June is audiobook month! There’s never a better time to dive into an audiobook. Check out our Audiobook Month collection here to discover audiobooks under $8!

Why listen to an audiobook?

Audiobooks are a great way to get more reading into your day. You can listen while driving or commuting, in the bath, lying in bed or even while doing chores. And it’s all hands-free! Imagine not having to stop reading as you get to a really exciting moment in a book, just because you need to eat dinner. With audiobooks, the story can go on!

Audiobooks are also a great way to enjoy your favourite books in a new format. Amazing narrators, or even full cast audio productions, add something new to each story. If you love podcasts, non-fiction audiobooks might be a great place to explore first.

It’s easy to get started with audiobooks. You can download and listen instantly with the Booktopia App (available on the App Store and Google Play), or listen on selected Kobo eReaders!

The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum

He was dragged from the sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues: a frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the skin of his hip; evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face; strange things he says in his delirium, which could be code words. And a number on the film negative that leads to a bank account in Zurich, four million dollars and a name for the amnesiac: Jason Bourne.
