Resources

resc

The number one question I get asked is “Where do you go to find audiobooks?” The top three audiobook resources I use, and thus refer people to, are Audible (paid), Scribd (paid), and Overdrive (free). There are plenty more available, most of which I have yet to try firsthand, but I’m working on it.

Tip: Look for the title you want, in right format (CD, cassette, or digital), for the best price. Don’t forget to factor in shipping costs for CDs & cassettes. Also, make sure CDs are in the format you want (MP3 CD vs. standard CD).
