One Word… Audiobooks
Now, a major reason that many of us don’t sit down and open up a book or pick up a pen is that it can be difficult to allocate time in our hectic schedules – which is, of course, understandable. But, fortunately, the literary world has evolved hugely from physical books alone and now you can listen to your favourite novels, poetry and autobiographies while on the go!
If this appeals, some great audiobook platforms to consider are:
It’s unlikely that you haven’t heard of Audible, but perhaps you haven’t fully considered it. Audible is a strain of the Amazon company – meaning you’ll never be short of choice when it comes to picking a new title. The monthly subscription weighs in at £7.99 a month and includes a free title each month.
The platform also boasts some added benefits, such as; exclusive offers, access to original podcasts and offline listening ability.
Google Play Audiobooks
Whilst, Audible might be more well-known, Google is never far behind. The platform hosts its own audiobook service that similarly offers a wide array of titles across several devices. The platform comes with no monthly subscription fee, so if you’re looking for something a tad more relaxed, then this could be an ideal choice.
If you’re still not convinced and are worried about cost, then perhaps Kobo could be a better fit. The service offers a lower subscription cost in comparison to Amazon’s audible at £6.99 – however, the platform additionally offers a 30% offer for your first three months. So, you’ll be able to ensure that it’s ticking all of the boxes without breaking the bank.
