Audiobooks are an excellent resource for readers who wish to continue reading even when they don't have a book in their hands. Audiobooks have two advantages: they don't cause any eyestrain at all, and they can be heard while you perform trivial activities, such as washing dishes or driving. A study by the University of Southern California stated that listening to audiobooks in the car for 60.000 kms. is the equivalent to a two-years master degree.
Audible is a platform with a wide catalog of audiobooks. They offer a first audiobook for free, as well as memberships with discounts and special offers during the year. Books can be listened via straming, through iTunes, or using Audible apps. These apps allow increasing or diminishing the narration speed, so the book can be adapted to personal rythm of anyone.
Choosing the right market is very important when opening a new account. Audible.co.uk is not the same as Audible.com, and audiobooks downloaded in the first can't be heard in the app of the second, for example.
