Everyone you look to nowadays has no time to enjoy the things they loved to do at leisure. With the everyday hustle and bustle of the world, we've all learnt to multi-task or leave some tasks out of our daily routine. While it may not entail a lot for some, many people often end up cutting out their hobbies such as reading books. However, nowadays, many people also like to cram their free time with other tasks which are more important for them. One of the main reasons why Kindle and e-books have been so popular is because they gave books a mobility which has never been available. People could forgo having to tote around the bulk of a heavy book and the extra space was saved up by a sleek device which was capable of storing enough books to fill a mini-library. Pushing the genre of the mobility of e-books that new technology allows, Amazon.com has now introduced Audible Audio Books which give a new spin to the more common cassette books which were famously popular in their day and age. However, once the cassette player became obsolete, these books had faded out of sight. With their re-resurgence Audio books now give you a revamped version of cassette books which can be accessed through your smart phone. With many bestsellers easily available, you can find out with the help of this e-book how you can access Audible Audio Books whether you're an Amazon member or not.

marleed The full cast of Daisy Jones and the Six is the only time I‘ve ever recommended that if someone read the book they also give the audiobook a listen. 2w
marleed @Sharpeipup I recently listened to the Night Circus read by Jim Dale and had to keep reminding myself I wasn‘t inside a Harry Potter book. I have Jim Dale stereotyped - in a good way! 2w
Birdsong28 This is really good on audiobook 2w
Cinfhen Kevin Hart is probably hilarious @Birdsong28 I‘m definitely going to look out for that one ☝🏾 thanks for the suggestion 2w
Cinfhen I picked up Yes, Please on Hoopla @Susanita and People of the Book is one of my favorite actual books 📖 2w
Cinfhen I could see Daisy Jones being excellent as an audio choice @marleed 2w
Birdsong28 @Cinfhen It is such a good book, it's just like listening to him do stand up. I only got it for 99p as it was in Audible's Christmas daily deals one of the best audiobook I have heard. 📚📖 2w
BarbaraBB I don‘t know if it is available but if so, please get Cassandra at the Wedding. I am soooo sure you‘ll love it (and I can‘t send you my copy as it is part of my NYRB collection) 😃 2w
Cinfhen You‘re so sweet!! It‘s not available but I‘ll keep my eyes open @BarbaraBB 😘😘 2w
toofondofbooks Ready Player One narrated by Will Wheaton, The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, Anything by Neil Gaiman bc he usually does his own narration, The Gentleman Bastard Series, most Stephen King is excellent, anything narrated by Bronson Pinchot, Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Tales, Swan Song by Robert McCammon, Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness 2w

Centique @Bookies not available in my country unfortunately. Many of us on Litsy aren‘t North American. 2w
LeticiaToraci I usually look for new releases that are cheaper to get for the Audible monthly fee than the current book price and listen the probe. One I liked was a series by Jessica Cluess. 2w
LeticiaToraci The name of the trilogy was Kingdom on Fire, YA with fantasy and very well written. 2w
LeticiaToraci Another was a retelling of Frankenstein, The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein. 2w

I just need to vent a little about something that Audible is doing. A couple of days ago, a message appeared on their website claiming that they were changing the way credits worked to give members more flexibility. Today I received an email stating that they were improving my Audible Credits experience. This is indeed NOT the truth. I am on the Annual Platinum plan and have been for over 14 years. This means that each year...(cont.)

