Review on Audible

The Audible app is available on phones, tablets, and desktops. You can download Audible for both your android and iOS devices.

I use this app mostly on my Apple iPhone, and because my phone is always with me, I can listen to Audible audiobooks while commuting, during my gym session or when out for a run. More recently, Ive started listening to Audible audiobooks using Alexa.

In other words, I can read and do something else at the same time. The Audible app makes it easier for me to spend more time reading and finishing great titles.

Even if you have an Android smartphone or tablet, the Audible app works smoothly.

I particularly like that you can slow down or speed up the play-speed of each audiobook. For readers (or listeners) who want to immerse themselves in a story when listening to audiobooks, this is a welcome feature.

Well, you can buy titles individually on Audible or pay a monthly fee. As Im based in Ireland, I pay Audible just over EUR10 each month for a credit. I can use this credit to buy any audiobook on Audible.

Typically, it works out cheaper for me to buy membership credits as some audiobooks cost upwards of EUR20/USD20. Audible also regularly offer promotions and deals for members (who pay a recurring membership fee) whereby you can pick up classics for as little as 99 cents.

Recently, Ive listened to the audiobooks Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg and On Writing by Stephen King. These are just two examples of where the author in question is also the narrator of his or her book.

Whereas before I was skeptical of reading this way, now I believe theres something intimate about having the author of a book read it to you the way he or she intends.

While chatting to an Audible rep, I mentioned I didnt like an audiobook Id bought a few months previously. There are many alternatives to Audible as well - https://beebom.com/best-audible-alternatives/. Audible refunded me the cost of the book, no questions asked.
