Get Access to Over 11,000 Audiobooks with Audible Plus


A subscription to Audible just got a whole lot more appealing! Audible has launched their brand-new all-you-can-listen-to service called Audible Plus! We’ve been hoping for something like this for a while, and now if you’re an Audible member you get access to a library of over 11,000 audio books that you can download or stream at any time! Current Audible members are automatically upgraded to Audible Premium Plus where you’ll get your one audio book credit a month and you’ll also have access to their Plus Catalog of over 11,000 audio books that you can Play and Add to your library at any time.

Here’s Audible’s press release on Audible Plus:

All-You-Can-Listen Membership Option, Audible Plus, Rolls Out in Preview

And if you browse the audio book categories on the Audible.com site you can now filter by their “Plus Catalog”, so you can see the titles you’ll be automatically getting when you become an Audible Premium Plus Member:

Browse All Audible Categories

We’ve browsed around for a few hours and noticed that most of the titles are ones published directly by Audible.com or they’re published by the large independent audiobook publisher Blackstone Audio, which appears to have offered up a hefty portion of their audiobooks on Audible Plus. I’m sure the Audible Plus catalog will change and expand over time, but it’s already very impressive!

Audible Plus is eventually going to be offered as a stand-alone subscription service for $7.95/month. But you won’t get your monthly audio book credit if you’re subscribed to only Audible Plus. And that monthly Audible credit can be applied to the hundreds of thousands of audiobooks available on Audible. If you want to dive into Audible Plus, sign up for a free Audible trial today:

300 New Nonfiction Audiobooks Free on Spotify


In recent years the popular music and podcast service Spotify has become a destination for audiobooks as well! Whether it’s self help audio programs from Made for Success, full cast plays on audio from L.A. Theatre Works, or language learning programs from Penton Overseas, you can find a lot of audiobooks to learn from. To help you discover these audiobooks we’ve put together playlists on our Spotify account which you can check out and follow here:

LearnOutLoud Playlists of Audiobooks on Spotify

After browsing around Spotify we’ve come across one large audiobook publisher that has embraced releasing titles on the platform. They’re called Dreamscape Media and you can check out all the titles they’ve published at www.dreamscapepublishing.com. In addition to being on Audible.com, Dreamscape Media has released most of the audiobooks they’ve published on Spotify, and they’ve published over 5,000 titles to date! Most of their audiobooks are in the fiction categories which we don’t really feature on LearnOutLoud (romance, mysteries, thrillers, etc.), but they’ve also published a significant number of new nonfiction audiobooks. We’ve picked out 300 of their nonfiction audiobooks and have added them to our LearnOutLoud.com Free Audiobooks Section. We’ll link directly to our title pages for these audiobooks which you can browse below where we’ve listed them all by category. Seize the day when it comes to listening to these audiobooks because you never know when the publisher might take them down. We’re still kicking ourselves over not listening to more of the Joseph Campbell lectures that were on Spotify but have now been removed. Anyway, here are 300 new nonfiction audiobooks free on Spotify courtesy of Dreamscape Media!

Note: Unfortunately Dreamscape Media took all these audio books off of Spotify for free. But if you do want some free audio books on Spotify check out this post:

10,000 Videos of Book Talks & Book Trailers Added

It took us a while, but we’ve now added over 10,000 videos to our site of book talks, author interviews, and book trailers to our LearnOutLoud.com Audio Book Downloads Section. We searched YouTube for over 40,000 audio books that we feature, and we found 10,000 videos to help you discover the next audio book you want to listen to. We’ve embedded these 10,000 videos onto our audio book pages. For instance, if you want to learn more about the book 10% Happier by Dan Harris, then on the 10% Happier Audio Book Page we’ve added a “Video About This Audio Book” with a talk Dan Harris gave at Google about his book. Browse our audio books section and you’ll find that about a quarter of the audio books we feature now have a “Video About This Audio Book” that you can learn from:

One of the best ways to learn new ideas and discover great new books is to listen to talks with the author. In the past 10 years, with the explosion of YouTube, many books feature videos with their authors discussing and summarizing the ideas in their books. These are talks at bookstores, institutions, TED talks, media interviews, or brief introductions on the author’s YouTube channel. And just like movies, many authors and publishers have also created book trailers for their latest releases. After 100s of hours of searching for the best videos about each book, we’ve embedded over 10,000 of these videos to our site.

For the past few years now we’ve been linking to Audible on Amazon.com for all of our audio book downloads. But we still strive to be a resource for finding the best educational audio books available. And even if you’re not looking to buy a new audio book, these free videos provide a wealth of educational video content from some of the best authors in the world. There are really too many great videos to list here. Dive into our audio book categories and you’ll find some great videos to go along with many popular audio books:
