Any bookseller currently working in an ABA member store can sign up for Libro.fm’s Audiobook Listening Copy (ALC) program to gain access to more than three dozen complimentary audiobooks each month, with a new selection of titles added monthly.
Libro.fm’s new featured audiobook listening copies for the month of June include Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale; Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977–2002) by David Sedaris, narrated by Sedaris; Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane, narrated by Julia Whelan; Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder, narrated by Kim Mai Guest; and Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz, narrated by Samantha Bond and Allan Corduner. See all of this month’s complimentary audiobook titles, which include Indie Next List picks, New York Times bestsellers, and other popular titles, on Libro.fm’s June playlist page.
Here’s how it works:
- Log in to Libro.fm and go the ALC playlist page. Next, add as many audiobooks as you would like to your cart and check out (no payment or promo code required).
- If you see a total dollar amount due in your cart, it means you are not registered as a bookseller.
- To sign-up for the ALC program as a bookseller, create an account on the Libro.fm website and e-mail Libro.fm at email@example.com with the name of your store.
In order to access each month’s audiobooks, booksellers must add the titles they want to their accounts by the end of that month.
Libro.fm also invites any ABA member store to join the more than 200 indie bookstore locations already selling audiobooks through a partnership with the American Booksellers Association. On IndieCommerce sites participating in the Libro.fm program, the digital audiobook will appear on the product page along with the title’s other available formats. Libro.fm supplies the shopping cart and fulfillment via a store co-branded white-label site and links back from the white-label site to the referring store for purchase of the print book.
