How to Find Kindle Unlimited Audiobooks

Audiobooks are one of the best ways to make your commute productive. They’re convenient because you can listen to them in your car, on the subway, or while you’re doing housework or running errands.

While there are a lot free audiobooks available from your local public library, music and bookstores, and online, the selection may be limited and your options may be limited to a certain branch or store. Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program allows you to instantly access a huge selection of audiobooks, which is convenient, but not so great if you’re looking for something specific. Fortunately, there are a few ways to find what you’re looking for.

Searching for the book title in the Kindle Unlimited Store on Amazon returns results for both Kindle eBooks and audiobooks. If you’re looking for a specific audiobook, type in the author’s name instead.

Besides Amazon, your local library will also offer Kindle audiobooks. Notes and highlights you’ve made in either the eBooks or audiobooks will be synced to your Amazon account as long as you’re connected to the web.

How Else Can You Find Audiobooks on Kindle Unlimited?

Beyond the apps, Kindle Unlimited also has another cool feature. You can find audiobooks from all the Audible titles that you subscribe to. After you have registered your Kindle with your Amazon account, look for the “Audiobooks” section at the bottom of the Kindle Store and you’ll find all the titles you've purchased from the Audible store on your list. You can download them all to your device and enjoy them once you are on the go.

Are All Audiobooks Free on Kindle?

Kindle Unlimited users have access to Amazon’s deep audio book library. With over 1.5 million titles, it’s possible to lose yourself for hours listening to authors you’ve always admired and developing new favorites.

A quick search on Amazon should turn up all the audiobooks you are looking for.

However, if you’re having trouble finding the Audiobook you want, try a different genre, author, narrator, or collection.

You can also search your Kindle Unlimited Search box to narrow your results.

Amazon has a handy entry for audiobooks in its Kindle Unlimited books catalog. While they’re all included, some titles may not transfer over to the Audible library. That’s because of restrictions that were put in place to prevent Audible subscribers from becoming Kindle Unlimited subscribers just to access the audiobooks.However, if you’re already a Kindle and Audible account holder, you can use the same email address to sign up for Kindle Unlimited.

Which Audiobooks Are Free with Kindle Unlimited?

Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program offers members unlimited access to more than one million Kindle eBooks and thousands of audiobooks for one monthly fee.

Here are some of the best and most popular free Kindle Unlimited audiobooks, which you can listen to free with a Kindle Unlimited membership.

How Can I Listen to Audiobooks on My Kindle Unlimited?

With the Kindle Unlimited service you can get one audiobook free each month. Aside from that, it’s possible to find good audiobook deals.

There are, however, some good deals and some hidden gems. You will find these audiobooks not under the audiobook category but under the kindle book categories. Or even better, under the free kindle books on Amazon.
