Audible are making audiobooks free to keep self-isolators entertained

With so many people around the world locking down, working from home and self-isolating Amazon are offering up free audiobooks to everyone.

The Coronavirus pandemic has seen shut downs across the world and the US could well be soon as schools across the country shut down and workers try to stay home as much as possible. Self-isolation can seem like a very daunting thing so companies are coming out of the woodwork to help us all get through this together.

The latest to bring us free entertainment to keep us busy for the next few months stuck at home are Amazon who are offering free audiobooks. A lot of what’s on offer is directed to children to keep them entertained and educated whilst schools are closed.

Content spans story books and songs for the littlest of children to teen fiction novels to keep the teenagers occupied and ingesting. Free audiobooks aren’t only for young ones as there are also a bunch of literary classics available featuring works from the likes of Jane Austen, Aldous Huxley, Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare and many others.

There are also foreign language books available – so if you’re learning a language or, you know, speak that language then there’s content for you too. Audiobooks are available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese.

Monthly subscription fees to Audible can cost $14.95 to $22.95 per month but with many people struggling for cash, especially now, these free audiobooks will be a major boost to many people’s home-life as they are willed to stay there as much as possible.

Audible promised that “for as long as schools are closed, we’re open”. Find your free audiobooks here:
