how to find audio books online

If you like reading books but you can’t find the time to sit and open one, you should try audio books. Audio books are a great way to make the daily commute entertaining or relaxing after a stressful day. Let someone else read the book to you while you are exercising in the gym or relaxing with your eyes closed.

There are many free audio books available. Finding them is quite easy. Many can be found directly through your search engine. One of the oldest free sources for digitized books is Project Gutenberg® founded in 1971. It offers more than 38,000 public domain titles, many of them as audio books. The instructions below demonstrate how you can find audio books on this server.
