Audiobook Resources for Stay At Home

Well, it looks like we'll be in lockdown for another month, maybe longer, so I thought I'd start compiling a list of resources for listeners of all ages. These will be overwhelmingly free listens. If any of you find other sources, please post them and I'll add them to this list.

Feel free to discuss the resources and how you're coping.

Stay safe and happy listening

There are other free audiobook resources. Overdrive and Hoopla are good resources if your library has them. Hoopla though may or may not have audiobooks depending on what your library is allowing with Hoopla. But Overdrive does have audiobooks.

Audible is streaming Stephen Fly's version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for free to subscribers. Apparently, they have a bunch of kid's audiobooks available for streaming.
