If you don’t want to miss out on bestsellers and hyped books, you should check out Scribd. But it’s important to note that Scribd isn’t really unlimited. They have a lot of undisclosed rules in place! And after starting an audiobook you might lose access to other titles for that billing period. However, for a very low price, you get to listen to many great audiobooks every month, even though Scribd doesn’t say when you will get ‘throttled’ and you might have to wait a few days for the next book.
