There are actually loads of options out there to get audiobooks for free including sites where you can get a good audiobook torrent. Today we’re looking at the best sites out there to get good quality free audiobooks.
Best Audiobook Torrent sites
This site has clearly taken its name from one of the most famous torrent websites of all time – piratebay. Audiobook bay, which is actually found at the url usaudiobook.com is an excellent source if you are looking for an audiobook torrent.
The best thing about this site is that it is an open community – there is no invitation required. Plus you can find a quality audiobook torrent or two on here let me tell you! The front page has some quality suggestions including interesting self help books that could help improve your life. The best thing about audiobooks is really how easy they are to consume. You can get through them in a few short sittings, and really learn some interesting things, without having to actually read at all!
On audiobook bay there are options to search for an audiobook torrent by name or to browse by catagory or age. So whether you know what you are looking for or you are just looking for a new book in your favoutite genre, this site has got you covered.
The site is pretty uncluttered and free from unobtrusive ads. There is also options to sign up to the website and a forum for discussion.
All in all, a pretty neat site, and probably your first stop if you are hunting for an audiobook torrent.
This is a great site to find an audiobook torrent. However, myananonamous is invitation only. It is one of the largest trackers, with over 35,000 audiobooks available there for members – which is one heck of a library. Unfortunately, as is the case in the underground world of torrenting, the best stuff is often found in closed communities like this. If you are not in a huge rush to get an audiobook right now, then I would consider using a site like this. You can apply for an invite by following the instructions here http://www.myanonamouse.net/inviteapp.php and perhaps in a few days you could have access to a real quality library with the audiobook torrent you want.
If you fail to find what you are looking for on the two sites above, opentrackers is your go to site. It basically lists all the public torrent tracking websites out there today and their status. Essentially you have a huge list of places here. Enter each site on the list, such as kickasstorrents, and search for the book you are looking for. Essentially, if you go through enough trackers out there, you are bound to get the audiobook torrent you are after. The availability of different trackers is going to vary by country, so in the UK Internet Service Providers are required by law to block some of these websites. In that case you’ve got to turn to a VPN or access those sites through TOR.
Look, getting a free audiobook through an audiobook torrent isn’t always the best or most desirable way to source your free audiobooks. That’s why you might want to check out these alternative sources.
Audible is Amazons venture in to the audiobook world. On the site you aren’t going to find an audiobook torrent. This is the legit thing.
They are offering a free audiobook and the one month free trial lets you access their library for one month. You have a monthly limit for the books you listen to for the trial period. After that, remember to cancel your subscription, because it’s 7.99 a month after that.
This is the same deal as with audible. A free trial membership gets you access to 1 audiobook for that month plus magazines, news articles and other documents. Again, you’ve got to remember to cancel your subscription before the end of that month.
This is a lovely website with genuine free audiobooks for download. It has one of the largest and oldest collections of audiobooks on the web. The site is separated in to human and computer narrated books and you can browse by the authors name, the language you want to read in and the books title.
I would suggest that Project Gutenberg is a go to spot for the classics, however it might not be as well covered for newer books as audible or scribd.
I would also heavily suggest listening to the human narrated books on there! Computer narration doesn’t quite cut it in my opinion.
This is a lovely project and something anyone looking for a free audiobook should definitely consider. They also accept small donations on the site in order to keep up with their running costs.
Lit2Go is a really slick looking website run by the Educational Clearing House of Florida. It has a range of short stories and poems on there for all you literature geeks. The website lets you browse by reading level, genre, title and author and is a great alternative to getting you fix from an audiobook torrent.
Podiobooks is a great site for some of the more obscure and alternative titles out there, many of which are pretty modern audiobooks that are still available for free download on this site. The collection is a bit more limited than other sites, but it makes up for it by including some really interesting work.
So there you have it. There are loads of options out there online for free audiobooks from public trackers to private communities, free trials and free audiobook projects. Happy listening!
