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'

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!

Good idea!

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!  ;)

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

The Bible

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.
