Help With Audible/audiobook service
Old 06-15-2022, 06:36 PM

Iíve never had a need to use Audible, but I find myself wanting to buy some audiobooks as the 2 digital public libraries have almost a 5 month wait for them.

So, Iím looking at Audible. Is a monthly/yearly subscription required? Can I not just buy a book as I want/need it? If itís subscription only, Iím not really interested.

Can anyone recommend an audiobook service that allows me to purchase and download books without committing to a subscription?

Thanks in advance!

You can easily buy audible books from Amazon. Search for the book, then check the audiobook option. You can buy 1 at a time without joining Audible (which Amazon now owns), but they’re more expensive that way.

Check Chirp first.

I believe the first 3 books on Audible are free, and you don't have to commit to a subscription.

You can check a few out for free before purchasing a subscription, I think:

I use Audible for books I want to listen to more than once and books I can't borrow from Hoopla or Libby.They give you a free month with one free book. They also offer deals. I ended my subscription and they offered me three months at half price.
