BookLender offers multiple membership plans to meet your needs for both Paperbacks and Audiobooks. Membership plans are based on the number of books you can have checked out at a time. This is not the number of books you are limited to each month. There are no limits on the number of books you can rent, only on the number of books you can have checked out at any given time.
No, we offer 20 different Combo Membership plans to meet your reading and listening needs. Click here to learn more about our Combo Membership Plans.
The CD & MP3-CD membership plans allow members to rent both the regular CD format, and the MP3-CD format. The selection of regular CD audio books is about 4 times the selection of MP3-CD audio books. MP3-CDs are CDs that contain MP3 audio files. 15 hours of MP3 audio files can fit on a single CD, where only 70 minutes of regular audio files can fit on a single CD. The CD & MP3-CD membership plans are for those who do not have an MP3-CD compatible play, or for those who like the convenience of the MP3-CD audio books, but like the greater selection of the regular CD audio books.

The MP3-CD plans allow members to rent MP3-CDs only. MP3-CDs are half the price of regular CD audio books which is why the MP3-CD only membership plans are less expensive than the regular CD plans. You must have an MP3-CD compatible player to play MP3-CDs. Most new players support MP3-CDs, in addition, MP3-CDs can be played in computers and most DVD players. The MP3 audio files on the MP3-CDs can also be copied to a portable MP3 player such as the iPod. The selection of audio books on MP3-CDs is not as great as regular CD audio books but are more convenient and less expensive.
