If, like me, you've rinsed through every possible playlist combination on Spotify, can't have Netflix on 24/7 and need something to keep your brain entertained during your working hours, then audiobooks could be your new best friend.
Similarly, if you want to spend your spare time getting acquainted with the books you always swore you'd read, but never had time to, audiobooks are a winner.
Narrated by some of our favourite people on the planet (looking at you, Stephen Fry), there's a wealth of audiobooks out there just waiting to be discovered. What's more, you can even try out Amazon Audible FREE for 30 days, to see if you like what you hear.
What's so good about Audible?
Not only is the 30 day free trial rather attractive, but it's only £7.99 per month thereafter, which is cheaper than buying a new book outright. You'll get daily discounts on books, so you can build up your collection.
You'll receive access to audiobooks, original series and more on the free app, you own your books even if you cancel your subscription and you can swap any book you're not feeling.
There's unlimited listening to documentaries, comedies and more, plus you can listen online or offline, saving your precious data if you need to.
