Ready to check out audiobooks?
If you already have a dedicated audiobook store, that's where you should get your books! But if you're in the market for a new store or haven't ever bought an audiobook before, here's a quick guide about how to get my audiobooks.
I have many of my audiobooks available on Bandcamp. You can listen to each book in the free Bandcamp app for Android or iOS, and you can listen through your web browser as well with no need to download an app.
Why get books through Bandcamp?
- I get a bigger cut of the sales price than at other stores
- I'm able to offer these books at a slightly cheaper price because of that
- I can offer bonuses like including the ebook with the audiobook
Your preferred ebook store:
You are probably already familiar with a specific ebook retailer, and many of them offer audiobooks! So if you want to test out audiobooks, you can purchase them at your regular ebook store and enjoy them in that store's audiobook listening app.
Standalone audiobook stores
Chirp is a growing audiobook store powered by the people who run Bookbub. They offer great deals on audiobooks and you can often get a steep discount.
Libraries have been rapidly expanding their selection of audiobooks through services like Overdrive, Hoopla, and Bibliotheca. You'll need to check with your specific library about how they handle audiobooks, but it's likely they have some sort of option. Then you can request my books through your library. You get to read 100% for free!
There are also paid subscription services that offer you access to audiobooks. Scribd, LibroFM, Audible, and Audiobooks.com are a few of the places that offer subscriptions. Each subscription service works a little differently, so you'll need to look up the terms if you're thinking of subscribing.
I recommend Scribd.
