Audible is offering a special for the Holiday season. They made it available for Black Friday and Cyber Monday but the truth is that you can take advantage of this offer until December 16th, 2009. For those of you who may not be familiar with Audible it is a downloadable audio book store that was acquired by Amazon back in 2008.
Though downloadable audiobooks can be purchased on a one off basis it seems more centered on subscription membership models for downloadable audio books. Due to Amazon’s reach as well as Audible’s longer history in the audio book market it tends to have a very good selection of audio books particularly when they are newly released.
Audible offers monthly and annual plans ranging from $14.95 to $22.95 per month or $149.50 to $229.50 per year. Their plan is based on the purchase of credits, one credit equals one audio book. If you are an avid listener Audible is a great option. My husband and I have had plans with Audible and have found it quite easy to use. If you plan to move your purchases around you may find it more challenging so check the device compatibility on their website. Here is their current 2009 Christmas special offer:
