Storytel Lured me Back

This will probably not be the last post on audiobooks here. As I’ve mentioned before, I struggle with them. I’m used to listening to music and thinking of other things (daydreaming), so I just stop paying attention at some point. In June I gave Storytel another try, and even listened to a whole book! (Norse Mythology – Neil Gaiman’s voice was apparently nice enough to keep my attention). But, I think € 18 is a bit hefty if I only manage to hear/read 1 book per month, so I cancelled the subscription.

Now they sent me this offer – one month for € 1 (ish, it was in SEK since I joined their .se site). How can I resist that?

And – I’ve finished three books already, two of which were the audio kind. The thing that got me this time was the cross-functionality/sync between audio and e-books that lets you switch between the two versions as you wish. Brilliant! So now I’ll have to re-consider if I think it’s worth the money anyway… luxury problems.

(I thought this notion was great btw – saying that women don’t marry (people who are like) their dads, they marry (people who are like) their moms. From this book.)

  1. Ibland tänker jag på det som välgörenhet; supporta lite författare typ? But also, jag e lat. Hålla på och låna böcker från biblo? Näää. Så länge jag har böcker sparade i min bokhylla i appen så känns det värt det. För mig.

    Men annars JA det är dyrt. Jag använder för fasiken Spotify waaay more och betalar mindre. Makes no sense.

      1. Haha, det här låter lite som när skivbolagen försöker argumentera för varför de är viktigare än Spotify:

        “Skräckscenariot är att fler och fler anpassar sig utifrån vad läsarna kan tänkas vilja ha, menar Malin Koch.”

        Ja, gud, tänk vad hemskt om folk får välja!!
