Frequently Asked Questions
• Is Audible a reading app?
Audible lets you listen to great audiobooks. The combination of an incredible performer plus the ability to listen while you multi-task make Audible indispensable for any book lover.
• What’s the difference between Audible and an ebook reader?
What makes Audible different than ebooks or printed books is that you can hear a story be professionally performed while doing something else.
• Does Audible have story books for kids?
Yes, Audible has loads of great content for kids (especially great on those long car journeys that can be transformed into story time for kids).
• What genres are available on Audible?
Everything from best sellers to gangster tales, the latest hit novel, even ghost stories. It’s all on Audible.
