Why listen to audiobooks though? Well, there are probably some books you intend to read, but never get round to it. Classic novels are a great example of this, and most of them are available as free audiobooks.
The Chronicles of Narnia is now a famous movie series, but if you want a taste of the original books, they are free to stream online. Renowned children's literature author Chrissi Hart was given permission to read out the entire seven-book fantasy series on her podcast, and it's still available for listening.
The Wizard of Oz is a classic that everyone needs to read. And once you've read it, you need to see it on film. And once you've seen it on film, you should listen to the audiobook. It's that good that you can keep revisiting it to find new gems each time.
With any of these audiobooks, you will usually need to listen to them from start to end or remember the point you paused it at. Unlike dedicated audiobook apps, these free audiobooks won't resume playing if you close the window.
Among audiobook apps, Audible is probably the best. While it's a paid service, there's a free trial you can use to download and listen to 1 audiobooks and 2 Audible Originals for free.