rretzler ...I pay an annual fee to receive 24 credits which I can use at any time. Prior to this change, I had the ability to rollover up to 12 of those credits to be used in the next year. Which means that in years I didn‘t listen a lot, I wasn‘t forced to use my credits on books that I may not have wanted. And in years where I listened more, I usually had some rollover credits that I could use. That‘s flexibility, IMO. (cont.) 2mo
rretzler ...Now Audible is telling me that the credits I receive on the first day of my membership will expire one year later on the first day of the next years membership. So I have to use all of my credits within the one year period or I lose them. How is this giving me more flexibility and improving my experience? They also say that now I will receive a monthly email showing how many credits I have. I can already see how many credits...(cont.) 2mo
rretzler ...by looking on the website or app. Why would I need an additional email to tell me what I can see just by logging in. Not to mention that the web or app will have updated information. Ugh-I am so mad that Audible is trying to take a benefit away from me and trying to tell me it is a good thing. I want to let everyone know how terrible I think this is, especially those who are also affected by it. 2mo
See All 17 Comments
EadieB @rretzler You as an already member should keep the same benefits that you started with. These so called new advantages should be for people just signing up. You should ask them what gives them the right to change your benefits mid-stream! Not right at all! 2mo
rretzler I would agree, but just to play devil‘s advocate, the “contract” is only a one year contract, and I become a member again each year when I renew, so I suppose they have the right to change terms and I have the right to decide whether or not I want those terms each year. What galls me is that they‘re trying to insult my intelligence by taking away a benefit and telling me it gives me flexibility and improves my experience. NOT! 2mo
SleepyDragon It sounds to me like they are going to lose a lot of long time subscribers like yourself. It doesn't improve your experience; it pads their profit margin. It is insulting that they don't think subscribers are smart enough to realize that. 2mo
rretzler @SleepyDragon I‘m a retired CPA and that was my initial thought, but upon thinking about it, I‘m not sure that they gain that much of an advantage financially from it. If someone doesn‘t use their credits, Audible doesn‘t get any additional revenue, but I guess they save by not having to pay a royalty to an author. I can‘t think of any other fixed costs that they would be saving and it‘s not like they get more money plus according to most... 2mo
rretzler ...authors, royalties are next to nothing. On the other hand, with the change, they have to reprogram their accounting system for not only the new way credits are accounted for but also how revenue is recognized. And then there is the cost of programming and sending out monthly emails about credits. I‘m not sure what the change is getting them. 2mo
Angeles I really dislike Amazon. My husband uses audible but I buy and rent my audiobooks through downpour. They have a smaller selection but I like them better 😁 2mo
tpixie @rretzler oh wow. I haven‘t read my email yet. I also am a platinum member since forever. I really like being able to roll over my credits. My membership is coming up here also. But I still think it‘s cheaper than buying audiobooks through Apple or other sites. How disappointing 2mo
rretzler @Angeles I‘ll have to check out downpour. I am a big Amazon and Audible fan, so this will be a hard decision for me. Amazon has saved me a lot of money over the years and made my life easier in many ways. Perhaps if Audible had presented it differently it wouldn‘t have made me quite so angry. 2mo
rretzler @tpixie Rolling over credit does take the pressure off, I think. My younger son is mildly dyslexic and prefers audiobooks to print, so I always keep a few credits in reserve for his school reading. Since I never know when or what, it will make trying to plan for using credits more difficult. I agree Audible is cheaper and I really like the Whispersync feature, which i would totally miss if I switched. I‘m sending them an email to share my thoughts 2mo
tpixie @rretzler my 4 kids have dyslexia too, so audiobooks definitely are important! I will email them, too. I also use apps from my library to download audio and ebooks. But I also like to have access to a book when I really want to read it (edited) 2mo
rretzler @tpixie Have you heard of Bookshare and Learning Ally? If you have a qualifying print disability, like poor sight or dyslexia, you can sign up and borrow audiobooks for free. I haven‘t pursued getting my son signed up yet, but I think it‘s time after this Audible credit debacle! 2mo
tpixie We us learning ally ( I sometimes use it too on my last students account- she has used it for nursing school ). The tough part is the readers are not near as good as Audible. But they read text books and novels if you can plan ahead even a semester/ summer ahead and let them know what books you need in theory they will get somebody to tape it for you but it takes a while so you have to plan ahead. I‘ve never tried bookshare. (edited) 2mo
tpixie I just got a email yesterday about a class action suit with Audible did you get one? 2mo
rretzler @tpixie I did get the email. So that explains a lot - someone who didn‘t know how to figure out what was going on with their credits lost some and sued. ☹️ so we have to lose our rollover because of that. In the entire time I was a member, I always knew how many credits I had and when they expired and never lost a credit. So why punish the thousands like me who were also able to figure out the credits. 😠 (edited) 1mo

Question for Audible users: can more than one device be used to access an account? For example can both my husband and I use the account on our respective devices?

Aswenson I believe it‘s 5 devices. My husband logs into my Amazon account on his app on his phone, and my oldest‘s kindle uses the account too. 2mo
Tamra @Aswenson perfect, thank you! 2mo
Ashley_Nicoletto Yes! My mom and I do this. 😊 2mo

intothehallofbooks So far we‘re up to 5 devices on one account with the permission of Audible! My kids and husband and I all use it on our individual devices-we were advised to do this after I chatted with their customer service to see if I could get some sort of family plan package. 😊 2mo
Tamra @intothehallofbooks that is awesome! What are the 2 “originals” that are free a month mean? 2mo
AlaMich My wife and I each have an Audible account but we can “share” all our books. I‘m not sure if that‘s different from what the other commenters are describing. 2mo
saresmoore I‘m glad that the question has already been answered for you! My husband and I share and I love it. As a member, you can also return any book for any reason, even if you listened to the whole thing. 2mo
Dogearedcopy @tamra Audible originals are exclusively produced content for Audible. At the beginning of the month, they offer 6 (?) to chose from and you can pick 2 as part of your subscription for free 🙂 2mo
Gezemice Yes. If you have a family account, your Kindle and audiobooks get shared, you don‘t eben need to use the same account. My husband listens to my audiobooks and I read his Kindle books. 2mo
8little_paws Yeah I share with a friend at work! 2mo

SweetAngst The originals seem only so-so most of the time. I got "Sakina's Restaurant" and the fantasy-looking one "Wishes and Wellingtons." I looked the the Curie one but wasn't a fan of the narrator in the sample ? 3mo

Recommendations Please!

