Audible Books Helping Hurricane Harvey Victims

audiIn a recent press release, Audible Books, ACX are working to help Hurricane Harvey victims. They are suspending billing for all of their Houston area subscribers. Here are the details:

My colleagues at Audible, ACX, and I watched the terrible news about Hurricane Harvey with the same sense of “What can we do to help?” that so many others had. We’ve noted publishers making books available to schools, libraries and shelters in the area and applaud their efforts. We wanted you to know that we’ve contacted the tens of thousands of Audible members in the greater Houston area to let them know their memberships are on Audible for the next three months and that they won’t be billed during this time. Our hope is that this makes life a little bit easier for our customers who are impacted by Harvey. We did something similar after Hurricane Katrina and try to extend the same spirit of “do the right thing” in working with school kids in Newark (more on that soon).

While we won’t be billing our Houston-area members for their audio over the next three months, we will continue to pay you your royalties on their selections. We’ve already gotten a few notes from members in Houston who are grateful for our offer. Let’s hope that listening to some high quality audio may brighten a bleak situation for some people.

Sincerely,
Beth Anderson
EVP & Publisher
Audible, Inc.
