Understanding Amazon Audible

This audiobook service is provided by Amazon and offers users access to a huge range of book titles within various different genres. The offering includes everything from classic novels, all the way through to unique podcasts. With a membership to Audible, users are able to either stream content live or download it to an electronic device in order to enjoy at a later date.

With the service, there is the option to have the books on there read out by the author, a narrator, or by a famous celebrity. Some of the podcasts that are provided through the service have famous hosts themselves, including Alan Partridge and Michael Caine.

How Does It Work?

When signing up to audible, you are given credits to spend on books. The better the plan that you sign up to, the more of these credits that you get.

All of the original podcasts that can be found on Audible can be streamed without any limitations. There are also various unique offers presented to subscribers each and every month, as well as deals that give you as much as 80 percent of a title of your choice.

What Devices Does It Work On?

Although the service can be accessed on the Internet via a web browser, for the best results, it is advisable to download and use the Audible app instead. This can be put onto any type of electronic device, including smartphones and tablets. In order to be able to do any of this though, you must have an Amazon account. Although most people do already have one of these, if you do have to set one up, then do not worry as it is completely free of charge.

How Much Does It Cost?

Depending on the exact plan that you sign up to, Audible costs anywhere between £7.99 for a month’s subscription and £109.99 for a year’s. When on the most basic plan, subscribers get a single book credit for each and every month. In contrast to this, those signed up to the top plan, are given 24 book credits to cover them for the entire year. 

For anyone that is a student, Audible does provide a certain level of discount to them. To get this offer, follow the link -

There is also the option to try the service completely free of charge for 30 days. This allows you to get a taster for it without having to commit to signing up to one of the subscription plans.

How To Cancel A Subscription?

At the end of the plan that you have selected, your subscription will automatically renew itself. The same thing is true for the free 30 day trial that is available to new users. For anyone that has used this service, it is important to be aware of this fact, as you do not want to be automatically signed up to Audible if you have no interest in doing so or cannot afford to use the service.
