We here at Cavalier House Books are super excited to be announcing that we are ready to help you with all your audiobook needs! We carry a limited range of audiobooks on CD here in the shop, but several customers have asked if we sell digital audiobooks. I am so happy to finally answer that questions with a very enthusiastic YES! (so enthusiastic that I might be scaring the small children – I’ll try to tone it down, but this is so cool).
The ABA (that’s the American Booksellers Association) came to us with an awesome proposition at the beginning of this year; they asked if we would like to partner with a new startup, Libro.fm, to offer digital audiobooks to our customers. Being huge fans of audiobooks and knowing how many of you have asked for digital audiobooks over the years we jumped at the opportunity!
Have you been looking for a way to support Cavalier House Books while driving? What about doing laundry? Mowing the grass? Now is the time! Libro.fm has a huge catalog of audiobooks (over 70,000 and growing) and every one you purchase benefits your local bookstore (that’d be us!). There has really never been a more win-win situation.
With Libro.fm you can purchase audiobooks as you need them or subscribe to their monthly membership program. Libro.fm has all of the benefits you would expect from an audiobook membership and many more…thousands of titles, monthly credits that NEVER expire, recommendations from us here at CHB and indie bookstores around the country, and so many more. Here’s to happy reading and happy listening!
