    1. Yes! I don’t know how it is internationally, but it some marketplaces they’ve been around for several years. It’s actually how I got into audiobooks first. I had Kindle Unlimited when I was still mostly reading ebooks. Then I started noticing the “Read and Listen for free” titles and the KU ebooks with Whispersync deals for $1.99. That made it really easy to get into the audiobook habit, haha. The one Audible credit a month just wasn’t enough!
