and I assume you also use the amazon.com marketplace on audible? (ie audible.com and US dollars). If that's true I would guess your settings are set up for amazon.com kindle books too, if you can buy kindle books on .com and use the whispersync feature (again it would charge you in USD).
An easy way to check is to go to amazon.ca and see if you are able to buy a kindle book. My guess is, it wont let you and say you have to go to amazon.com (obviously unless you have been changing your country settings recently).
Because yes, I am very sure that it doesnt work with an amazon.ca account. The audible.ca rep I spoke to said as much... although I guess they dont always give customers the right information.
What I found out is you can change your country settings for Kindle though, in your amazon account management. And so I just had to give it a US address and it transferred my books over without issue. And because I already had the book on audible.com (I assume) whispersync started working. In the future if I want to use whispersync I will just switch my country back to Canada to buy the kindle ebook (so I pay CAD with no conversion fees) and then switch back to use whispersync. Unfortunately I think I would be stuck paying USD on audible though, from what I can tell.
Hopefully they do implement whispersync in canada, I think its a good feature and definitely a reason for me to buy kindle ebooks over kobo. But to be honest, unless its a quality narrator/cast for the audio book, with all the hassle that it took me I will probably just stick to ebooks and using my iphone's screen reading ability to read the book to me. Its not as good as an audio book but its a lot less hassle. Until they bring the whispersync feature to canada properly anyway.
Ready Player One It takes place in a bunch of places, but it's fast-paced and lots of fun.
Ready Player One is here for kindle: [link]
I just bought it like a month ago, had no problems at all. And I liked it quite a bit, but I have a love for all things 80s. If you don't, YMMV.
Just finished reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (awesome read btw) and that video makes it feel like the beginning of the Oasis. Looks pretty cool.
I feel this way about [Ready Player One](www.amazon.com/Ready-Player-One-ebook/dp/B004J4WKUQ/) RIGHT NOW. I read that book in a cafe in one sitting. Started in the morning, didn't know I'd be exiting at night, and I miss being part of a place that doesn't exist.
If you haven't already check out Ready Player One by Ernest Cline Its an ode to early gaming and the 80s in general. Adventure is a key plot point.
If you haven't already, you should read Ready Player One.

Spielberg didn't do the book cover.
Try Ready Player One. It's about a world that's become obsessed with this virtual game, but there's a conspiracy and an interesting dynamic between online personas and real life. If you like audiobooks, Wil Wheaton narrates. (BONUS! The ebook is on sale for $2.80!) and if you have any passing interest in SF, definitely read The Martian. It has math in it AND I DIDN'T EVEN CARE IT WAS THAT GOOD. Basically, an astronaut gets left behind on a mission to Mars and must survive on his own...
Try <em>Ready Player One</em>. It's SF. It's a Bildungsroman, so it's a good bridge.
I was just about to pick up the Kindle edition, but I notice it's a Random House book. Random House has done a great job of pissing
off Kindle users by disabling TTS on various books and overcharging for e-books. In this case, the Kindle edition is more than the to-be-released paperback.
Unfortunately, I'm going to miss this one.
