In this tutorial, I will explain how to find free version of paid audiobooks on Audible. If you’re an Audible user and love to listen to audiobooks, then you might have purchased dozens of paid audiobooks. But, what if I tell you there is a simple trick using which you can now find free version of paid audiobooks on Audible. There is actually a free Chrome extension called “Sponge“, which can help you do that with ease. After installing this extension, it will automatically find free version of paid audiobooks from the public domain, and show them to you on your Audible search. There are literally thousands of free audiobooks available in the public domain which might match with the audiobooks on Audible.
After finding the free version of paid audiobooks, you can download them to your PC for free. After that, you can use any audiobook reader software to play them. There are also many websites available using which you can download audiobooks for free. But, there is a possibility that you might not find some specific audiobooks that are only available on Audible. So, instead of purchasing audiobooks on Audible, use this simple extension to find and download the free version of those audiobooks.
