Getting Started

Although the Walter H. Annenberg does not carry any audiobooks, there are many sources of free audiobooks available.  This guide will direct you to the best online sources available.

What Are Audiobooks

Audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions. You can listen to audiobooks on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car entertainment system.

Audiobooks are usually purchased and downloaded in the same way as digital music and video. They can also be purchased from online bookstores or downloaded free from public domain sites. Most public library systems offer audiobook downloads online—all you need is a library card. Even Spotify has an audiobook section.
