Yesterday, as I was trawling the vast expanses of that there world wide web, I came across audiobooks.com a website that, as its name suggests offers shed loads of audiobooks. Audiobooks are not something I usual consider myself as being somewhere between a techhead and a traditionalist. I either opt for books I can touch and hold or for e-books for their convenience. I didn’t know how I would react to having someone read a book to me.
Audiobooks.com offered a free seven-day trial where you get your first book free, so I thought why not? There’s nothing to lose and I do so like the whole free thing.
Signing up was as easy as you would expect it to be, click here, enter details there etc. it wasn’t long before I could download my first free book. There are a lot of books to choose from, so it took me a while to decide. Eventually, I figured I should choose a classic, a book that I am familiar with just to see if my brain could accept someone reading it to me. I chose The Time Machine by H. G. Wells, a damn good book certainly one of my favourites and I knew I would be critical towards the audiobook version.
Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised. The narrator was doing a darn good attempt at a Victorian English accent, and I found myself getting sucked into the story as I always do. An hour or so passed and I was still firmly into the story, and with no hint of boredom.
On the whole, I found audiobooks.com a good site to deal with. They have a huge amount of books and depending on how many audiobooks you can get through per month, there are different monthly plans you can sign up for. If you can’t go anywhere without a book, but don’t always have your hands and eyes free for paper books or e-books, it might be worth giving audiobooks.com a try.
