Bloody expensive

But I got some free credits for my birthday and I've recently chosen Brian Blessed's autobiography, read by the big man himself. It's hilarious

£8 a month for as many books as you like? That's pretty reasonable I think.

I didn't realise they did that

Doesn't seem to make sense when they're charging up to £20 a book

Officially it's one book a month. But you can return a book at any time after you've listened to it, without giving a reason, and they refund you with a credit to get any other book you like.

You can do that as much as you like.

After all these years, RG, I think we've finally agreed on something.

You're feel stupid when we're having to burn entire libraries to keep warm post-Brexit, though.

You're looking at http://www.b-ok.org/

You can use https://calibre-ebook.com/ to convert e-pub files to mobi.

The link Pud posted is like an all-inclusive search engine/site, which includes books that are found in other such sites. Very resourceful.
