If you have poor eyesight, or don't have the time to read, a new app from Barnes and Noble is made just for you. Now available in the Google Play
Store is Nook Audiobooks. You can listen to books being read to you from your Android phone
or tablet. This is perfect for those with a long commute. Use your time behind the wheel, or on the train, to catch up on your reading.
The app is free and when you sign up, Barnes and Noble will let you choose a pair of books (out of five) that you can listen to for free. The five books that you can choose from change weekly. Most books have a free sample that you can listen to. And if your car supports Bluetooth, you can listen to an audiobook directly from your car's speakers.
"Barnes & Noble is committed to providing the very best reading content in whatever format our customers choose and with the continued growth in the audiobook market, we felt the time was right to introduce our NOOK Audiobooks App to provide another great way to experience books. We’re delivering a robust catalog of more than 50,000 top audiobook titles available at great low prices, offering the perfect solution for on-the-go readers who want to stay connected with their favorite books and authors"-Kashif Zafar, Vice President of US Digital Content, NOOK Media
Besides the Google Play Store, the Nook Audiobook app can also be found on the Nook App Storefront.
