Audiobooks



  • I would like to sign up for Audible, but looks like on the monthly plans of around $14 you can only use 1 book. Also looking at the Amazon prime membership which i believe includes Audible and unlimited prime reading (with audible narration). Just wanted to know what you guys use.

    I've always used the annual platinum plan.



  • The "free" audible with Prime is very limited in scope, you'd have to subscribe to the full Audible to get audiobooks.

    That said I drive, like a lot, 2 hours each way to work everyday. And audio books are a big part of what keeps me sane. If I went the audible way then I would be bankrupt pretty quickly.

    Libraries are a good place to get audio books, but I still go through them faster than I can get them, though most libraries have online digital checkout options for audio books, so check with your local library on that.

    When all else fails I torrent audio books. I belong to a private torrent community that does nothing but audio books. It has come in very handy.

    I really wish someone would start a Netflix type audiobook service, and all you can listen to flat rate service.

    Not bad for a free public domain audiobooks.

    4 hours of drive! What else you do during that long drive?

    I like the idea of a Netflix kind service, but if you look at it Amazon probably covers a huge library of books! I wish Audible had an unlimited book options on a flat rate.
