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.
Mark Twain - A Double Barrelled Detective Story
Solved! Go to Solution.
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'
Excellent idea! Not something I have ever got into, I prefer reading using my Kindle when I have a spare moment but I might look into this!

Audiobooks are on spotify as well? O_O
You just made my day.
Reminds me of a site I've read some weeks ago which listed some audiobooks on Spotify here.
If you search for Eternal Classic Audio Books and view the artist, you'll see MANY audiobooks. I think the availability of audiobooks is one of the hidden gems few users know about.
There's also a science fiction book by John Trevillian called "The A-Men" which apparently was an audiobook done via podcast.
My only complaint about Spotify offering these audiobooks is that I am too busy listening to music to get around to listening to the audiobooks. Please fix my time management problems! 😉
Cool, thanks 🙂
Here are a few others:
Waiting for Godot
Oscar Wilde's best known work (The Picture of Dorian Grey, The Importance of Being Earnest and a few others)
Moby **bleep** (<--- ha)
Pride and Prejudice
The Art of War
Plenty of Shakespeare
Numerous audiobooks for learning English and Spanish (search 'audiobooks' and there will be some a ways down)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin
Searching 'read by', 'audiobook' and 'audio book' brings up plenty of results
I'm also collecting audio books. You can find them on my blog http://spotifybooks.blogspot.com. For now you can find most H.P. Lovecraft titles and everything I could find from the radio play Blake's 7. Currently collecting erotic chicklit and then I'll look into the Gothic Tales Of Terror.
Blakes 7!!! Awesome, thank you. Nice blog by the way 🙂
I just found Marshall Rosenberg - Nonviolent Communication today.
Had no idea they are audiobooks on spotify either 🙂
I started dropping ebooks I came across into a playlist but I seem to have run out of steam temporarily. If it's of interest to you guys, I've made the list collaborative so feel free to add stuff to it and in a few years time it might even be a handy resource 🙂
I had no idea audiobooks were on Spotify. This is awesome!
There is a wealth of political and socially conscious material available on Spotify. Here are some of my finds:
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.
Hi @nefitty and thanks for the links. As long as they're not read by robots and not already included, feel free to add them to our collaborative playlist 🙂
I found the Foundation Trilogy by Isac Asimov
I just found Fred Alan Wolf's Audiobook DR. QUANTUM: Meet the Real Creator - You!
I was stoked.
Wo, there is also Call of the Wild by Jack London. This is really suprising to me 😄
