Free Audiobooks - Prime Reading Keeps Trying to Get Me to Sign up to Audible

I just spent an hour on an online chat with Amazon to get my free Prime Reading account set up.
That's nice and all, but I really want audiobooks and Prime Reading keeps pushing me to get Audible.
I don't want Audible - firstly because I am cheap (which is why I am here), but also because I can't stand that woman they use for their ads.
So Ozbargain crew - where do you get your free downloadable audiobooks from?

    Borrow box through the local library.
    Easy set up if you have a library card and then its all available in app.

    Only down side is wait times on some loans but not too bad as you can prebook you desired download.

    • Thanks for this. Got it set up with my local library.
      Looks like a good option.

  • Another vote for Borrow Box.
    Have since cancelled my Audible trial after using all the free credits on Audible exclusives.

    Crazy to think that it costs more to hear a book read to you than it does to watch a multi million dollar movie or TV show.

    • Money to build and launch spaceships, and finance divorce settlements doesn't grow on trees.

  • Google audio book bay.

  • which woman? Rebel Wilson?
