- Patty "I joined Audible to start reading great fiction novels, to learn more about famous writers, and improve my fading powers of concentration. For twenty years I read non-fiction exclusively. Now that I am listening to fiction, a whole new world of literature has captivated me. I have listened to four times more novels in my first year of membership than in my previous four years. Audible is the best gift I have ever given myself."
