Libby on my phone ?
@Callie how many books do they allow you to listen too
You can have 15 on your shelf and 15 on hold
@Callie Thank you!
My library allows 4 holds and 4 checked out at a time. It varies by your local library
@Erin I had no idea it differed from libraries! Thanks for the info!
I use Libby too.
Overdrive and Scribd
@Rachelle how many books can you have on both?
@Sandra Scribd claims to be unlimited but I find that it’s like 3 a month for the 8 dollar fee. Which is a great deal. Overdrive is through my library, so I can have up to 14 at a time and its unlimited. Just like the library.
@Rachelle thank you ?
Overdrive, RB Digital, and Audible
Overdrive. Love it
There is a pretty good selection on YouTube. I listen to audiobooks on there while I work.
@Maryann oh I didn’t even think about that!
I like it because it’s free! ?
@Maryann I always check there first too.
YouTube is piracy though. The library is free and legal.
@Leonora some of the audiobooks are released by the publisher and/or posted in a public domain which isn’t a problem. YouTube has it’s own piracy policy against anything illegal, even though things do leak through. I have seen a lot of books that are removed do to copyright infringement. But I see what you’re saying, thanks for bringing that to my attention. ?
Audible, libby, and scribd
My library has 2 apps that offer audiobooks. Check with your library first.
I love the apps through my library- overdrive (unlimited books, 2 week checkout) and hoopla (5 loans a month, 30 days each)
Librivox for all the classics
After the local library Scrib is a much better deal than Audible or Kindle Unlimited. $8.99 a month with unlimited audio and print books. Most bestsellers are available in audio if not both.
I have Kindle Unlimited, does that mean the audio is included?
@Lisa Only some. Usually not current books or bestsellers.
@Jennifer That’s what I thought. So I would need to subscribe. Thank you for replying.
Overdrive and Hoopla are my life!
Library and Overdrive
Philadelphia Free Library, Axios 360 and Overdrive.
@Susan I use philly too ?
Overdrive, Hoopla, RBDIGITAL—- i have library cards from 5 neighboring cities ( one city i was able to set up online & they emailed me my library card number, didn’t even have to go in!)
So i always have a free audiobook book to listen to.
Remember digital downloads will return themselves after the allotted time -usually from 41-21 days!
And of course there is Audible
You tube has some great ones.
Scribd has a good amount 🙂
mostly the library
Library and Libby
Audible from amazon 15.99 i’m month for to audible books
Libby – Library App
When I was listening to them, I used a CD player.
My phone: library ( overdrive)
I use Overdrive and Hoopla.
I use audible
I use http://audible.co.uk/ Be aware that http://audible.co.uk/ and http://audible.com/ are different. For half a year I was charged twice a month by both 😀
I’ve always used Audible, but I just started Scribd and it’s cheaper than Audible! AND you have unlimited access! No need to pay a particular book. I really like it so far.
Audible is fantastic and if you get a membership you get 1 book free a month
Audible when you splurge and overdrive when times are tight
Hi sense on Google play only bad part is you have to stream the books one price unlimited books cant save bookmarks I found out but says it saves every 30 seconds
Audible, hibooks and Libby
Libby, Hoopla, and CDs.

Btw Where the Crawdads Sing was a great audio book and excellent story. ?
@Jennifer thank you!
@Sandra you’re very welcome.
Not me….l like to read…
Audio books put me to sleep.
II use http://audible.com/ – connected to Amazon. There is a monthly charge and there are also some freebees and some reduced price books at times. I think that many library systems have a way to download books for free – I have been meaning to look into it again – At first I think the systems – some of them were awkward, and some books had computer readers – but I think that has improved. I am a potter. I listen to them while I work – love being able to do that.
My local library uses Overdrive – highly recommend your local library!
Overdrive and scribd
Audible. Great for long drives. I commute 3 hours to work a couple of times a week.
Great Kiandra!!i too wanted cheap access to e books and asked for advice!!
I only found a free reading app for android where you buy ebooks at low prices but can’t find all books j wanted!!??
I use Overdrive. You can borrow audio books from your library.

I’ve been borrowing books on cd from the library for my commute lately. I request them and pick the library across the street from my work as the hold location
