Today I decided to try out Audible.com on a whim. Sometimes when you’re editing meta tags and doing maintenance SEO tasks, you have the capacity to digest some information and audiobooks are a phenomenal way to do it. I used to work at a library briefly, and I found audiobooks to be a godsend. Once in a while, the library would have a book out for which I was looking and I wondered what alternatives there were. Eventually I found Audible.com. Audible.com comes with a free trial and two free books! For those of us that like to read but just don’t have the time or capacity, this is a cost-effective way to do it.
In addition to listening via the website, Audible has applications to keep you listening while on the go. And, somewhat to my surprise, it syncs with Alexa so you can listen to your books on the Echo. The catalog is incredibly extensive, too, so your free-trial books are a steal.
I started my free trial with 48 Laws of Power, a world renowned book, and started loading my wish list of books. Many of the books are heavily discounted outside of your free credits, though you earn one free credit per month. This is a great way to supplement your personal library of books, paper or audio, or to get your hands on a copy of a book that your local library may not have (yet). The genre selection was excellent, too. Personally, I’m really digging the collection of Science Fiction and non-fiction that Audible has to offer.
So if reading isn’t your thing but you have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, or if audiobooks are just totally up your alley, hop on over to Audible.com and peruse their selection. With your free trial, you’ll find all sorts of things that will tickle your fancy. Reading, or books themselves rather, is/are the path to knowledge. And knowledge is sexy.
