The Good

  • First month is free
  • Large selection
  • In depth information about each book

We like that waves the first month’s membership fee. On top of that, they let you buy your first audiobook for $3.95. After that, they claim that 90% of their books are $12.95 or below. has a large selection of content to go through – over 40,000 titles. Many of these titles are popular, best-seller books that people want to listen to.

We also like all the information shares about each book we click on. From their site, you can see a description of the book, other titles by the author, reviews, and suggested audiobooks.

The Bad

  • Lack of transparency
  • Can be expensive
  • Limited language options

Even though AudiobookStore claims that a majority of their books cost under $13 for their members, they don’t actually show this right off the bat. Every time you click on a book without becoming a member, they show you the nonmember price, and encourage you to sign up for an account and get the book for $3.95. Once you have an initial book in your cart, you can see the membership price of any additional books you add.

Even though it’s nice to see the nonmember price, people should be able to see how much books cost before they join the site. In general, we wish they were more transparent.

The site has a membership fee and a price per book. When you calculate the price of listening to one or two books on at the $12.95 price (plus $3.95 for membership fees), it’s more expensive than contemporary prices. However, if you buy more than one book each month, or if you choose books that are priced lower, you will end up paying the same amount or less than other sites.

In summary, here are a few things to remember:

  • They have a smaller selection than many of their competitors
  • You’ll want to double check the price of what books will be before purchase
  • They only have books available in 2 languages
  • They offer no free book, unlike several of their competitors

The Bottom Line

While we like how AudiobookStore functions, their lack of transparency worries us. We were unable to find who owns the company, who works there, how long they’ve been around, or if they have a parent company. Their prices also lack transparency at first.

Even though they have a smaller selection of audiobooks than their competitors, their prices are still cheaper. If you browse their site and find several books you are interested in, we definitely recommend using However, if their selection does not interest you, you may want to try a company with a wider selection.

Number of Books has over 40,000 audiobooks to choose from.

Trial Period

When you sign up for, you get your first audiobook for the price of a month’s membership ($3.95). They also wave the first month’s fee.

Ways to Listen

With, you can download or stream content to various devices.

Languages offers audiobooks in English and Spanish.


The following platforms have apps: Android and iOS.

Cost is not very upfront about their prices. Membership is $3.95 per month. After that, you pay per book. They claim that 90% of their books cost $12.95 or under, but fail to show this on their website.

App Rating

The app has 4.3 / 5 stars on Google Play, but there are only 3 reviews. The iOS app currently has no reviews.

Site Usability

The website has its pros and cons. One good thing they do is provide a lot of information on each audiobook. Audiobooks come with long descriptions and recommend books. We also like the number of ways you can search for audiobooks.

However, there isn’t a lot of information about the company on their website and it’s hard to tell what the actual prices of books are once you become a member. This lack of transparency leads us to give a 5/10 for site usability.

    I’ve been pretty happy with this audiobook company – good selection and attractive prices for the most part. I had a couple of minor technical issues come up but they were quick to take care of them and were great to deal with. One big plus point for me is that there’s no minimum contract and they make it really easy to cancel (and resume when you like). Another thing I really liked is that their books have no DRM restrictions which can be a real headache with some companies.

    My experience has been the exact opposite of the previous reviewer so I felt compelled to post my experience. It is true they have no published support phone number but I’ve been using them for over a year and rarely wait more than an hour for a reply using the app’s help option. I don’t know about the other reviewer’s claim that there’s only one person to deal with but who cares as long as you’re getting timely support!! In my experience a reply from support within an hour is very reasonable, and these days it is not uncommon for services like this to only have email support! I also never had an issue with being charged again once I cancelled my membership, so again that’s just not true. I started off as a member and realized I wasn’t listening to as many audiobooks as I thought I would so I cancelled after about 3 months. Never received another charge again after that. Anyway, that’s my experience with this service.
