Wanderlust by Skye Warren


I love Audio Books. Back in the day it took me over an hour to get to work and I would pop in a CD from the library and just get lost in a book.

Now, it’s even easier to listen to your favorite reads.

It may come to a shock for a few, but I don’t use my kindle **GASP**. I know, I have one, but I’m an Apple lover, so I use an iPhone and iPad.  So my post deals with using the Kindle app.

Common Questions:

Don’t I need a Kindle to listen to Amazon books?
No, you do not need a kindle to listen to books. I use the Kindle and Audible App since Amazon has the best prices on audio books.

Aren’t Audio books really expensive?
No. If you know how to shop. Most of the time Amazon have deals, if you own the kindle version, you can purchase the audio version for a cheaper price.  This is also known as whispersync for voice. You can read along while you listen too.

Do I need to own the Kindle version to purchase the audio version?
No, but it’s cheaper to purchase the kindle version first and then the audio version at discount, unless it’s not applicable, which happens in some cases.
I use more than one device, will it snyc like my books?
Yes. I use an iPhone and iPad and just like the Kindle app, it syncs to the last place you stop listening to.

Do I use data while I listen?
No. Just like a Kindle book. You use data to download your book, but once it’s on your device you do not need to use data.  It will also warn you if you are about to use data.

Can I access my other applications while I listen?
Yes. It works like any other app.  You can surf the web, or in my case, check Facebook and Email.
You can listen to your audio book through the Audible App or the Kindle App.
What is Audible Trial?
It works like any other subscription program. For the first month you can pick two audio books for free. After the first month you pay a monthly fee of $14.95 for one audio book per month. You can cancel anytime and you can exchange your book at anytime.
Let's Get STARTED!
1.) You can purchase from Audible but I prefer to go through Amazon. It's the same thing, I just think the user face of Amazon is better.
I will be using Bared to You by Sylvia Day as en example (plus it's an awesome book).
Bared to You is on sale $2.99
I own the paperback version of this in English, Italian and French, but I don't have the kindle version.  If you notice, it's offers "Whispersync for Voice".

2.) If you notice, you can purchase the Whispersync for Voice version ("Add Audible Narration") is $3.99.

Or the Audio version is $11.95, that means you purchase the audio version without purchasing the kindle version.

Kindle $2.99 + Whispersync $3.99 = $6.98 (plus tax if applicable)
Audio = $11.95 (plus tax if applicable)

Kindle $2.99 + Whispersync $3.99 = $6.98 IS THE BETTER DEAL

3.) One click Bared to You and add narration.

4.) Open the book through Kindle, you will notice the little headphones at the bottom. If you touch it, it will show you the audio version. You can read and listen if you wish.

You will also see this version on the Audible app.

You can stop and play, access chapters and access your other audio books. It's a fabulous app.


There are other ways to purchase audio books. I use iTunes too, but to me this is the easiest way . I tend to listen to my old and favorite books which works out perfectly because the audio version is usually on sale, some as low as $1.99

Regardless the best part is sometimes I find I love the book more because I listen to it. It just feels like I get more of the book and I connect better with the characters. Also, if the audio book isn't on sale, the audio subscription makes it really affordable.

I hope you try it because I love it.
