“Nothing excites a booklover as much as saying ‘read as much as you want’ ” -Bart Robers, Director, Audiobooks and Global Subscriptions, Rakuten Kobo.
With 3 million ebooks and 100,000 audiobooks available on the all-you-can-eat model from Kobo Plus, the unlimited subscription platform has finally – two years after launching in Australia and new Zealand – added audiobooks to the buffet menu.
“After over a decade as pioneers in the digital reading space, we’ve learned that nothing excites a booklover as much as saying ‘read as much as you want,’ which is exactly what our Kobo Plus service offers,” said Bart Robers, Director, Audiobooks and Global Subscriptions, Rakuten Kobo.
The move flies in the face of the popular faux narrative in publishing circles that former PRH CEO Markus Dohle loves to espouse, that no-one actually wants unlimited subscription and that digital reading has been stuck at 20% of the market since its inception.
