You can give a friend a book gift for free. You can do it from My account on the website, just enter your friends email and add a message. Your friend can listen to any audiobook he/she wants.
It s also possible to do this in the app. Search for a book and then click the tool bubble -> Give away and enter your friend's email. They will see which book you recommended but can still choose any audiobook they want.
Please note: It is only possible to receive a book gift if your friend has not tried Storytel before. It is only possible to listen to an audiobook with a book gift, not read e-books.
