Looking for free audiobooks?

Many busy Geneseo students may not have time to sit down and read a book, but are still interested in a good “read.” That’s where audiobooks and podcasts can help!

In addition to purchasing audiobooks from sites like Audible, Amazon, and The Audio Bookstore, you can download free audiobooks from many difererent sources. A few of these include:

  1. The Wadsworth Library , and The Monroe County Library System both offer OverDrive, a service for downloading popular digital audiobooks using your library card.
  2. LibriVox, is a website that provides free audiobooks from the public domain.
  3. Openculture provides free MP3 downloads of great works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
  4. Free Classic Audiobooks Downloads are available in mp3 and in m4b audio book format for iTunes and the iPod.
  5. free-books.org
  6. ITunes search for “podiobooks” (provides downloads to audiobooks available at podiobooks.com).
  7. Fictionwise.com has audio and ebooks, some of which are free.
  8. Mobipocket.com has audio and ebooks, some of which are free.
