As many of you know, I received a Cochlear Ear Implant last year. One of the things that the Dr told me to do to help me learn to hear was to listen to audiobooks while reading the books at the same time. I was all excited to be able to hear the books until I saw the price. With the library, it ‘s hard to have both the audiobook and the book you read at the same time. I did not want to BUY an audiobook. I mean what was I gonna do with them? Maybe if I already had the book you read with your eyes, then it might sound like a good deal but if it is just a book from the library and I only get to keep the audiobook? I don’t think so.
For that reason, I did not listen to that many audiobooks. I also did not look at Audibles website to closely because I thought there was nothing in it for me. Then one day I was looking around the app when I saw something called “channels.”It turned out to be free audiobooks! Well free if you are a prime member which I am. This was perfect! I could check out the books and read along with them on Audible. Then I was afraid that there wouldn’t be any good books to listen to. I did not need to worry. At the time that I am writing this, there are around 40 books and they are actually books that I would read such as
- Stitches by Anne Lamott
- Watership Down by Richard Adams
- Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
- The Good Girl By Mary Kubica
These and more are some of the titles that I can’t wait to get to. One word of note though this book is for streaming only. You know how when you listen to Spotify you can listen to the song as many time as you want as long as you pay the 9 dollars monthly fee? Well, the same is true of these books. You can’t download them onto your device but as long as you have a good internet or LTE connection you should be fine. Also, this is available only to Prime members. If you do not have Prime then may I ask WHY? Get PRIME NOW! In all seriousness though I am glad that they have some audiobooks available for free. Now to decide if I want that Audible subscription.
