Finding Free Audiobooks on YouTube: Tips and Channels
YouTube has become an exciting platform for finding free full-length audiobooks. However, it can be a bit tricky to know where and how to find them. In this article, I will show you exactly how to do that.
Public Domain Audiobook Channels
To start, it’s important to understand that there are public domain books that can be freely shared online. These books are usually the easiest to find as audiobook versions on YouTube. One popular channel for public domain audiobooks is Greatest Audiobooks. They cover all the classics and great novels from the past, such as “The Art of War,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and “Moby Dick.” Audiobooks is another channel exclusively publishing public domain books, including works by Dostoyevsky and Charles Dickens. Librivox is a larger project with its own platform and app, but they also publish some of their best classics on YouTube.
Finding More Recent Audiobooks
If you’re interested in more recent books, finding them on YouTube can be a bit trickier. Uploading full audiobooks that are not in the public domain is not strictly legal, so YouTube works to take down videos and channels that infringe copyright. However, new channels continue to pop up, uploading audiobooks on a daily basis as a way to gain quick growth.
To find more recent audiobooks on YouTube, try searching with keywords such as “full version,” “full-length,” or “free audiobook.” For example, if you’re interested in James Clear’s book “Atomic Habits,” you can search for “Atomic Habits audiobook full version.” You might be surprised by how many full-length audiobooks you can find on YouTube, including titles like “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman, “Awakening the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins, and “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss.
Other Platforms and Resources
If you can’t find the audiobook you’re looking for on YouTube, there are other platforms you can check out for free audiobook access. I have made a video about this topic, which you can find here.
Overall, audiobooks on YouTube can be a fantastic way to learn and gain knowledge. While there may be copyright battles and channels being taken down, as long as the audiobooks are available, they can be a valuable resource for many. Happy audiobook hunting!
