Audible is making hundreds of titles available for free to help people cope with self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
The audiobook platform announced that anyone can listen to a vast selection of its titles for free, for as long as schools remain closed. This includes books read by stars including Westworld's Thandie Newton, and Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens. There is a wide variety of education, entertainment and general-interest titles available, from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Other titles include White Fang, The Owl and the Pussycat, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Wind in the Willows. Readers include Rachel McAdams, Scarlett Johansson and Peter Dennis.
“For as long as schools are closed, we’re open," Audible says in a statement on its website. "Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.”
“[We recognise] that people are at home, in many cases with children home from school, and that stories have the power to entertain, teach and to keep minds active, alert, and engaged.”
