I enjoy audio books and though Audible would be a good option since I deal heavily with Amazon Prime. The service works well and there are a lot of book options to choose from. My gripe comes with price and the way the app works. $15 a month is a bit hefty for 1 book. Especially when that book is done in a couple of days (I do a lot of driving). With Audible being associated with Amazon, there should be a decent discount for Amazon Prime members, or at least allow us to listen to multiple books (but not own them) for that amount.
The app is really quite useless for anything but listening. Not being able to purchase books through the app is absurd, but then again, Amazon does the same thing with Kindle.
I would definitely renew my membership if the cost of the audio book wasn't more expensive than a paperback.