I'm looking to join audible and would love to know what books you loved and/or hated. I've heard the narrator can really make a book. All suggestions appreciated!

BookwormAHN One of my recent favorites was 4mo
Kaye What type books do you like ? I have a truckload on audio and several favorites. 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @kaye I like memoirs, fantasy and love psychological thrillers. 4mo

sprainedbrain For fantasy, try this one... or any book narrated by Steve West 😍 4mo
JeansBookshelf For fantasy try the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. I love it. Hounded is book one 4mo
Birdsong28 I loved the tagged book as it felt like he was just doing a stand up set rather than reading his book 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @sprainedbrain I've heard great things about that book! 4mo
Birdsong28 Also Davina Porter makes the Outlander series 📚📖 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Birdsong28 that sounds right up my alley, thank you! 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @JeanMartin_82 I love anyone by the name Atticus. 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Birdsong28 I have to be carful with Outlander. There are some scenes I just can't stomach. 4mo
Erinreadsthebooks The Poet X was an excellent audiobook experience! 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Erinreadsthebooks Thanks! I'll add it to my list. 4mo
Kaye Memoirs. : When We Were the Kennedys , I‘m Down, Freak Show Without a Tent , Kookooland , Southern Education of a Jersey Girl, Girl Named Zippy , Crapalachia , Driving Miss Norma , Jackie‘s Girl , The Ride of Our Lives , Wildflower by Mark Seal. 4mo
Soubhiville I‘d second The Poet X. I love Robin Hobb on audio- she‘s got a ton of chunkster fantasy books. Ready Player One is great with Wil Wheaten Reading it. Patrick Rothfuss‘ books are also incredible on audio. Don‘t miss Born a Crime! 4mo
cherinium Definitely Born a Crime. @Soubhiville is right about that and Ready Player One. Also, I recently listened to To Kill a Mockingbird with Sissy Spacek and loved her interpretation of Scout. The Martian and Artemis both have fantastic narration, as does It. I also recently loved the narrator for Beartown. 4mo
Victoriahoperose I really liked The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn on audio. A discovery of witches by Deborah hardness was great. I liked After Anna by Lisa Scottoline, A life in parts by Bryan Cranston and with love from the inside by Angela pessl! 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Soubhiville @cherinium I love Ready Player One and had no idea Will Wheaten did the audio narration. That makes it even more tempting. 4mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Victoriahoperose I've heard great things about Angela Pessl! I've read Woman in the Window and it was fantastic. 4mo
Susannah I totally agree with @Birdsong28 regarding Davina Porter‘s narration of Outlander. I only listened to the first book, but she was phenomenal. She also narrates The Mists of Avalon. 4mo
TheSpineView I loved the Illuminae series on audio. It was a full cast which I love. If you like Will Wheaton he narrates other books. Especially for John Scalzi of which I loved Lock In 4mo
Soubhiville Oh @TheSpineView I didn‘t know Wheaten did any Scalzi books! Obsessively going to reserve all of them now! Thank you! 3mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView @Soubhiville well now I have to jump on the party wagon and listen to them too! I love Will's voice. 3mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView I love the thought of a full cast narration 3mo
TheSpineView @Soubhiville You're welcome! 😊 3mo
TheSpineView @Whimsical.Curiosity 😊 3mo
TheSpineView @Whimsical.Curiosity I love the different voices. It is much better than the narrator just doing voices. 3mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView although I haven't listened to my first book yet, I can see this being much more enjoyable. 3mo
ReadingRover The best audiobook ever!!! It‘s hysterical. 3mo
DannyHattan The whole wheel of time series is great on audible 👌🏻🙌🏻😊 3mo
WhatThePuck The Book of Lost Things has by far been my favorite. If you want weeks long listens definitely give Outlander and A Discovery of Witches a try. Maybe you should start the Grishaverse with Six of Crows! I can probably lend you the first 3. I don't have Six of Crows. I do have Shadow and Bone. 3mo

KathyWheeler I use both. Sometimes the library doesn‘t have the audiobook I‘m in the mood to listen to. That said, because of the library, I‘m not always buying extra Audible credits. 4mo
Cspen113 @KathyWheeler I was wondering about how expensive this would end up being for me. Are there good deals on Audible? Most I saw looked like they were just below the cost of a hardback. 4mo
KathyWheeler @Cspen113 There are good deals; they have daily deals and they have sales. You can also purchase extra credits if you don‘t want to wait until your next credit rolls around. It‘s generally $30something to get 3 credits; last month though it was $20something. 4mo

Kaye That‘s great ! Our Audible is currently having a sale, although it‘s only on a limited number of fiction books. It‘s get 2 books for I credit, but they have to be off their list. I bought a couple Stephen King ones since they‘re long. More book for the money. (edited) 9mo

I read alllllll day today and it was glorious. So I decided to take it a step further.... make these purchases on audible. I don't know if I'll keep the service after this month, but $6 a book was too good pass up.

