Renting Audio Books Online
Audio Book Rentals
Audio book rental plan allows you to rent unlimited number of audio books on CDs. Depending on the plan you subscribe, you can rent 1-4 audio titles at a time. Shipping is free both ways. Once you finish listening to the audio books, you can mail them back in the pre-paid envelope.
To facilitate the process, you can create a list of audio books online, they will be mailed to you in your preferred order. Since there is a lag time in each mailing, a two at a time plan is a good choice for avid listeners. You can rent 2 books at a time, when you finish the first one, mail it back and listen to the second one. The third book will be sent to you while you are still enjoying the second one.
Audio book rental is more economical than the download plan if you can listen to several audio titles each month. However, shipping does take time and there may be a queue for the audio books you want. It is also not available for international listeners.
