MP3 Audiobooks Available on eMusic

eMusic has offered music in unprotected MP3 format at reasonable prices for quite a while; I have been a satisfied customer for two years now. So I was pleased to learn today that they have begun to offer audiobooks in this format as well. It was hard to find information about exactly how the service will work, as it’s very new, but here’s what I know:

  • For $9.95 per month, you can download one eBook each month.
  • You can cancel online at any time.
  • For now, you get a free book the first month, so you get 2 books for $9.95. This may be a temporary offer.
  • There may be a subscription where you pay more to download two books per month, but I couldn’t find a price for it.

It will be interesting to see how this service works out. I am pleased that authors and audiobook producers are willing to offer popular material in an open format, and I wish the venture well.