CoffeeNBooks I thought Victoria was great! 10mo

I also listen while I browse the interwebs, when I want a book but don‘t want to read a physical one.

I was going to cross off gardening ... and then I realized I listened to the Storied Life of A.J. Fickery while planting basil like 3 hours ago 😂 once I start I‘m never not listening unless I‘m working ... most things crossed off are simply things I don‘t do!

Also play around on social media and as I fall asleep 😴 but these are great!

BethwithBooks ****except for shower 🚿 I promise I shower I just have a hard time hearing the book over the water 11mo

I‘m contemplating this offer. Reasonable deal? I haven‘t listened as much to #audiobooks lately but I could stand to do some #audiowalking . I have a Kindle Fire HD 8 from 2015 but I almost never use it. I know there are frequent #Kindle sales but this still seems like a decent deal at $129. Any thoughts? #audible #amazon

Okay! I need to do chores but all I want to do is read. I have decided to try #audible and I‘m wondering what recommendations my fellow littens might have. I have reservations about audiobooks, and so I‘m leaving myself in your hands! #recommendations #audiobooks #audiocleaning

FeastOfFiction I‘m such a visual person that I rarely do audiobooks, but if they‘re good enough I can! 13mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled born a crime was great on audio! Also, Belgravia was well done too 13mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Oh! And Where‘d You Go, Bernadette was a great audiobook! Ok - Im done now! 🤐 13mo

Redjewel_7734 The Flavia de Luce mysteries are cute & fun (The first in the series is The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie). I also enjoy Jenny Lawson‘s memoirs & the Themis files are a great listen (Sleeping Giants, Waking Gods, & Only Human). 13mo
AmyG Insomnia read by Eli Wallach. 13mo
Jabberwocky @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled @Redjewel_7734 @AmyG thank you all for your suggestions!!! 13mo

Im having an “old person programming the time on a VCR” moment! So i signed up for a free 30 day Audible trial. It says one free credit. Sooooo that means i only get one book for the whole 30 day trial?!!? Someone explain how this works to me please 🤣

Jadams1776 Yes, you can use your credit for one book. You can buy other books during your trial, but you‘ll pay for them. I use my credits for the more expensive books and pay if they‘re around $14 (your monthly fee). I like to shop the 2 for 1 credit sales and the daily deals. 13mo
Jadams1776 I used my trial credit to purchase the Complete Sherlock Holmes narrated by Stephen Fry. It was around $50, but only one credit. 13mo
Jadams1776 And if you watch the amazon daily deals, sometimes you can get the ebook and Audible book for a reduced price. A lot of other Littens post the daily deals here, so keep an eye out for that 13mo

bookish_wookish Ok! Thanks! So i can get more for free if i pay the $14.95 monthly? @Jadams1776 13mo
mrozzz You‘ll get another 1 credit each month and sometimes have the option of buying more credits, which is cool because as @Jadams1776 mentions, you can get the audiobooks that stay at $20+ for only $14 13mo
bookish_wookish it seems worth it! @mrozzz 13mo
Jadams1776 @bookish_wookish There are a variety of plan options that give you more credits a month, but of course they cost you more. I suggest spending sometime browsing the selection and adding books to your wishlist on Audible while on your 30 day trial. If anything you have on your wishlist goes on sale, you should get an email about it 😉 13mo
bookish_wookish Thank you! @Jadams1776 it makes sense now! 13mo
Jadams1776 @bookish_wookish I‘ve had Audible for over a year and I love it. Definitely worth it, especially when you learn how to make the most of your credits! 13mo
Jadams1776 @bookish_wookish Glad I could help! 13mo
8little_paws You can also use scribd for audiobooks. It's $8.95 a month, but unlike audible you don't keep the books. It's like paying for access to a digital library. I love it. If you're interested I have a link for 2 free months. 13mo
bookish_wookish maybe ill try it after my month with Audible! Thanks! @8little_paws 13mo

Alright Littens, talk #audible to me! I don‘t listen to audiobooks a whole lot. I prefer to actually read and my commute isn‘t very long. Is Audible region locked (I‘m in Europe)? Is it worth the monthly fee if you use it fairly little?
I just tried Blinkst, but I think I like actual audiobooks better.

RaimeyGallant Libby!!!!! 14mo
RaimeyGallant I'm going to invest in audible later, but I connected my library card to Libby, which is overdrive's app, and I'm loving all the audiobooks. 14mo
