In response to the launch of Google audiobooks, Audible, an Amazon-owned audiobook service, is running a one-week promotion that’s more attractive than the company’s Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017 deal.
Until January 28, almost 200 audiobooks formerly featured as Audible’s Daily Deals, can be purchased at prices ranging from $0.99 (what’s rare ever for discounted Audible titles) to $3.95.
A majority of titles are priced between $2 and $3. Having in mind that regular prices of audiobooks are much higher than ebooks, the price cuts on some titles are even 90% deep.
You can buy Audible audiobooks either in the Audible online store or via Amazon. The company will prompt you to try the subscription service, displaying $0.00 under every title, but you can simply ignore it.
Among the best titles, you’ll find J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit from Recorded Books, narrated by Rob Inglis. Lasting over 11 hours, this unabridged audiobook costs now $3.95 instead of
$27.99, what means 85% price drop.
An even deeper discount is offered on Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman, with the narration by Lenny Henry. The regular price of
$30.79 is now brought down to as low as $3.95.
There are almost 200 other titles to choose from, in eight popular categories, including mystery, science-fiction, romance, nonfiction, and young adult literature.
This Audible sale lasts until January 28, 2018, unless the company decides to prolong it. It’s quite possible, having in mind the audiobook ecosystem from Google offers a much simpler and user-friendly approach that doesn’t require or prompt you to subscribe.
