How to nab TWO free audiobooks in Audible’s one-month free trial

Beach reads begone – the beach listen is the way forward this summer

The heady summer months are upon us, and whether you’re heading to Cyprus or your local park, there’s no better way to kick back and relax than with a good book. Thank goodness, then, for Audible, which is offering new customers a free audiobook in its one-month free trial – and two for Amazon Prime customers.

Bookworms – or should that be audiophiles – new to the platform can sign up for a 30-day free trial to cash in on a free audiobook (again, two for Prime members), picking from a world class range of fiction and non-fiction. Been mulling over forking out for Michelle Obama’s Becoming? Now’s your chance (and the audiobook is narrated by none other than the former first lady herself). Missed out on 2018’s Sally Rooney mania? Here’s your perfect opportunity to delve in.

Audible isn’t just great for the beach either; whether you’re driving, on the tube, or working out, audiobooks are a great way of engaging your brain without engaging your hands.

That’s where the mighty – and hitherto underappreciated – audiobook comes in.

Once the 30-day trial has elapsed, Audible costs £7.99 per month, cheaper than Netflix’s new standard tariff – and altogether more enriching. Plus, you’ll get one free audiobook a month, along with exclusive access to events, deals and promotions and unlimited listening to Audible Original Podcasts at no extra cost.

If you do decide the platform’s not for you, you can cancel without paying a single penny. What’s not to like?
