For years I have been avoiding the topic.
I realise now this was because on needing a whole new set of clobber, whether from the RNIB, my local library and other sources.
Ib the event I have chosen twome-audio apps Amazon Audible and NBL ( local library).
Both apps now sit on my smartphone. Inevitably the chargeable one has a greater far greater selection.Traditionally I always read thrills and adventures and I read then fast. So I have set the speed at 1.4 ( newspapers I listen to at 3 and its easy to repeat a paragraph.)
With Audible you get:
You can return books and get a credit.
2 levels: £7.99 for 1 book a month (£69.99 annual); or £109 annually for 2 books per month.
Cancel at any time and you still keep your library.
Download your book and later remove from your device.
There is a wish list facility.
And you get special offers.
All from an app. no other technologies, no other batteries, no other things to carry, no new account just part of Amazon.
I have upgraded to 2 books per month, approx £4 per book.
