Audiobooks

Rating: 5 out of 5

In this test, Audiobooks is number one because of its enormous selection, as well as its user-friendly interface. With Audiobooks you can find more than 125.000 audiobooks (so shouldn’t you be able to find something intriguing?).

Audiobooks works the same way as Audible. With a subscription you can chose one audiobook a month. If you want to listen to more than one book within a month, you have to buy the next one; however, at a very reasonable price. In turn, you will have access to your chosen books forever (even if you cancel your subscription). You can try Audiobooks for free for thirty days, which means that you can get one audiobook completely free.

Price: Around £11 a month.
