Fortunately, there are a ton of Star Wars novels available to us Star Wars junkies so that we can all get our fix. There are many eras, characters, and adventures to choose from. We have our leisure time covered with movies, shows, video games, and books. What about time spent sitting in rush hour traffic, or on the treadmill, or at work? If you are a Kindle reader, you are in luck. Enter WhisperSync audio books. WhisperSync is Amazon’s audio version of their Kindle ebooks. No subscription required. It allows readers to seamlessly switch between reading on a Kindle device/app and listening on a mobile device (free Audible app download required). So, you can read Star Wars adventures on your Kindle before bed, and then pick up where you left off using the WhisperSync audio on your Audible app while commuting to the office. Many of our favorite Star Wars Kindle books have a WhisperSync audio edition available at a discounted price. If you own the Kindle version, the WhisperSync audio version may be available for a few dollars more, allowing you to plow through all of those fantastic Star Wars novels in record time. One nice feature of the Star Wars audio books is the sound effects. While an action sequence is being read, you may hear the snap-hiss of a lightsaber being powered on, the sizzling charge of a blaster bolt being fired, and even some of the Star Wars soundtracks.
If you’ve already purchased some Amazon Kindle books, Amazon will tell you which books in your library have WhisperSync enabled. Perhaps you are running behind on some of your Kindle ebook purchases…for a few bucks, you can catch up by listening to the audio version of your book(s). Don’t let those books beat you! You bought them for a reason! Finish them in your car, at the gym, or at work!
If you don’t have a Kindle, not to worry, you can still enjoy Star Wars audio books with an Audible subscription. At the time of this writing, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get a 3 month free trial of Audible. After 3 months, the subscription fee of $14.95/month kicks in. The Audible subscription isn’t a bad deal at all…and it lets you stay connected to your favorite Star Wars books while on the go.
For Prime Members
Did you know that if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can receive a free Kindle book every month? It is a limited selection, but it is an Amazon perk, AND there are many Star Wars titles available.
