How to Get Audiobook for Free And Save On Subscription Fees. With the introduction of Amazon Audible, a new option to read the book has opened –Listen to the book. However in order to do so you need to pay a small fees every month.
The Amazon Audible can be accessed two way, either you need to be Amazon Prime Member – Prime subscribers can access a dedicated section of Channels called Audiobook Collections. While it’s free for the prime members, it allows limited entry to Amazon’s giant Audible library. Furthermore, your choices are limited only to the upcoming new books that Amazon thinks you should read. Not many options there.
Sign-up for Audible – for a small monthly fees of $14.95, you can sign-up for Amazon Audible and gain access to many audible books. However one must remember, this is not a golden ticket, rather you are limited to only one FREE book per month. If you want more than 1 book, you have to purchase it. Being a subscriber, you will receive upto 30% discount than non-members but that’s pretty much it.
Many book lovers wonder if there is 3rd option that doesn’t require you to pay monthly fees and rather find something Free without any strings attached. Book readers find peace in reading the book. It’s more like personal time, an opportunity to live the life of the book characters. Disconnect yourself with the real world and immerse into the fantasy land. I am sure this mindset is not meant for searching the deals or exploring avenues to maximize benefits out of subscription services. That is where Libby is born.
