Audiotogo has a large selection of audiobooks they will mail directly to your home, when you’re done send it back and they will send you the next selection on your list. At the time of this review, they didn’t sell audiobooks directly through their site; however, they have only recently expanded into the audiobook buying this realm of the industry and are selling audiobooks through Amazon.com. Prices vary depending on title.
Overall, Audiotogo is a good service, but it falls behind some of the bigger players. Audiotogo doesn’t have as many categories of audiobooks and the website doesn’t have critic reviews or audio samples.
Until recently, Audiotogo was strictly an audiobook rental service. You pick your first 50 selections. They mail you the selection at the top of your list. After you listen to it, mail it back and they will send you next one. There are no shipping charges, no due dates and no late fees.
If you’re not sure what books to add to your list, you can start with the NYT Bestsellers, Oprah’s Book Club Library, Audie Winners or the list of books that they recommend.
Audiotogo does offer a purchasing option through Amazon.com.
