Audible for free
The audiobook membership service hosts the world's largest selection of audiobooks and “premium spoken-word entertainment”, according to Amazon. Membership includes unlimited listening to the Plus Catalogue – thousands of Audible Originals, podcasts and select audiobooks.
Audible membership includes a credit every month, applicable to any audiobook, regardless of its price or length. Prime members can claim two audiobooks as a part of the trial.
You get to keep the books for life, even if you cancel – which you can at any time, including the day before the third month if you no longer wish to continue as a member paying full price membership.
Members also get unlimited listening to a huge selection of Audible Original Podcasts, at no extra cost.
Outside of the membership, audiobooks cost considerably more from Audible via Amazon. For example, Barack Obama’s A Promised Land autobiography will set you back a whopping $39 or £49.
