How to find the right story
Stories has content in six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. Use the categories menu at the top of the Discover page to choose the stories that are right for you. You can find English stories in categories like Littlest Listeners, Tween, and Literary Classics. All of our other content is grouped into categories by language. Browse through the categories or use the search function to look for books and authors you know.
How to access Audible Stories
Audible Stories can be accessed from virtually anywhere. On your computer, tablet, or smartphone, just navigate to stories.audible.com. Make sure you are using the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browsers. No login, no payments, and no strings attached.
How to continue your story where you left off
If you want to stop a story and come back to listen later, you must use the same device and browser – then you can pick up where you left off. Remember that you can only continue listening to your most recent story. For instance, if you start listening to Title A and then switch to listening to Title B, only your place in Title B will be saved. If you lose your place, you can always use the chapters or the player slider to try to find what you last heard.
