I love Audible and have been a member since 2008. Why? Audiobooks have some amazing benefits (more on this below) and with Audible I have access to the world’s largest selection of audiobooks and spoken word content. Here I’ve put together everything you should know about the 30-day Audible free trial for Premium Plus. This Audible trial includes choosing one premium title from Audible’s entire library for free along with access to the Plus Catalog which has thousands of audiobooks, podcasts, sleep tracks, meditation programs, and more.
Audible: A Brief Introduction
Audible is an online audiobook service owned by Amazon. Audiobooks and other forms of spoken word content can be purchased individually, or under a subscription model where you receive credits with an Audible membership.
Currently, there is a special offer that will let you try Audible free and get free audiobooks with the Audible free trial. This is a risk-free trial as you can easily cancel anytime. You can also exchange any audiobook you don’t enjoy helping to ensure you find a perfect listen.

Why I Love Audiobooks
In 2007 I was spending over 2 hours each day commuting to and from work. At first, I hated spending so much time commuting as I considered this “dead time”. In 2008 I discovered audiobooks and suddenly my daily commute became my “learning time”. I began to enjoy – even look forward to – this time each day.
There are a number of other benefits I have experienced from listening to audiobooks. I now “read” far more than I used to. I also find that I retain more information from listening to books (I guess you could say I’m an auditory learner). And after spending much of the day looking at my computer screen, I enjoy resting my eyes in the evening which helps me sleep better.
