Whispersync is Amazon's technology that lets readers switch “back and forth between a Kindle book and Audible professional narration - without ever losing your place.” The way it works is that you first buy the Kindle book, and then for Whispersync enabled books you can add the Audible audiobook to the purchase.I've actually noticed this even when listening to an audiobook at home and then I decide to download it at work. It opens up right to where I was at.
Why do I bring this up?
Because if someone owns that Kindle book, the Whispersynced audiobook is substantially reduced. For example, the audiobook for A Change of Plans has a list price of $19.95 (which Amazon will discount, of course, if you buy from them).
BUT if you own the ebook, you can purchase the Whispersynced audiobook for $1.99.
I don't know about you, but I think that's kind of a big savings.
I hear from a lot of people that they don't simply listen to the audiobook but prefer to follow along with the ebook.
Because this week has been a celebration of the release of Torn Canvas's audiobook, the ebook is on sale for $.99. That makes it easy to get the Whispersynced audiobook which is $1.99.
So, for $2.98 you can have both the ebook and the audiobook.
So, check out some of your favorite ebooks if you're even the least bit curious about giving the audiobook experience a try.
