In my daily search for free audiobooks I stumbled on this article that may interest some of you.

Spotify is highlighting its Word category, a section that houses everything from audiobooks to poetry and guided meditations.

Word is a category bucket for everything spoken on Spotify — with no accompanying music.

With Spotify’s renewed focus on podcasts and other spoken word content, the streaming giant seems to be trying to appeal to the same demographic subscribed to Audible.
Always good to have some competition but I don't think this is all that original. Stitcher has been doing this for years ("LeVar Burton Reads" and "Wolverine: The Long Night" being two I have particularly enjoyed). Still, maybe it will help keep everyone on their toes.
