Books by ear!

Advantages: Good if you prefer to listen than to read
Disadvantages: subscription could end up being expensive and 1 book a month isnt a lot
I have an iphone and listen regularly to music and sometimes audiobooks. I saw an advert on quidco for a free audio book download and £4.50 cashback. I immediately clicked through, used my amazon account to log in, and downloaded the audible software needed.
Once the software had downloaded which took about 5 minutes, I then chose a book to download. I went for Miranda's autobiography which was worth £19.99, it took about 10minutes to fully download, and then I tranferred that via itunes onto my phone.
The free book came as part of a free months trial. The only problem with this is that after 1 month it would charge you £7.99 a month from the credit card linked to your amazon account. I cancelled the free trial immediately the download was finished as I cant afford to have that money coming out every month.
It was really easy to use, and the download speed was good. The quality of the audio book is really good and I am impressed with the service this website provides. Its easy to cancel your subscription after downloading your free audio book although not so easy to completely delete your account forever.
Books are very expensive on this site so choose wisely! If you have a monthly subscription then you get one free book a month. If you increase the price you get 2, then 3 and so on. If you dont have a membership then the price of the book is twice as much or more sometimes. They do have sales now and again.
I would recommend to people comfortable with downloading new software and using it with their portable devices.
Summary: A great freebie!
