Hi so i'm not sure if this is the right thread to post this in, but I rely pretty heavily on audiobooks to consume literature and I'm having a hard time figuring out if the audiobooks spotfify offers are complete or just parts of the full-length books. If anybody has an answer for me it would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Everywhere I have read it says audiobooks can be found in moods &genres in words section - I have never seen that section

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.

Re: Rickymedium: It depends on which recording you find. In some cases, you only get radio adaptations, or selections from the book; in many other cases, you get the whole book. Whole books are typically broken up by chapter, and whole plays by act or scene, so if you catch sight of a book or play you'd like to listen to, view the album it's on and see if it's a long list of chapters, or just a few short ones. Some of the abridged books are still quite good - a recording of Kurt Vonnegut reading a shortened version of his own Slaughterhouse-5, complete with an introduction and personal asides, comes to mind - but I generally prefer the whole-book approach.

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

But it's in German. I've been trying to find an English version but it doesn't seem to exist.
