Free your ears.
Are you struggling to be productive during self-isolation? Then head to digital audiobook platform Audible, where you'll find hundreds of titles being offered for free throughout the Covid-19 crisis.
Aimed at children who are stuck at home due to school closures, the majority of titles fall under the kids and teens categories, though the “Literary Classics” section has plenty to keep adults entertained, too. Here, you'll find must-listens like “Paradise Lost” by John Milton, “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen, “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte, “The Picture of Dorian Grey” by Oscar Wilde, “The Tempest” by William Shakespeare and many more, all narrated by famous names like Westworld's Thandie Newton.
It's worth exploring the “Teen” section too, where you'll find titles like “The Screwtape Letters” by C. S. Lewis and learning resources like “Rapid French” by Earworms Learning. Over in the “Tween” Section, you can wrap your ears around J. K. Rowling's “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone,” while the kids section offers relaxing listens like “Winnie-the-Pooh.”
Though Audible is usually priced at US$14.95/month, no log-in, sign-up or card details are required in order to listen to these selected titles. Head here to listen.
