Chirp is a service that lets you get amazing limited-time deals on select digital audiobooks and great everyday pricing on everything else. All books you purchase are yours to keep, and, unlike many other audiobook services, there's no monthly subscription fees or minimum purchases.
How do I find out about these limited-time deals?
You can find out about these new deals via our website or our personalized emails that keep you updated on the new deals matching your interests. You don’t need to receive the email to take advantage of the deals on the site, and there's no membership or subscription fee to buy or listen to any audiobooks we feature.
Why do authors and publishers offer these great limited-time deals?
Publishers are always looking for new ways to get book lovers to discover their books, and authors are always looking for ways to find new fans. By temporarily discounting select audiobooks with us, publishers and authors are hoping to get their books and themselves discovered by an audience that might not otherwise be aware of them. It’s a low-cost, low-risk way for audiobook listeners to discover new books and authors, and a great way for publishers and authors to get out the word about their audiobooks.
Do you only sell audiobooks where there's a limited-time deal?
No. In addition to the deals we run, we also work with authors and publishers to get great everyday pricing on all their other audiobooks, so you can still buy and listen to the most popular audiobooks and not worry about being locked into a subscription service. Any books you purchase, whether they are limited time deals or at our great "everyday value" pricing, are yours to keep and available for you to listen whenever you want.
How do I listen to the audiobooks I purchase?
Whenever you purchase an audiobook it gets added to your digital library on Chirp. You can download our free iOS or Android app and stream the content or download for offline listening. Listeners can also stream purchased audiobooks via our site or listen to Chirp audiobooks on Alexa-enabled devices with our custom Alexa skill. You can switch between devices so you can keep listening whether you’re cooking, commuting, exercising, or just relaxing.
