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.
Woah.....430 followers of the collaborative audiobooks playlist now and total play time is now 237 hours! Keep adding those gems guys :)!
Hi great playlist.
I've just found "Beowulf: The complete story - A drama" and thought it might be worth adding.
After a little more searching I also found the following.. None of which appear to be on the list yet.
Bram Stoker's Dracular read by Christopher Lee.
Pride and Prejudice - Longer version.. 61 chapters.
Invisible Enemy: Black Fox
A few more
A longer version of Great Expectations.
A longer version of a Tale of Two Cities
A journey to the centre of the earth - unabridged
Read by a computer so sounds a little flat. - https://play.spotify.com/album/6Muigto0lAY11yHT1IwRD4
A shorter version - https://play.spotify.com/album/3iItjAOm60gqHg2PEHSrJ6

German listener should check out this facebook-page. They are posting updates regularly for every genre/listener.
Edit, 14.Oct '14: In the latest version of the desktop client, Spotify is promoting audiobooks (at least for german users, don't know how it is in other countries). They openend an official account called "Hörbücher" with playlists full of audibooks ordered by genre as well as weekly recommendations. Fans of audiobooks should definitely check it out!
H.P. Lovecraft is my favorite horror writer and has some really good books there!
Also for you who want there is the whole bible 😃 Bible
@emptyslot: if you like H.P. Lovecraft check out my playlist, I collected all the best versions of the stories I could find.
Horror - H.P. Lovecraft Stories. They are chronologically ordered.
This thread is so much help! Thanks everyone for your contributions!
As well as Dracula, there are some other audiobooks read by Christopher Lee (in amongst some other unrelated stuff, he sings too):
Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, Frankenstein (abridged), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (abridged) and The Phantom Of The Opera (abridged).
WOW, i didnt know audiobooks were on spotify! thank you, i have now started following your colaborative playlist
there needs to be an easier way to find them, maybe as a genre as i would have never thought to search for them
Here is "The Hobbit" by J. R. R Tolkien:
There is an app calledsbooks which lists all audio books onSpotify, sorted by different sections. It also includes a link to the audio book onSpotify. I don't know if it also works with English audio books, I use it in German. But it's worth a try!
Could you share a link for this app as I wasn't able to find it in both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
Question: Is there no english playlist/category for audiobooks?
There is a German playlist called Hörbücher containing german audio books by genre etc - doesn't this exist for english?
Cool list!! Some suggestions -
Check out my backstage interview
I found this webpage http://www.openculture.com/freeaudiobooks.
If you CTRL+F and type in Spotify there's quite a lot. Among the best i found was Orwells Animal Farm.
Keep up the good work 🙂
There is also another website http://www.audioobook.com/us/ which has organized the audio books in categories like SciFi & Fantasy.
Interesting: There are much more German audio books then English audio books...
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
