Was anyone able to download Of Poseidon? When I click the link to download, I receive an error that the file was not found.
Something's wrong with their geographic-restriction programming. That audiobook is supposed to be available in the US and Canada, but I got the same 404 whenever I tried to get it from home. No problem from work or from my smart-phone.
So I set up my smart-phone as a mobile hot-spot, had my computer access Internet through that instead of my Wi-Fi router, and no problems.
Added: I don't know for sure, but I think that when I originally clicked the links for The Tempest, what actually downloaded was Of Poseidon. I wasn't paying close attention. But when I got my mobile hot-spot up and running and tried to download Of Poseidon, I found that I already had it but didn't have The Tempest.

I haven't had any trouble downloading using high-speed DSL service. I had a possibly useful thought; check your PMs.

Just a reminder that the classic "Jane Eyre" by Charolotte Brontë and the YA title "The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, Book 1: The Mysterious Howling" by Maryrose Wood were posted yesterday and will be available thru June 12th.

In years past, there have been issues with bandwidth downloading the free audiobooks on the first day they are posted.
Perhaps waiting a day or two before trying will solve your issue?
