This is a concept I've been pushing for a long time at Audible. It looks like it might actually happen sometime in the near future.

It seems like a no-brainer, but Audible doesn't actually allow users to take extended samples of the Audiobooks on the go and make the decision to buy after they've listened for a bit.

 Its a mystery to me, because unlike movies, books or just about any other kind of digital media, many people don't understand what an Audiobook is. Consider trying to sell a television to someone who has never watched TV before. Hard, right?

Fortunately this storyboard went a long way to getting a "non-starter" conversation, well,  started with the right people.
