TTT: Playster

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “All About Audio freebie —  aka top ten audiobooks you should listen to, 10 books I want to listen to on audio, 10 bands you should check out, 10 podcasts you should be listening to, 10 of my all time favorite albums, 10 songs I love, really whatever you can come up with.”

Over the past 2 years I have become an audiobook junkie. I use multiple apps to borrow audiobooks from 2 different library systems, and I average 4.5 audiobooks per week. I’m trying out a new-ish paid service called Playster (I got a 90 day free trial), so I’m going to list the books I’m most excited to listen to, that only Playster has:

  1. ALL of Agatha Christie’s novels – These aren’t easy to find at the library, so I’m thrilled that they’re all here!

  2. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – I’m excited to re-read this Civil War novel (it’s at least my 3rd reading). At just under 49 hours long, it’s one of the longest audiobooks I’ve read.
  3. Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures by Peter Anghelides – OMG, you guys! SO excited!
  4. The Abhorsen / Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix – With Goldenhand publishing on 10/11/16, I really want to re-read the original trilogy!
  5. The Peter Grant / Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch – This series is awesomesauce, and the narrator, Kobna Holbrook-Smith is perfect. My library only has the first 3 books, so I’m happy that Playster has all 5.

    Methinks I should check out Playster for the Doctor Who novels alone! I got into the audio media tie-in novels last year as a way to go back and revisit and get more stories from my two fave Doctors (9 and 10) but the library is a missing a few which is ANNOYING! Also really like that they have all of Agatha Christie’s novels. Thanks for bringing this program to my attention!

      It’s still pretty new, so the app isn’t the best, but they do have a lot to choose from. They have various levels of service too – some are just eBooks and audiobooks, while others have music and movies too. My free trial has everything, but I’ll probably switch to just books once the trial is over.
