What is a podiobook? -- The term podiobook was coined by Evo Terra in April 2005 to describe serialized audiobooks which are distributed via RSS, much like a podcast.

Podiobook Titles.

Podiobooks FAQs

Quote:
Are these books really free? -- Yes. The serialized audio book versions we make available on our site are really free. However, these authors work very hard working on their books, and we work hard maintaining this site and paying the hosting bills. If you donate to a book, 75% of your cash goes to the author and the remainder goes to pay for hosting and bandwidth. And maybe someday, salaries for the staff. Please, be generous!

Why are authors making these versions available for free? -- Many authors do this to get exposure for their work, others do it in the hopes you’ll buy a physical copy of their current or perhaps next work in development. Still others simply do it for the sheer joy of writing. And while it’s not required, you have the option to donate money to the author of your choice. When you consider that audio books run usually twice as much as their hardcover counterparts… we hope you’ll be generous. Authors receive 75% of all the proceeds from the donations from listeners. The smaller portion goes to the maintenance and upkeep of Podiobooks.com.
Quote:
How do I listen to a book? -- Two ways, and both of them very simple:
  • Listen on your computer/device – When you find a book you want to listen to… do it. Click on any of the episode links and the episode will either download or start playing on your computer.
  • Subscribe to the book’s RSS feed – Add that feed to Google Reader, iTunes, or any other device/program that can act as a podcatcher.
What is a podcatcher? -- Put most simply, podcatchers read RSS feeds and automatically download enclosed media files (the book episodes). Some podcatchers can even move the files to your portable MP3 player automatically. Others just leave them in a folder for you to do something with later.

Will my standard RSS newsreader work? -- Probably. But you need to figure out where the downloaded audio files are going.
Quote:
Podiobooks.com goes mobile! -- We live in an on the go world. And thanks to some great partners — and a couple of super-smart developers here at home — you can now discover and listen to our collection of audio books on your mobile device!

Podiobooks has been around for a while; I stumbled across them a few years back. I believe all of Scott Sigler's books are there.
