Audible -- Free Audiobooks -- updated 09 Sep 2019

A big problem with Audible is that you can't search for titles by price. That makes it very difficult to find free titles. But, there are workarounds. Lifehacker dealt with this issue in Aug 2012 - Score Free Audiobooks from Audible with a Simple Google Search.

I'd like to give special thanks to skinmaan for his threads Audible freebies and Free audiobook short stories. Most of the initial titles were gleaned from those threads.

These books are free to anyone with an Audible account and don't require a membership. Unless otherwise specified, they're unabridged and sorted by length.

This list is by no means complete. If anyone finds other titles, just let me know and I'll add them to the list. Additionally, this post has been linked to FREE/BARGAIN — Audiobooks for easy referencing.

Note: these free offers are subject to change without notice

Current Free Books (59 titles) -- many of these books are also free at Audible UK and Audible CA
