I tried Scribd when they introduced their subscription (2013?). Was pricier and more limited than it is today. Limit was 3 books/month when I looked into them again a year or two ago, though there’s a small limited selection with no monthly limit.
The iOS app seemed great.
As I’m sure you noticed Scribd offers a 30-day free trial, so you can listen to that audiobook for free while you decide. But audiobooks.com and audiobooksnow.com also have that book, also have similar pricing, and 30-day free trials, and given that they specialize in audiobooks they might have a wider selection than Scribd…
Just a comment here, the subscription models are different.
Audible subscription model is basically, each month you are provided a credit to buy 1 book. This book is yours forever even if you cancelled subscription.
Other models are just subscription in the sense that you lose the books once you stop paying for the service.
Thanks all. Personally I have no desire to keep the audiobooks after reading them - I’d be paying for something I’d rarely use. Especially when the downside is I’d only get 12 books per month included.
So it comes down to range, which Audible is great with, but not sure yet with Scribd. Free trial will tell!
