Here's how to convert Audible books into .MP3 files for yourself; please do consider providing your Audiobooks back in return.

The following .ZIP has two important applications in it and a folder titled "STEPS" with images; this is really easy to do.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/alzrfumev6fnur3/BOOKS.zip

0. Install the yellow Audible application. You won't need to do anything with this just yet; there's not even a sign- in.
Install the application named "BLACK" that looks similar. This is in German though we'll return to that.

  1. Go to Audible.com .
To the far left it'll read "Library" and hovering over that reveals "My Books", click that.
Here there's a listing of all your books with misc details on them. Press the "DOWNLOAD" tab to the far right of each book.

2. Doing this will rigth away open the Audible application and start downloading a .AAX file to the Audible application itself.
When that finishes press the "Downloads Folder" button so you can find that .AAX file.

3. Open the BLACK application and press that damn "Durchsuchen" button and find that .AAX file. With this your Audible book is now an .MP3, friend!

I mean, cool and interesting and with consequences and a complex system and all that. I loved the One Power in the Wheel of Time series, and it is the only thing that kept me reading those god awful books (sorry to fans, it just got so boring and drawn out). The One Power is pretty overpowered, but is balanced with enough weaknesses and drawbacks that it is very cool still.

Harry Potter system is uninteresting to me because it seems limitless and confusing. So many unnecessary spells. Spells themselves come off as wishes that people conjure into reality by speaking phony latin.

COOL spellcasting books ONLY.

Or UNCOOL books if you want to vent.

Night Watch and it's sequels have a unique system that uses it's dual (or tri, because vampires also exist) source of power system as a mild social commentary. There are some really neat concepts about the way a season "combat magician" would employ magic. Rookies use wasteful things such as fireballs, etc. whereas someone who specializes in magic combat uses creative application of phsyics manipulation.

The Bartimaeus Trilogy probably has my favorite depiction of magic in fiction.

Essentially, magic is done by summoning demons (the hard way, with pentagrams and circles and herbs and runes), and either slaving them to your will or drawing power from them/their home dimension for spells. And if you mess it up, with a broken circle or a misdrawn rune or whathaveyou, the demon is probably going to kill you.

Most of the series is told from the point of view of one of these demons, who's something like 1,500 years old and served in Ptolemaic Egypt once upon a time. It also deals with the societal effects of magic being around this way: Magicians form the nobility of England, the only way to become a magician is through a dangerous, difficult and heavily guarded educational process, so the proles have no chance of getting ahead, and technological progress seems to have taken a back seat. You don't know what year it is in the books, but neon is noted as a new invention, guns don't seem to exist and America is still a rebellious colony.

Pretty cool series.

What is the literary equivalent to Avatar: The Last Airbender?

A cozy quest across the world, with a trio of fun characters like Aang (fun-loving and honest, but mischevious), Kitara (responsible) and Sokka (annoying but well-intentioned).

And an enemy that within his own clique is struggling to maintain status and has honorable or understandable motivations.

Just a book with some of those general elements or feelings. Not a literal novelization or anything.

the WoT is what i broke my teeth on with fantasy and is pretty similar to Avatar.
3 mains and a few good secondary characters.. but be prepared for the long haul.

14 books and a prequel, each book is huge, and a couple of the middle books are considered boring.

I'm new to fanfic and curious what everyone's favorites are, and also snag some recs. I recently discovered Harry Potter And The Methods Of Rationality and it made me wonder how many other high quality stories are being told using already popular franchises rather than making their own characters. I'm looking for fanfic that is story driven rather than shipping, although I can overlook occasional romance as long as its not a romance story first and formost.

I like geeky shit like sci fi, anime, capeshit, etc. I am looking for alternative versions of classic tales, continuations of ended franchises. Also, modern Marvel and DC comics suck since they never kill anyone, good or evil. I'd like some fanfic that takes those worlds in directions the comics are too tame/pussy to ever go, like Justice League with Game Of Thrones style delivery.

Anybody know any alternate history fiction where the USSR wins (or survives) the Cold War/WW3? I liked Red Army by Ralph Peters but I'm looking for something that explores wider issues than just the tactics on the ground.

Dead Morn, by Piers Anthony and Roberto Fuentes wasn't Russian communism, but it's set in a post-apocalyptic future where Cuba is the only surviving country, albeit in Fallout Vault form. The protagonist is a time traveller sent back to the Cuban revolution, who realises he has the choice of whether Fidel or Che is the survivor who founds the future's society.

There was a 1988 TV miniseries set in a Soviet-occupied USA, kind of a response to The Day After, or a spiritual sequel to Red Dawn. Anyway, to make it /lit/, there was a novelisation, "Amerika: The Triumph of the American Spirit".

Though it would probably be considered one of "the basics," pic fucking related.

Also (though it's not sci-fi), for those who'd be in to southern gothic, I might suggest Flannery O'Connor; Wise Blood was a fucking trip.

Just finished it today. Great read. Orwell gift for the written word really shines here.
I especially like the political aspect. He remains stoic throughout the book and even warns people about any possible mistake he has made and his small, personal bias regarding the commentary; which is why I think it has a really constructive possibility to influence/challenge people's /pol/itical views.

It's a true story about his own experience as a militia member of the POUM during the spanish civil war. It's consistently exciting and it even has twists, something you'd expect from a fictional adventure novel. I've read 1984 before this book, and after reading you can evidently see the connections between his own first-hand experience and the dystopian story of Winston Smith.

I read 1984 when I was 14, quickly moved on to Homage to Catalonia, Down and Out in Paris and London and various essays. Death of an Elephant (I think that's what it's called) stuck with me the most I think.
Fucking great author.
