Websites To Download Free Audio Books

Websites To Download Free Audio Books | technologies | Scoop.it

As I'm sure you are all aware, audiobooks are recordings of books which are read aloud.

 

Why would we need audio books if we can read books ourselves?

 

Audio books can be listened to via audio devices while travelling or commuting to work.

 

Audio books are useful for...
- the visually impaired,
- learning a new language to ensure you don’t pronounce a foreign phrase wrongly because you can listen to exactly how it is spoken.
- busy people who love a good read, but just don’t have the time to sit down to bury their faces in their favorite classics.

 

This post provides a list of 20 websites where everyone can download free audio books.
