We recognize that audiobook lovers have a choice where they purchase audiobooks. When you buy your audiobooks at Libro.fm, you support a local bookstore with every purchase!
Beyond that, we pay publishers fair rates and actively work to make a positive impact within our community.
Libro.fm is a sustainable, local alternative to Audible. Libro.fm is one of the few places where every audiobook is DRM-free, or as we call it, cage-free. A DRM-free model fits our independent nature and it means you can listen to the audiobook anytime, anywhere, on any device. We don’t think it’s right to insist our customers use our other products unnecessarily. Nor, for that matter, do we think we should we ever be able to take your audiobook away from you, or change it—another aspect of DRM that feels, well, a bit cagey.
We do recommend our free Libro.fm app for iOS and Android for the best possible listening experience. There are features such as the sleep timer, bookmarking, and playing audiobooks at a faster rate that are not possible on other players, iTunes, or your desktop.
