Amazon Prime Audiobooks Free for Prime Members

Amazon Prime audiobooks are basically the list of free Audible books that are available for Prime members. The members get access to a rotating selection of more than 50 audiobooks which they can listen to by streaming online.

However, the Prime members do not have any control over which Audiobooks will be available as Amazon Prime free Audiobooks. The titles are selected by Audible itself and are changed from time to time on a rotation basis.

Update 1 : Currently, Amazon is offering Audible membership at just $6.95/month instead of $14.95/month to new Audible members on first 3 months. This is a limited-time offerHere’s the link to this offer page.

Update 2: Amazon is also offering 3 Free Audiobooks to new Audible members (Those who haven’t taken the free trial before) during the free trial. You will get 1 Audiobook of your choice and 2 from the Audible Originals! You can keep those books for lifetime, even if you cancel your trial membership!

For offline listening, you need to have an Audible membership. You can take Audible’s 30-day free trial, and get 1 free Audiobook of your choice, provided you have not taken the free trial before. You can cancel your membership anytime and you will not be charged during the free trial!

How to access Amazon Prime Audiobooks?

Currently, there are 57 Amazon Prime audiobooks available for the Prime members. But the problem is that it is not very clear on how you can access those free books. Besides, you can listen to them only through the Audible app and not on the Audible website.

To get access to Amazon Prime free Audiobooks, first, download the Audible App and log in using your Amazon details. And of course, you need to be an Amazon Prime member to access these free Audible books.

After you log in to your Audible App, click on the menu icon on the upper left corner of the home screen. (The example shown below is for Android. The interface may look different in iOS devices)

    1. Hi Laurel. The books don’t change that often. Most of the books have not changed for over a year now. However, there is no fixed day for that to happen. It is very much possible that the book you are listening to today, might change tomorrow! But the probability is very low. I hope that helps!

    1. Hi Lashawn! You will get 2 free books of your choice. And two Audible originals which are preselected Amazon choices. So, basically you get 4 free books. during your free trial!

    1. Subodh Sharma

      Hi Elizabeth. In the article above, I have explained the steps that you need to follow to listen to free Amazon Prime audiobooks. This is based on Prime members on Amazon.com.
      If you don’t see the free audiobooks for some reason, please contact Amazon customer care.

  1. BEWARE!!!!!

    I had all these channels and audiobooks as a prime member, but as soon as i became an audible member, the audiobooks/channels were gone! I’ve let audible know about this and they will get back to me tomorrow.
    It isn’t worth getting the audible deal if they remove my free prime audiobooks.

    1. Subodh Sharma

      Yes, Amin. You are right. I have mentioned that in the article as well, that the option for Audible channel for Prime won’t show up if you are an Audible member!
      So, you can try listening to the free books first before subscribing to Audible membership.

      1. Subodh Sharma

        Not exactly a fix, but here’s what you can try if you do not wish to start a paid membership:
        Start your free trial, get the 2 audiobooks of your choice and then cancel your membership. Once you cancel your membership, you will again start seeing the Audible for Prime option (you are still a prime member). But now, apart from the free prime audiobooks, you will see those two audiobooks in your library. (Yes, those books will be there for lifetime unless you delete them)
