In an effort to make quarantine a bit easier, Audible decided to make a vast selection of its titles available to listen to for free.
The audiobook platform announced that a mix of classics, education and entertainment books will remain free to stream for anyone for as long as schools are closed.
“For as long as schools are closed, we’re open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids” – Audible announced on Thursday, March 19.
Some of the now-free titles include Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre (narrated by Westworld’s Thandie Newton), Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (narrated by Downtown Abbey’s Dan Stevens), and many children’s books – from Winnie The Pooh to Peter Rabbit.
To get started, simply visit Audible’s website. You do not need to log-in, create a password, or provide any credit card information – and instead, you are free to enjoy Audible’s vast selection of titles to the full.
Audible is one of the leading audiobook platforms, and for a good reason – its easy-to-use free app is packed with high-quality audiobooks recorded by some of today’s best voice actors.
It also offers quite a lot of good deals – apart from daily and monthly deals, there is also plenty of content all users can access for free. And, finally, once you purchase a title on Audible, it remains in your library forever – even after your subscription ends.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
