BookBeat: Listening over the Festive period

Wednesday, 3 January 2018

Throughout 2017, you may have seen that we've been listening to BookBeat.  I've not updated you in a while, so I thought that I would share with you what we've been listening over the festive period :)

For those that don't know, BookBeat is a digital streaming service that was founded in Sweden in 2015, with Finland following shortly after. In March last year, it was released in the UK.

Bookbeat allows you to listen to thousands of audiobooks right on your mobile and tablet. You'd think that this would be expensive, but it is only £14.90 a month, the price of a couple of books!

So here is what we've been listening to over Christmas :)

David Mitchell: Back Story

I used to like Peep Show and love Upstart Crow, so I thought that this would be a good listen. I wasn't wrong! David Mitchell is very funny and I've really enjoyed listening to his memoir, especially as it's also read by the writer and comedian himself!

Pinkalicious: Soccer Star

Dot loves this story. She goes to football training every weekend so loves that there's a soccer element, but she also really enjoyed the story. It's also only a few minutes long, so is perfect for her age :)

Murder on the Orient Express

I am loving this classic! I do love Agatha Christie books, but haven't gotten around to reading Murder on the Orient Express yet. This is such a good story and to top it off, it's narrated by Kenneth Branagh who I've loved ever since I've seen him in the DVD of Hamlet when I was at college! 

I really enjoyed listening to BookBeat throughout 2017 and I can't wait to listen to new audiobooks in 2018 :)  To find out more about BookBeat, you can find them on their website and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
