By Ivan Scott Updated on 2021-07-14 / Update for Audiobook Tips

When it comes to storytelling, you would agree with me that everybody enjoys it. Though there is no better way to get hooked to a lengthy story other than getting it from a narrator. Come to think of it, how many people can sit for a whole day to read a book? Not so many.

However, there is a better way to grab all the stories without getting exhausted. Send an audible book as a gift is the trending phenomenon, especially to friends and family who love to read but don't have that time. Besides getting so many titles, there is the comfort of listening to the audiobooks on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Way 3. How to Gift an Audible Audiobook You Already Own

Our third option is to make use of the resources you already have. This may sound very easy but wait until you know what you got to do to turn that Audible gifts a book into a usable format.
