There’s nothing quite like that moment when you’re reading a book or listening to a podcast and you fall across a line which speaks to you in a way that really makes you stop and think – whether it be about your own life or a friend or relative’s situation. Or perhaps it just makes you laugh.
In a time where we are all insanely busy, audiobooks and podcasts have become increasingly popular – allowing people to continue absorbing literature, whilst doing several other things at once.
Now, website Audible.co.uk has launched Clips a sharing tool which enables listeners to share audio snippets from their favourite books – either on social media or via their phones.
The audiobook service, which is the first to allow users to share content in this way, has over 200,000 titles to choose from, so listeners and bookworms will be spoiled for choice.
The site has thousands of clips which also means people can browse them, before deciding whether or not to purchase the full audiobook (because, let’s be honest, sometimes you start listening to a podcast or audiobook and you simply can’t stand their voice).
Whether it be an inspirational quote, a tip on how to launch your own business or a poetic line of prose that you simply have to share, Audible is bringing them all to life.
The site has also released its top 10 inspirational lines from literature, which have been narrated by famous authors.
The list includes Tina Fey quoting from her own Bossypants, to Robert Inglis reading from Lewis Carroll’s Alice Through the Looking Glass.
