Imagine being able to read more books with your spare time, and pay less for the privilege. Sounds impossible, right? But there’s a new site out there helping readers to conquer their biggest struggle, and it’s leading millions to cancel their subscriptions with Kindle Unlimited, Scribd, and other expensive services.
If you’re an avid reader, you’re not alone in feeling that there’s just not enough hours in the day to read as much as you’d like. Statistics show that over 60 percent of adults are connected to their work for more than 13.5 hours per day thanks to their smartphones, which barely leaves any downtime to sit and enjoy a book. And while eBooks have brought a more convenient way to read, they do nothing to help you fit more reading into your life.
The answer is audiobooks. The fastest-growing trend in the publishing world, audiobooks let you listen to your favorite books without having to rearrange your daily schedule. Whether you’re stuck in traffic, doing household chores or out getting groceries, you can still be reading the latest and hottest books. So you no longer have to choose between productivity and reading. And the latest audiobooks service to hit the market, Playster, has finally removed the only barrier that’s been putting us all off the idea of audiobooks – cost.
Playster is the only truly unlimited ebook and audiobook platform on the market, so it’s no surprise that it’s signing up new users in their hundreds of thousands. You can read as much as you like without having to pay more, and it gives you access to all the newest and biggest audiobooks on the day of their release.
While many unlimited book subscriptions like Oyster have shut down and others like Scribd have been forced to change their business models from unlimited to limited, Playster has vowed to remain truly unlimited. Believe it or not, Playster lets you listen to as many premium audiobooks as you want each month for one flat fee.
Now, you’re probably saying to yourself, ‘OK, but do they have the books I want?’ and the answer is ‘Yes!’ Playster has signed content deals with all of the biggest publishers in the world, as well as indie ones, so it’s able to offer members over 100,000 premium audiobooks. What’s more, they upload hundreds of new audiobooks each week on the day they’re released AND you can access them all from any device, including your phone, tablet and computer.
But wait, it gets better! All new members can try Playster free for 30 days. That’s right: You can listen to unlimited audiobooks, including New York Times Best Sellers, for the next month and not have to pay a single cent. Really, try it for yourself and see!
We gave the site a try — here’s what happened.
Signing up for the free trial took less than a minute. We simply put in our email address and followed the steps on screen to create an account. That’s it! We were then immediately able to access all of Playster’s premium audiobooks and start listening without having to worry about being charged extra or paying for credits.
We were expecting to be limited to short samples, but that wasn’t the case. If we were curious about a specific audiobook, we could just start playing it and, if we didn’t like it, we could move on to the next one. That’s a feature we haven’t seen on any other audiobook platform and it left us seriously impressed.
We can also confirm that the selection was amazing, just as promised. We spotted all kinds of trending books and so many celebrity narrators that we had a hard time deciding where to start.
We tested the mobile version, as well as the Android and iOS apps, and Playster worked seamlessly across all of our devices with crystal clear audio. After having experienced all of these perks first-hand, why anyone would choose to sign up for a different audiobook service is beyond us. Go on Playster.com try it and see for yourself!
