On Sundays I usually post a roundup of 10 free Kindle Books but I thought today I’d change things up and post a list of 10 free audiobooks instead.
I forget that you can often find free audiobook titles from Audible. A lot of them are short stories or add-ons to other books in the series.
Some of the freebies have really good reviews, so I rounded up some of the more popular ones.
You need an Audible account but you don’t need an active subscription to get these free audiobooks (they’ll try and trick you into signing up so be careful).
Audible is owned by Amazon so these are all available through Amazon’s website as well as Audible’s website.
Here’s the page where you can find more free audiobooks at Amazon.
10 Free AudioBooks
There’s also this free audiobook copy of Pride and Prejudice that Amazon is giving away for the rest of this month, so I guess technically it’s 11 free audiobooks.
