The daily bulletin service Biryudumkitap sending 5-minute-to read novel and story excerpts to your inbox every morning, has now entered the audiobook business. Biryudumkitap, airing the Chrome extension within recent years now aired its mobile app that allows reading passages from books in different venues as well, thanks to its QR coded product.
Unlimited audiobook usage with Premium membership options
Differing from existing platforms, Biryudumkitap's new app includes comprehensive reviews of non-literature books under the title “Book Droplets”, book excerpts and stories. You are firstly required to become a member when you download the app. Downloading the app and listening a new passage & a story daily is provided free of charge. On the other hand, a premium membership model is included in the platform for more options. If you’d like to listen to any book of your choice, you’re expected to pay 16.99 TL for monthly membership with 3 days free trial period; and 119.99 TL for yearly membership with 7 days trial period. Note that a new book is added to the platform every day.
Keep in mind that despite the move Biryudumkitap made in the audiobook business, the audiobooks on the platform do not consist of the whole book as they are in Storytel. Biryudumkitap solely offers certain passages and stories to users.
Along with the general information on the books, there also is a section in the platform under the heading “Who shall read this?”. Taking a look at this section, you can tell whether a book is right for you.
Over 200 contents in 30 categories
Different from the book summary apps such as Blinkist, 12min, and Headway, literary contents are also included in Biryudumkitap. The book droplets in the app are compiled by field-related master’s/doctoral students and academicians. Note that some of the books are compiled in their original language and adapted to Turkish. The app consists of over 200 contents in 30 categories, excluding the book passages. Nevertheless, the venture targets to increase this number to 500 as of the year-end.
Biryudumkitap is a social enterprise that wishes to make profit from the app and utilize this sum for sustainably realizing its new social impact-focused projects. Also, note that the platform’s e-mail bulletin service will keep on running.
