Giveaway - Absolute Power - David Baldacci


Absolute Power is the book that started it all for New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci.

The Hachette Book Group has just released Absolute Power in an unabridged CD set and here's your chance to win one of three audio book copies!

From the publisher:

"In a heavily guarded mansion in a posh Virginia suburb, a man and a woman start to make love, trapping a burglar behind a secret wall. Then the passion turns deadly, and the witness is running into the night. Because what he has just seen is a brutal slaying involving the president of the United States.

Luther Whitney is the career break-in artist who's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Alan Richmond is the charming U.S. president with the power to commit any crime. And Jack Graham is the young attorney caught in a vortex between absolute truth and... ABSOLUTE POWER."

Listen to an excerpt of Absolute Power. Or, read an excerpt of Absolute Power.

Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes please. To be entered, tell me where you listen to audio books. Closes Saturday March 6th, 6 pm EST. Check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.

where I listen to audio books is my room, or sometimes I listen to them while I am driving or just cleaning around the house.

I listen to audio books in my car. I don't like to drive by myself, so on trips to my daughter's (about 2 1/2 hours away) I listen to books to help the time pass more quickly. I would love to win one of these books. Thanks for the giveaway.

Like many of those who have left comments here, I listen to audio books in the car when commuting to and from work. Or rather, I should say, newly retired person that I am, that I USED to listen to audio books while commuting. Now I listen wherever I'm driving. I have been known to miss exits from I-95 or miss street turns so engrossed have I been in the current listen. Now I also listen in my apartment. I'm currently listening to The Children's Book.

In Transit: I listen when I am traveling from one point to another via car, bus, train, plane (NOT bike - too dangerous. Walking is OK too. Running? Too meh.

Also great while doing routine or rote chores, like cleaning or weeding.

I listen to them in the car. We live in a remote area, so getting to places like the doctor or a mall takes awhile, and audio books help pass the time.
