Today I learned that if you have an Audible subscription, you don't get your new credit (ie new book) until not just the day it ticks over but the exact time of day you bought the subscription.

So all yesterday, a gray awful day, I looked forward to having a new book to listen to today. I perused my wishlist and pondered what I'd get next. Do I want Black and British? Or The Glass Universe? Or The Warmth of Other Suns? Maybe I'll finally get around to Neurotribes or Bad Feminist. I'm still not sure.

Today, I tried about noon to get a new book, but the app still said I had 0 Credits. But it also said I got a new one on August 2, 2017.

I was very confused. Andrew looked it up and eventually found this thing about the time of day. Seems stupid and awful to me. He didn't remember when he'd set up the account, he said, "but it was after you'd gone to bed. So it could be anything between 9pm and 3am."

"If it were 3am I would've been able to get it by now!" I said.

So we don't know when it was yet. But it's later than this; I just checked. I'm just going to have to start thinking that the third day of the month is the one I get the new book.

That sounds very frustrating. Which new book did you get in the end?
