Visit stories.audible.com from any web browser to start listening, with no need for log-ins, credit card or passwords.
A mix of education, entertainment, and general-interest titles are available, including Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (narrated by Stephens) and a huge array children’s titles.
On the site, Audible says: “[We recognise] that people are at home, in many cases with children home from school, and that stories have the power to entertain, teach and to keep minds active, alert, and engaged.”
