    Who uses audible.com?

    Has it been worth it? What kind of plan do you use? I think I would listen to several books a month, but audiobook prices are so expensive. But I need to get mindless stuff done!

    I check out audiobooks from the library. It's much, much easier than it used to be.

    My Mom ha audible and I use her account, too, but we don't always have the same taste. She likes it a lot and she and my Dad listen to LOTS of audiobooks.

    Have you looked into what your local library has?

    My husband uses it. He is an over the road driver, so he uses it a lot. Totally worth the cost for him.

    I use Audible. Sometimes you can buy a kindle book and get an audio upgrade pretty cheaply. I also use my library and Amazon Prime books (or whatever it is called). I rarely read a book (with my eyes)... almost always audio.

    I check out audio books from my library's app. Selection is decent and it is free!

    I "read" one book a month, and sometimes I get behind on that. Listening to the GoT books takes freaking forever!

    Also, there's some free stuff you can listen to on there that's nice, like there's a morning digest of the NYT.

    I'm still amazed that some people still call these things "books on tape".

    Nope, I don't use them.

    It's like kleenex or xerox or the "save icon"!

    We used our library a ton in Germany for audio books. We got some books on DVD, and many more through overdrive. Free!
