3 Reasons to Download Dresden Files Audiobooks
1. My Download Benefits the Author
As a fan of the Dresden Files series, I would like nothing more than to have the series continue unabated. If buying an audiobook supports Jim Butcher and the continuing adventures of Harry Dresden, I’ll gladly contribute. Of course, I can understand why someone who hasn’t tried audiobooks before might not want to spend money on something they aren’t sure they’ll like. I started my foray into audiobooks by listening to previews, like the first 12 minutes of the first Dresden Files book, Storm Front, on the Buzzy Multimedia website.
2. Easier Than Reading
3. Audiobooks Aren’t As Expensive as I First Thought
- Subscription services — Most online audiobook providers look for recurring customers, so they offer deals if you sign up as a monthly or yearly member. I went with Audible.com‘s subscription plan , which costs only $14.95 a month and includes one free audiobook and discounts on many others. I planned to listen to one Dresden Files audiobook a month, saving me about $10 on each book. Plus, once I run out of Dresden Files books to listen to (a day I dread), I can comfort myself by continuing my subscription and listening to other urban fantasy books.
- Discounts — Being subscribed to a service isn’t the only way to get discounts on audiobooks. Buying straight from Buzzy Multimedia would’ve gotten me a discount on Dresden Files audiobooks. Since there’s no further obligation like with a monthly subscription service, it’s a good option for one-time buyers.
- Free trials — Let’s just say I’m a broke wizard like Dresden, looking for a sympathetic tale. I managed to afford the first audiobook by choosing Audible.com’s subscription plan, which includes the first month and one audiobook download absolutely free.
- New, cheap sites — Since you’re part of the in crowd when it comes to fans of the Dresden Files, I’ll tell you a little secret. There’s a new website called hookedonfiction.com (launching soon) where you can download The Dresden Files audiobooks for cheap. You’re welcome.
