Audiobooks.com doesn’t just want to sit around as Audible rules the audiobooks market. Rather, it wants to pro-actively bring new users to its service and to that end they’re launching two audiobook subscription plans designed to “provide audiobook fans with an affordable way to access great listens instantly.” For just $14.95 a month, members can choose a single audiobook from Audiobooks.com’s database of more than 25,000 titles and listen to it on their smartphone, tablet or computer. Or if that’s not enough for them, try out the slightly more expensive $22.95/month option that gives them two audiobooks per month.
Here’s what you should know if you’re new to audiobooks:
Audiobooks are a great way for people with busy schedules to make time for new books and classic literature. Busy moms, commuters and others can listen to classics like The Hobbit and Les Misérables as well as contemporary best-sellers like Tina Fey’s Bossypants, the Divergent trilogy and thousands of other books, all compellingly narrated to put listeners in the middle of the story.
Personally I’m listening to audiobooks while in the gym or when doing dull tasks around the house. It’s a great way to make things much more interesting and learn something new along the way…
