Recommended Posts

I am looking to get some audio books and I want a dedicated audio book gadget.

Is this possible these days?

Thanks

Some kindles do audio books, o assume other readers do too (kobo etc) or get an old iPhone or iPod just for this use if you want something smaller?

I'm using an old samsung phone for my daughter. I have stripped a lot of it, left the Wi-Fi and browser to download the books from our library and it works nicely. I know you said no smart phones, but it's not really a phone anymore, has no calling capability, or even texting, I deleted those apps. Really just like a big iPod.

You need an app to listen to them so your device needs to support current apps.

I have a kobo with backlight so i can read it in bed when hubby is asleep - it is about the size of a ipad mini and can read epub books which is great as i do not have to have an amazon account or kindle account.  It will also allow for any other publications that are in epub format and is super easy to use once set up.

 

Thanks

Kobo doesn't in the same way, and I assume Kindle is linked to audible audio books only.

Most phones and modern MP3 players will do audiobooks.
