    Audible is great, I've never looked for any alternative. Would love to know if there are other app hunters would recommend.

    eBook lending for free through public libraries

    Nora ConradOwner of · Written
    I LOVE this app. The books are all free because they go through your local library system. This is the tool I use to read a book a week. I just have it hooked up to the 5 libraries near me and 90% of the books I search for are in audio format on here. Newer books take awhile to be added (just like any library) but I don't mind waiting, there are so many great choices out there.
    OverDrive has almost every audiobook on the market depending on which library you are affiliated with.

    Audible is by far the only choice but for similar alternatives, AudioBooks has thousands of FREE audio books.
