Audiobook Giveaway: The Dragon Reborn

Posted by Dwynwen on May 09 2012 06:40 PM under in Audio Books


It's time for another audiobook giveaway! Here are the rules again for those who aren't familiar with our giveaways:

Macmillan Audio has partnered with us to bring you an amazing opportunity once again. We are going to give away free copies of each audiobook in the Wheel of Time series between now and when the final book is published. 
On the first Wednesday of each month (and on the first and third Wednesdays of the month once we get to the final few books), I will post an audio clip for one of the audiobooks. The book featured in the clip will be the one we're giving away at the time. 
As each clip is posted online, I will randomly select three winners to receive either a free digital audiobook download or a free CD. This contest is open to anybody world-wide, but non-US residents can only receive the digital download.
Entering to win is simple. Every time I post an audio clip, I will post a topic for discussion. Just post a response to the discussion question in the comments section of each news article. The winners will be randomly selected from the comments section exactly one week after I post the article. 
There can be only one entry per person each time I put up an article. You cannot win more than once for this audiobook promotion.
If you are selected as a winner, I will PM you to notify you and request your contact information. Make sure to check your PMs, because if I still cannot reach you after two weeks from the date of my first PM, your prize will be given to another randomly drawn winner.

This month, we will be giving away a copy of The Dragon Reborn. Click here for a clip from the audiobook.
This month's question is: If you could join an Ajah from the books, which one would you choose and why? You have until Wednesday, May 16th to answer in the comments section. Good luck!

For me it would be the green Ajah. They are the Battle Ajah. To be able to fight with sword or spear and use the One Power in battle. That would make me feel satisfied with helping the world. Also I'm married. The Green either marry their warders or have more than one. That also would suit me. A female companion is good to have. She could be my opposite and also a balace to for me.
If I were able to choose an Ajah, it would be the Blue Ajah. I love the idea of fighting for causes and justice, and I identify more with the sisters of the Blue Ajah more than any other. Furthermore, I feel that the majority of the Blue Sisters we meet in the Wheel of Time have an extraordinary sense of self, as well as unparalleled perseverance and spirit.
I don't think I'd want to join an Ajah since I'm a guy! I'd just have to go join the black tower.
I would choose the Blue Ajah. I have alwas been one to champion a good cause. There is nothing more satisfying than helping to solve the larger isuues while providing a service to others.
I would pick the brown. . . staying inside and reading a lot is what all the cool kids do. . . right ?
It's the black tower for me.
I'd go for the White Ajah (provided that the Tower would accept men) because I like the idea of logic, reason and discussing theories about the world. I'd probably be one of those oddly temperamental ones.
Hmm, I wonder if in the future timeline the Black Tower would develop something like the Ajahs in the White Tower...If I could pick one, being a man, probably the Brown. I'm a total science/knowledge/book geek, and Verin is one of my favorite characters.
Though I would probably channel Saidin, I would choose Green: no sitting comfortably in the White Tower, but to fight for the Light.
I would choose Green Ajah so i could go out and fight instead of just sitting in the tower all day
Green Ajah I like the idea of being a battle Aes Sedai lol
I'd be a Brown, doing the research behind the scenes
I would just hang out with the Dragon Reborn, or Golden Eyes as I am male and would rather not be in the Black Tower.
If men were still a part of the White Tower, I would have to go with the Blue Ajah since I would want to go out and help the world, especially to those that need it.
I would be a Brown. I love to read, do research, and in general learn new things. I feel like I would be right at home :)
I'd be in the Black Tower, part of Logain's group.
If i had a choosing of my choice, i would join the Black Ajah, but for good rather then bad, and uncover weaknesses in the Dark One's/Forsaken's defences. Then, in the final moments before The Last Battle, chew down some death pills and spill all my discoveries to Rand Althor, and hopefully actually make a difference in the bigger picture of Randland.
I'd be of the Blue Ajah. I'd travel over the world and help those who need it.
Probably blue; tower politics would annoy me and I'd rather be out doing good deeds on my own.
Brown Ajah, totally. I'd probably be one of those Aes Sedai who spend all their time in the library.
As a guy I have to pick the black tower, but I'd side with Logain. As for picking an Ajah, I'd choose to give my bond to a blue sister since I would want to be out of the tower as much as I could. Not really what the question asked I know, but until the white tower starts accepting men it's all I have to work with!
Well, I'm a guy, but if I weren't - the Red Ajah. Before Saidin was cleansed, the hunting of men who could channel was one of the most important tasks before the Tower. The damage caused by false Dragons attests to that. Now that the Source is cleansed, well, I think the Red must play a key role in the eventual acceptance of the Black Tower - there's a saying that goes, "Only Nixon could open China." The idea is that, when making amends with an old and hated enemy, the most effective diplomats are those who were the most hawkish, because their motives are beyond reproach. Sure, the Grreens might get along with Asha'man, but everyone knows the Greens are man-lovers. If the Reds recognized them, on the other hand... If the Black Tower is ever to gain serious credibility in Tar Valon, there would be no better vehicle than the Reds, and that might just make them the most important Ajah around, going into Tarmon Gai'don. If they ever get their act together. Which they would, under my glorious leadership.
black tower all the way for this guy
Green Ajah because they are the battle ajah. I would definitely be out on the front lines dishing death to the forces of the Dark One.
I believe I would want to join the band of the red hand myself and avoid all the aes sedai.
