Free Audiobook - Stories I Only Tell My Friends

I've been listening to the audiobook version of Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography ($12.99 Kindle), by Rob Lowe, and today everyone can get a free copy of it from Audible. This showed up today as a Kindle Special Offer, but there isn't a promo code and no claim is necessary, so all you need is an Audible account (use your Amazon login for this one); I suspect the offer is geographically limited to those in the US and possibly Canada.

While you are at Audible, you may also be able to take advantage of their Holiday Relief Sale (some of their sales are limited to those with a subscription plan), which features over 100 audiobooks at $9.95 each, which is less than most of their plan credits. If you don't have a subscription and were thinking of getting one (or were planning on getting a new Kindle Fire or other qualifying device, anyway), you can't go wrong with their $100 Promotion deal; you sign up via the link and within a couple of hours, usually, you get an email with a promotion code that you use during checkout (no one-clicking) on any device listed (which includes Kindles, MP3 players, GPS's, headphones/speakers and even laptops and tablets).
Book Description
A wryly funny and surprisingly moving account of an extraordinary life lived almost entirely in the public eye. A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences as a painfully misunderstood child actor in Ohio who was uprooted to the wild counterculture of mid-70s Malibu, where he embarked on his unrelenting pursuit of a career in Hollywood. The Outsiders placed Lowe at the birth of the modern youth movement in the entertainment industry. During his time on The West Wing, he witnessed the surreal nexus of show business and politics, both on the set and in the actual White House. And in between are deft and humorous stories of the wild excesses that marked the 80s, leading to his quest for family and sobriety.

Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.
