Amazon, books, product complaints

Audible Originals

I’ve sent plenty of money to Amazon via my subscription to Audible.com.

This is probably my last year.

The IOS app is lousy.

Books are overpriced in my opinion. I pay about US $10 each by taking advantage of special deals.

In 2020 almost every audio book I want is available through my library — so long as I’m willing to wait a few weeks.

Like every subscription service, Audible has tried since 2016 to keep my business by including original content unavailable elsewhere. Podcasts. Novellas. Much of that is free for subscribers. Two books / month, for example.

But it’s not enough to keep me.

The Getaway by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, for example.

2 hours long. Not a bad little psychological thriller. But not enough to motivate me to stay on with Audible.
