Audiobooks on Spotify - let's build a list of what's available

Since there is no easy way to search for audiobooks on Spotify, I thought it might be useful to build a list here to help each other. I know there are scraps off-forum but it seems more useful to have this information in the community.

 

Here's my starter for 10.

 

H.G.Wells - War of the Worlds

 

H.G.Wells - Time Machine

 

H.G. Wells - Invisible Man

 

Mark Twain - Short Stories

 

Mark Twain - A Double Barrelled Detective Story

Hey folks! This thread gets a lot of new views every week. We want you to all know we have a dedicated section for Audiobooks now. 

 

In Browse > GENRES& MOODS > WORD you can now find these options.

 

If you've found something great, share it in the 'Audiobooks - What are you listening to'

There is a wealth of political and socially conscious material available on Spotify. Here are some of my finds:

Lectures by Howard Zinn

Lectures by Noam Chomsky

The Great Gatsby

Lectures on ancient history by Dr. David Neiman

Greatest Speeches collection "Words With Friends"

Ken Mcleod's huge collection of lectures on Buddhism

Meditation guides by Judith Day

Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief by Jon Kabat-Zinn (excellent resource by a well respected meditation researcher)

A huge playlist of Leonard Bernstein's lectures on classical music

Through The Looking Glass and Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Hardcore Zen by Brad Warner, a guide to Buddhism for punk-rockers

Books by imprisoned radical activist Mumia Abu-Jamal

Activist Angela Davis (except for the album The Art of the Melody by another artist with the same name)

Controversial activist Ward Churchill

 

There's also a tremendous amount of spoken poetry available:

Pleasure Dome: Poetry Spoken By Its Creators (incudes E.E. Cummings, W.H. Auden, Dylan Tomas, etc.)

Spoken poetry by T.S. Eliot (his related artists page will direct you to even more great poetry like Charles Bukowski, William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, etc)

 

Enjoy the links! I will be sure to update with more replies as I come across more worthy material.

Where can I find the "Word" section? I'm using Spotify in The Netherlands and I don't see it in Browse > Genres & Moods...

Hey Spotify: Want more of my money? Offer a super-premium subscription that provides access to an Audible-style library of audiobooks. I'm paying them $15 a month for that, but I like your model better.

There is no word category option in genres for me. Is it because I'm using the app?

I can't seem to find words in genre and moods, I'm a premium member. I tried it on my phone and laptop but it doest have it. Is it because I live in the UK?

No there isn't - why was this posted if it's not true? Weird (& annoying). Hopefully will be true one day though...

Not seeing the "Word" section today so I guess it's been removed.  Any alternatives?
