Most eBook and audiobook apps are free. While a limited selection of books may be available for free, the majority of the content accessed on these apps costs extra. Typically, audiobooks can not be share online and eBooks can only be loaned to someone else once. After the loaning period, that book may never be loaned out again. Prices for audibooks and eBooks can vary greatly depending on the publisher, the store, and the interactive content.
