AudioGo is a US and UK focused online audiobook store that offers users access to a wide collection of audiobooks and other digital audio products at reduced prices. The suggested “home” of BBC Audiobooks worldwide (apart from the BBC Audiobook Store, also reviewed in this category, of course), AudioGo gives users access to some of the most recognizable titles currently on the market covering a wide range of genres and categories. Members can not only choose from a great collection of audiobooks, but also a range of other products too, including radio shows, comedy, dramas and more. With a wide collection of products, along with the flexibility to allow members to either download their purchases directly or have them sent to them in CD format, we’re sure AudioGo is going to be popular with our readers.
Finding the perfect book with AudioGo really couldn’t be simpler. Users can search by category (including fiction, thriller, drama, comedy and more) and filter search results by title and author to narrow a search down even further. Members can also check out the “top tens” and “highlights” lists, which provide an ongoing record of the most popular and most listened to books on the site. The website itself is easy to use and a breeze to navigate, so we don’t anticipate users will have any problems finding what they are looking for at AudioGo.
In terms of content, shoppers can select from a quality collection of some of the best audiobooks on the market, including those by eminent authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Ruth Rendall, John Le Carre, Jacqueline Wilson, Agatha Christie and many more. Subscribed members can also receive a free newsletter each week which details the newest releases, as well as a range of offers, promotions and reviews. The site also holds regular sales throughout the year, during which times members can enjoy even greater discounts on many products. Regardless of the promotions on offer at any particular time, however, users of AudioGo can always be sure of a great discount that brings every product on the site in at a far cheaper price than the recommended retail price!
AudioGo is a great choice if you’re interested in picking up some of the newest and most popular audiobooks around at knock-down prices. While the library of books on offer here isn’t quite as large as that on some other services, such as Audible.com or iTunes for example, AudioGo can definitely hold its own – so it’s definitely worth a look if you’re not sure which service is right for you!
Please note that AudioGo has now been discontinued.
