  • MORE

Audiobooks are often expensive, but there’s a cheaper way. It’s not as elegant as an audiobook, but it gets the job done in a pinch. This solution is part of the Creator’s Update, and it’s  located within the Edge browser by default. It’s a bit out of the way, but once you know it’s there you can use it to read anything you purchase in Microsoft’s baked-in Bookstore.
