There is nothing like a good story book! And unlike a common paper book, audiobooks bring such story books to life in a new and magical way. In fact, audiobooks are almost primal in the way that they take a written story and bring it to life with oral storytelling – as if you were among the first people on this earth, gathered around a campfire and listening to the stories told by the family surrounding you. After all, the spoken word is the earliest form of teaching among humans!
So, what part does Audible play in this magic? Audible is an American-based online service that lets you download and listen to both audiobooks and podcasts. Headquartered in Newark, New Jersey, Audible is run by the multinational tech company, Amazon. As you can imagine, it is therefore one of the biggest and most well-known audiobook subscription services currently available.
Audible is the America’s largest audiobook producer and retailer – Audible listeners have access to a huge library of over 400 000 titles, from familiar beloved classics to brand new releases, to original content found only on Audible (known as ‘Audible Originals’)! You can sit back, relax and listen as your favourite books are read aloud by a narrator, the author themself, a celebrity, or even a performing audio cast!
Now that that has caught your attention, how exactly does Audible work?
Audible works through individual purchases or through a credit-based subscription model. This means that content can be purchased and listened to individually, or the user can subscribe to receive monthly ‘credits’ that can be redeemed for whatever content they choose.
To put this credit-based subscription simply:
Besides your one free audiobook every month, Audible also lets you listen to any audiobooks from its Plus Catalogue. The Plus Catalogue is a growing selection of free audiobooks, Audible Originals, and podcasts that all Audible listeners have unlimited access to at any time! Currently, this catalogue has over 11 000 options for you to choose from. Note that Plus Catalogue has an ‘included’ tag.
Audible is accessible by internet browser or by the Audible app – and the app is compatible with almost every device. All you need is an Amazon account. Simply login to the Audible app or go to www.amazon.co.uk to access your account and get started with Audible.
Audible offers a whole range of features. As an Audible listener you get:
• One credit* every month to access any audiobook you like, no matter the price. This audiobook is yours to keep forever – even if you decide to cancel your subscription. • Access to the Plus Catalogue. This is a fantastic collection of audiobooks, originals, and podcasts for you to enjoy without limit. • Exclusive subscriber deals.
*Note that the number of credits you get every month depends on your Audible subscription plan.
You can sign up for Audible by going to www.amazon.com, creating an Amazon account, and downloading the Audible app. If you already possess an Amazon account, you just need to sign in.
Once you have signed in, any available credits you have will be shown in the top right-hand corner.
The cost of Audible depends on what subscription plan you choose. At the moment, Audible has four basic membership plans. You can have a look at these below:
• Audible Plus – $7.95 per month. This option gives you one credit every month.
• Audible Premium Plus – $14.95 per month. This option gives you two credits every month.
• Audible Premium Plus - 2 credits – $22.95 per month
• Audible Premium Plus Annual - 12 credits - $149.50 per year. This option gives you 24 books every year and is the best value for money.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can set up an “Amazon Household” group which enables you to share your Audible Premium Plus content with another person. So, instead of spending $14.95 a month, you’d only spend $7.48 a month.
