The growth is likely due to the convenience of Bluetooth-powered hands-free kits, which make listening to a book on the go — as opposed to reading it — easier than ever.

By far one of the most popular ways to access and listen to these audiobooks is through Audible, one of the largest audiobook services out there today.

What is audible?

Audible is Amazon’s audiobook and podcast service that sells and produces spoken audio content.

The service is over 25 years old but has only gained popularity in the last decade.

While Audible offers a wide range of content, including radio and television programming, it’s best known for its vast library of what used to be called “books on tape” — now known as digital audiobooks.

While the most popular content on Audible is book-length material, the service also offers shorter monthly Audible Originals, podcasts, sleep tracks, and meditation classes.

The service is available online via your preferred browser or can be downloaded as an app for Android or iOS. It is also available on Kindle devices.

How does Audible work?

At Audible you can choose from thousands of book titles from almost every genre in existence.

Whenever you see an audiobook you like, you can easily buy it from Audible website or app and it will be yours forever.

However, if you plan to listen to a lot of audiobooks, it may be cheaper to get an Audible subscription.

This means you can choose one or two titles per month (depending on the subscription you choose) and also get discounts on hundreds of other titles.

As a member, you get unlimited access to countless audiobooks and podcasts in the Audible Plus catalog, including Audible Original podcasts and new releases.

Is Audible free?

While a free trial of Audible is currently available 30 days available in the UKAudible is not a free service.

Typically, Audible has four membership plans:

  • 1 Book Monthly Membership: £7.99/month
  • 12 books annual membership: £69.99/year
  • 2 Book Monthly Membership: £14.99/month
  • 24 books annual membership: £109.99/year

Depending on the option you choose, more audiobooks can be added to your library each month or year at no additional cost.

You can add more titles, but you have to pay extra for it. And with your monthly subscription, you get a bunch of discounts on a bunch of different titles.

Once you’ve purchased a book, either through your subscription or directly, it’s yours forever, even if you cancel your membership.

However, you don’t need a subscription to buy an audiobook. You can add Audible to your Amazon account or just register an Amazon account for Audible and pay full price for it.
