Amazon has launched (and retired) a number of blogs over the years, including Daily Kindle Post, which is used for official announcements and Kindle promo stuff. There's a book blog (Omnivoracious), car blog ( ), film blog (Armchair Commentary), foodie blog (Al Dente), music blog (ChordStrike), and there was even a general gadget blog called End User.
And now Audible has started a literary blog for audiophiles. Launched in December 2015, Audible Range is described by Audible as its "online magazine on literature, tech, listening, and voice."
Part podcast, book blog, and commentary blog, Audible Range has a mission of exploring the way mobile tech makes it possible for us to carry in our pockets all the world's stories through "original reporting, personal stories and recommendations, interviews, interactive features, and more".
The publication was officially announced by Audible on Twitter on Friday, but it has been publishing articles since December on banned books, dyslexia (and how audiobooks can help), and the science behind earworms, and other topics.
Audible Range has only published a handful of stories so far, all of which were published in either December or February. It's not clear just how committed Audible is to this new endeavor.
