Free Fiction Audiobooks
An free fiction audiobooks (or a talking book) is a recording of a audiobooks or other work being read out loud. A reading of the complete text is described as “unabridged”, while readings of a shorter version are an abridgement.
Spoken audio has been available in schools and public libraries and to a lesser extent in music shops since the 1930s. Many spoken word albums were made prior to the age of cassettes, compact discs, and downloadable audio, often of poetry and plays rather than books. It was not until the 1980s that the medium began to attract book retailers, and then book retailers started displaying audiobooks on bookshelves rather than in separate displays.
