1 Free Audiobook

"You can try an Audible membership completely free for 14 days, and choose any of our 50,000 titles for free. There's no obligation - cancel any time before your free trial is over and you will not be charged the monthly fee."


I found it impossible to find the cancel membership button, and was so sure i had done it until i realised that they had taken out 3 months worth of payment and when i rung up they said well u haven't cancelled as u don't have some cancellation number! Personally i don't think its worth the free audiobook!


As with all XKCD comics mouse over the image to reveal the text. In this case:

"I spent more time trying to get an audible.com audio book playing than it took to listen to the book. I have lost every other piece of DRM-locked music I have paid for."

Im actually a member on audible... It isvery easy to use and you dont lose the books if you switch OS or whatever else. So commenting on it without using it is just plain rubbish.

You can redownload the books at any point from the account library, you can stream them online, you can download directly into itunes or other media players, you can listen in Audible Manager. If you want a free audiobook then.. you get what you give, if you actually like listening to them, then its worth a look. A better offer is:
getting £50 off a electronics device on Amazon combined with the free audiobook. Though you need to sign up for a year for that. It adds up pretty well (like £4 per audiobook for 12 audiobooks).

Back to the original point, some of the easiest software I have used... you do need to phone up to cancel, though that isnt hard either...
