Anyone that knows us, both as a team and as an app, knows that we like to keep things free. Who doesn’t love free?! Especially if it’s good stuff. Even more so if you don’t have to put in much effort to enjoy the fruits.
In our previous post, we went over how the rise of audiobooks coincides with the rise of podcasts. If you think about it, that totally makes sense and shouldn’t come as a surprise. Soon after we published the post, we realized that we might as well share a list of sites where anyone can get free audiobooks because… FREE!
We hope you find a few of these appealing. Let us know of any other sites you recommend we add to this list- because there are tons more where these came from. Some of the books in these sites can be downloaded through torrents. Before you proceed to download, please ensure it’s not illegal to do so in your country. We don’t want our friends to get in trouble!
