I have a hard time finding spots in my schedule to read #books, but lots of time to listen to podcasts etc while commuting via public transport.

Thought that might also be a good occasion for #audiobooks, but would highly prefer #DRM free ones over, let's say audible. Any recommendations on where to buy (or "rent") those?

I am thinking bandcamp, but for audiobooks.

@dej since I was unable to find a solution that checks all boxes, I am currently trying bookbeats, which is affordable, but A)  proprietary and B) has DRM. But I can cancel every month at least. So I am not settled yet and still looking for something better.
