I love audiobooks, since they allow me to “read” while doing other things, like doing mindless household chores or working on craft projects. With the Echo, they’re even better because you don’t have to download the audiobook first, you can play any title in your Audible library instantly, on demand. Did you know you can try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks with a free, 30-day trial to see if you’ll want to make audiobooks a regular part of your life? If you’re not sold, just be sure to cancel your Audible membership before the trial ends (you’ll still get to keep your two free Audible books!). Set a reminder on your calendar if you want to be sure not to miss the free trial expiration date, and if you still miss it by just a day or two, you can always contact Amazon Customer Support (Amazon owns Audible) to cancel, and reverse any charges that may have been incurred once the free trial ended. If you’ve never tried Audible, I recommend the full-cast performance of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book as one of your trial picks – you can start a free Audible trial right from the linked page.
