Audiobooks

Audiobooks were once considered a costly luxury that most people could only splurge on. But today, audiobooks are an excellent way to be entertained while you're on the road, on a lunch break, or listening quietly with your children.

Within the last few years, iPods and MP3 players have become a common gadget in most homes. With numerous improvements in technology and functionality, listening to audiobooks with these players is both simple and cheap. Never before has it been easier to listen to an audiobook.

To accommodate the popularity of audiobooks, many online stores now offer thousands of audiobooks either in a downloaded format, on a CD, or sometimes even an old-fashioned cassette tape. Audiobooks can even be rented and returned like a movie.

Services that provide audiobooks vary greatly in form and function. Some services involve monthly membership plans; in others you must make individual audiobook purchases; and still others provide audiobook rentals. There are indeed a variety of options that are made to suit your individual needs.

However, not all audiobook stores are the same. It's important that you consider a few necessary points before you sign up for a service, or purchase an audiobook. Some critical factors to consider include:

  • Formats Available. Does the company offer downloadable MP3 formatted copies of their audiobooks, or only CD's?
  • Selection. Will you find all the latest and classic audiobooks that you're looking for? Or is the selection limited?
  • Price. How do the audiobook prices at each store compare to their competition?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best audiobooks stores available today. We hope this information helps you with your next audiobook purchase!
