Vodafone customers now have access to a range of popular works from various authors. Available in audio or ebook format, users can listen to a narration or read text via their handset purchased via GoSpoken.com. Customers will even be able to try before they buy by listening to or reading a sample chapter. It's the first service of its kind to be launched by a UK operator and Vodafone promises their catalogue of titles will continue to expand to provide a broader choice for their customers.
Launched today, Vodafone Books on Mobile! is offering five titles including: Alan Carr ‘Look who it is!', Philippa Gregory ‘The Other Queen', Denis Norden ‘Clips of Life', Terry Pratchett ‘Nation' and Frank Skinner ‘On the Road', all of which are available before they have even hit the shops. In addition, for a limited time only customers will be able listen to a free exclusive comedy audio sampler from BBC Audiobooks featuring the likes of Mitchell & Webb, Little Britain and Steve Coogan, while the first two chapters of ex-SAS soldier Andy McNab's latest book, ‘Seven Troop' will also be available to read as an ebook sampler. Prices will vary depending on the title.
