Is it just us, or does life consistently seem more and more busy? Finding time to put everything else on pause and pick up a book feels increasingly rare, what with work, chores, kids, and everything else the day throws at us. That's why Audible (opens in new tab) can be such a lifesaver if you don't want to let reading fall by the wayside.

The audiobooks at Audible make it easy to find time for new stories and your personal favorites, too. Now that Audible has a more affordable tier, Audible Plus, you can become a member and listen to any audiobooks within the Audible Plus selection whenever you'd like for just $7.95 monthly. There's even a new holiday offer that drops the cost to only $4.95 per month at Amazon (opens in new tab) for six months if you subscribe before January 3 next year.

Audible Plus (opens in new tab)

Audible Plus is a new, more affordable tier at Audible that lets you listen to unlimited audiobooks available in the Audible Plus selection! It normally costs $8 monthly, but right now you can sign up and score six months for only $5 monthly.

Whether you're washing dishes, finishing laundry, driving to work, or taking a shower, Audible lets you finish the story no matter what you have to get done today. You can listen anywhere you go by downloading the Audible app on your phone or tablet, or you can listen via the Audible website. Even the new Kindle e-readers (opens in new tab) let you listen to Audible audiobooks.

Audible now has two membership tiers you can choose between. The original plan is now called Audible Premium Plus (opens in new tab) and remains priced at $14.95 per month. The new plan, Audible Plus, has a regular monthly cost of $7.95 and differs in a few ways. While Audible Premium Plus gives you a credit every month that can be used to purchase any audiobook on the site, Audible Plus instead gives you unlimited listening to thousands of audiobooks, Audible Originals, and podcasts with your membership, but only those which are within the Audible Plus selection. The Audible Premium Plus tier includes this feature as well.
