Black Friday and beyond.
There are only 11 thousand audiobooks. Because of that, many users may cancel the service during the free trial. Amazon may want to offer longer-term plans, with huge price cuts but no free trial.
The most probable Audible Plus deal for Black Friday is a set of long-term subscriptions – 6, 12, and 24 months – with price cuts reaching 40%.
Amazon may also offer free Audible Plus plans bundled with Kindle e-readers the same way as Kindle Unlimited. For the basic Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite, I expect to see the 3-month free plan. For Kindle Oasis, it would be 6 months.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
