Amazon has finally opened its Audible store for audio books in India last week, offering a library of more than 2,000,000 titles at reasonable prices across the country.
You will need an Amazon account to sign up and, as in other countries, an Audible subscription will earn you a credit per month, which will allow you to buy an audiobook that you can keep forever. You will also have 30% off additional purchases each month.
Plans start at Rs. 199 per month (if you register for 12 months), and go up to Rs. 299 per month; there is a 30-day free trial that includes a credit.
The site offers a wide range of Indian and international audio books with the top-selling titles listed at prices ranging from 4,000 rand. $ 615 ($ 8) to Rs. 888 ($ 12). As I mentioned, members can purchase these securities at no additional cost for a single security per month, or have 30% of the price of the additional pounds overturned.
With these prices, it will be more difficult for you to build your audio book collection than pocket books, but it's still way better than what we started in India. Google Play launched the audiobooks in January, with prices hovering around the RS. $ 2,000 (~ $ 27) mark, while paperbacks cost a fifth, and Kindle eBook editions cost a sixth.
It looks like Google is finally responding to the competition: it has now drastically lowered the prices of most of its popular titles and offers discounts on them. That brings Paula Hawkins In the water up to Rs. 800 dollars ($ 11) and Michael Wolff Fire and fury until Rs. 1,299 ($ 18). Of course, they cost even more than if you use them on Audible. If you intend to listen to books, it is better to try Amazon 's offer.
Audible currently offers Android and iOS apps, as well as a cloud-based desktop player. You can view the catalog of titles (including a number of proprietary recordings at the platform) available in India and register on audible.in.
