In the audiobook market, there are plenty of rivals that find their own niches or specialized places in the market, but it's tough to beat Audible's offering. Take Nook audiobooks as an example, it is far leg behind other specialized audiobook providers.

Like Apple Books and Google Play Books, Nook audiobook selection isn't as broad, nor its prices as competitive. And Nook audiobooks don't offer subscription service to let users access all the titles, so you just pay for what you want. Beyond that, they don’t provide direct customer support options over the phone or live chat. Their FAQs page is very bare.
