Audiobooks On Spotify

Yes, at some point I knew already that one can find audiobooks on Spotify, but it obviously has slipped my mind and I simply haven’t had it on the radar anymore. This post on Open Culture with Classics on Spotify sure brought it back to my attention1. It is a very good list, but at the moment I’m only interested into a few of them2.
The list though got me searching for other audiobooks on Spotify and after a little bit of further digging, I found some more, and at least to me, more interesting books.

Audiobooks

J.R.R.Tolkien – The Hobbit
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Also I found a lot of material by H.P.Lovecraft.

H.P.Lovecraft:

Tales of Horror
The Dunwich Horror & The Thing On Your Doorstep
The Whisperer in Darkness
The Call of Cthulhu & Other Stories
Imprisoned with the Pharoahs & Other Stories
The Shadow over Innsmouth

I was surprised by the amount of works by H.P.Lovecraft and have to admit that I am not familiar with his work at all. This will probably change soon.

The experience is of course not quite the same as listening in a dedicated audiobook player, since important features like bookmarks are naturally missing, but that of course doesn’t matter much. I will continue to look for audiobooks on Spotify and maybe one day a Spotify for Audiobooks comes around. But until then, there is a lot to listen to.


  1. It also let me to find something very different and unexpected, of which you can read in this post 
  2. The H.G.Wells and Dracula one though are intneresting. The latter one is read by Dracula, erm Christopher Lee, himself, which is of course nice.
