Where to Download Free Online Audio Books

leave a comment »

There are many sites where you can download audio books for free. These audio books may be free because they are in the public domain (meaning no one holds a copy right on these books and therefore anyone is free to distribute them), shared under a Creative Commons License or available to borrow from a library. You can download these stories directly onto your computer and put them on your iPod or other mobile device, burn them onto a CD to listen to in the car, etc. Here are some of the best sources to find free audio books on the web:

  1. Books Should Be Free
  2. NewFiction
  3. ThoughtAudio
  4. LibriVox
  5. Open Culture
  6. Podiobooks
  7. Learn Out Loud
  8. Project Gutenberg
  9. Librophile
  10. Storynory
  11. Lit2Go
  12. Free Classic Audio Books
  13. Spoken Alexandria Project
  14. OverDrive

This list is a work-in-progress. If I have missed any quality sites please let me know in the comments and I’ll add them.

Bonus – while Audible is not a free audio book site, the Audible free book offer allows you to download a free audio book as part of a 14 day no-obligation trial (this includes the latest bestsellers).
