On the train coming into work this morning I was listening to TWiT 239: Meat Up, and where Leo plugs his audible pick of the week;
Leo Laporte It’s his – Daniel Suarez really, obviously is a geek but I am surprised he’s is not here because he just obviously is into this stuff. All right, well let’s make The Wind Up Girl our pick of the week from Paolo Bacigalupi. It’s 19 hours and 34 minutes, you’re going to get value for dollar there, it’s a long book. And you can get it free by going to audible.com/twit2, actually you can get two books, so why don’t you get that and Daemon? And one of the great things about listening to these books is now you can participate with Sword and Laser and you can join their conversation at – is it theswordandlaser.com?

I though that it would be worthwhile putting both The Wind Up Girl, and Daemon onto my Wish List.
This wasn’t too difficult for Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Wind Up Girl a quick search for the author and click you’re in the list.
Not so simple for Daniel Suarez’s ‘Daemon’, I cannot even get the product from a search from my account! A quick search via Google and the issue is clear;
