With Audible’s Free Titles, You Can Finally Listen To That Audiobook During Quarantine

Have you always wanted to read that book but somehow managed to finagle an excuse to not read it? You actually want to read the book but something always pops up randomly in your schedule that prevents you from doing so. Well, now that you’re at home being the socially responsible person that you are, what other excuse do you have?

Ah but you can’t just stay still and read a book, can you? That’s alright, listen to an audiobook from Audible while doing something simultaneously—this way you can learn something while doing chores. Audible made the decision to make these titles—Audible Stories— free, after schools started to close due to the worsening COVID-19 crisis in the U.S.

“For as long as schools are closed, we’re open,” said the Audible team themselves. They wanted to make sure that children stuck at home from school were still entertained and engaged. Despite the majority of the audiobooks being catered to children, there’s no better time to brush up on your classic literature with titles such as Wuthering Heights, Pride & Prejudice and The Scarlett Letter.

If you’re a multi-linguist, there are audiobooks in French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. And if you’re one to indulge in the Teen genre of audiobooks, you can take your pick from multiple options which include Hollow City, Talon, and American Shaolin.

As much as I am one to enjoy listening to something rather than to read, I don’t think I’ve ever listened to an audiobook in its entirety. How about you? What are some of your personal favourites, and will you take advantage of Audible Stories to listen to something new?
