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 allk know we have a decided 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!  ;)

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)

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.
