Free audiobooks in spanish human voice
For these people and for those who want to enjoy good stories while doing domestic activities, such as cleaning the house or doing gymnastics, or for those who simply want to recover a pleasure that is generally enjoyed only during childhood, there is a very valuable alternative: audiobooks. That is, the recording of stories read aloud by other people and that can be listened to whenever you want.
Among the most popular platforms that market these products are Storytel, Audible (belonging to Amazon), Audioteka and Sonolibro. But there are also sites and applications that allow you to access audiobooks for free. Below is a list of ten options.
Before explaining how to download podcasts or audiobooks on Audible, let’s go over some details about Amazon’s service: on which devices we can use Audible or download books on Audible, how much it costs to listen to audiobooks or how we can try it for free.
You can also have Audible on Alexa if you have an Echo device, whatever model you have. Just tell it “Alexa, read Alice in Wonderland” or control playback and reading with commands like “Alexa, what audiobooks do I have?” or “Alexa, read faster”, “Alexa, turn the page”. And automatically the speaker will start playing the content and reading it anywhere.
The Audible subscription is priced at €9.99 per month but you can get three months of Audible free if you’re an Amazon Prime customer or 30 days of Audible free if you’re not an Amazon Prime customer but sign in with your Amazon account. Once those three months or 30 days free are over you will not be able to enjoy them months later again.
