Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes Use Overcast and Join Together to Listen to Audiobooks » Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes
“And a great way to prepare audio files for upload to the Overcast cloud is to use use my Join Together app to consolidate the files of an audiobook to just a single file (or a small batch of individual files) under 250MB. In fact, it’s likely you could get about eight hours of decent-sounding spoken word audio in a single audio file under that limit when it’s encoded at 64kbps.”

Google launches a DRM-free audiobook store: finally, a writer- and listener-friendly Audible alternative! / Boing Boing
“Ten years later, Audible controls more than 90% of the audiobook market, making it the last bastion of DRM in audiobooks -- competitors like Downpour and Libro.fm sell all the same books without DRM, and the audiobooks you get at your local library have been DRM-free for years.

[…]

“Google has just launched a DRM-free audiobook store that duplicates nearly the entire catalog at Audible. When you buy your audiobooks from Google Play you can download them to any device, play it on any device, convert them, archive them, back them up. If you decide you don't want to use Google products in the future, you won't lose your audiobooks. It's fucking amazing.”

Why Marx Was Right by Terry Eagleton
From one of the reviews—
“This is a fabulous book. It’s not an apology for Marxism but rather a reinvigoration of the original philosophy of the man, a philosophy which has been unfairly maligned over the last century due mainly to the twin state-capitalist monstrosities built in its name by Stalin and Mao. There is nothing in Marx’s writing that leads one to think of state terror and closed societies, quite the contrary.”

Join Together - v5.4 | Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes
"Join Together automates the process of joining the files of selected iTunes tracks together with QuickTime and exporting them as a single AAC Music or Audiobook file/track. Optionally, you can then create a "chapterized" audio file of the exported AAC file with pointers to the individually joined tracks. Join Together is still available as a free well-featured basic version--which has the same or better features as it's ever had--and as a US$7 shareware Plus version, which has additional pre-flight and post-op features requested by power-users."
