Most of the time, books download as MP3 files (or sometimes WMA or AAC files) that can play on your computer, tablet, phone, iPod, or MP3 player. There are free audio converter software programs you can use if you need the audiobook to be in a different file format.
There are lots of other websites that offer free audiobooks that you can download through torrent websites. However, you should know that while that method of sharing books (or anything, like music and movies) may seem completely fine, it's normally illegal in most countries and is typically considered an unsafe method for sharing files since it's a common way to transmit malware.

First, to read electronic books, you can certainly use a dedicated ebook reader, such as an Amazon Kindle, a Barnes & Noble Nook, or a Kobo. But you can also turn your tablet or PC into an ereader with the Kindle app, the Nook app, and the Google Play Books app, among other programs. For convenience, an Apple iPad or an Android tablet serve as handy devices for reading ebooks in bed, on the couch, or outdoors. Further, you can listen to audiobooks on your smartphone or tablet, computer, smart home speaker, or MP3 player.
Further, you can borrow ebooks and audiobooks from your local library and read them via apps like Libby, Overdrive, Hoopla, and even Kindle. But those you naturally have to return after a couple of weeks. Instead, here are 10 places where you can get free ebooks and audiobooks.

Audiobooks are available as MP3 or Apple M4B files, however, downloading them requires a VIP plan.
Simple type the word free in the Search field to peek at all the free titles. You can then check out the freebies by category or subject.

For starters, Littérature audio (Audio Literature) claims to have over 8,000 French audiobooks for free download on its website. Many of the books are in the public domain, meaning that they were written so long ago that the copyright has expired and they can be hosted and downloaded at no cost. You can also find some modern audiobooks there as well as translations of popular audiobooks from other languages.
While not as expansive, there are other websites where you can find free French audiobooks. These include Bibliboom and Librivox, a website that uses volunteer native speakers of French for its collection of 800 free audiobooks. There is also Audiocite that hosts not only romans (novels) but also an array of non-fiction books for voracious French readers.
Last but not least, free French audiobooks can be found on YouTube! There are many individual French audiobooks that you may be lucky to find if you search the French book by title, and there are even a few playlists such as this one by Guarda ora to keep you going.
*Romance can be hit or miss. People love listening to them, but romance readers often read so much that the cost of audiobooks becomes too great. However, there are subscription services that make this more viable. Longer romance novels are also great for audio.
Most narrators will record a free sample from your book if you ask politely. Have several narrators read the same excerpt, then select your target audience in PickFu and have them judge between the different narrators.
Findaway Voices is a third-party site that lets you create your audiobook with their own list of narrators, but will also distribute your book to most of the other audiobook platforms out there, for a small cut of the profits.
Keep in mind that if you choose to be exclusive to ACX, while it does result in higher royalties, you will be locked into a contract with them for seven years, and will not be able to distribute your audiobooks anywhere.
Promotions have traditionally been a staple of eBook marketing since the beginnings of BookBub, but there are not as many such promotional services for audiobooks, primarily because Audible has not allowed authors to discount their books.
If you are exclusive to ACX, they will give you several giveaway codes. If you give one of these codes to an audiobook listener, they will be able to download a free copy of your audiobook so they can leave you a reaview.
This kind of shorter audio work can also work in a podcast format, allowing people to get a free glimpse of what you do. Doing this could get readers hooked, so they will hopefully buy your longer works next.

Audible has two membership options. The classic one-credit-a-month plan, known as Audible Premium Plus, will let you choose a title in their library to keep and listen to any title they have.
