    Unbelievable selection of audios! I am gaining a wonderful perspective of modern day writing but also, being taken back into my childhood with Meryl Streep narrating “Charlotte’s Web”. My commute is so much richer. Thank you Libro.fm – loving your stories!

      I’m afraid the winners of those categories signed exclusive agreements with Amazon’s Audible, which prevent bookstores and libraries from offering the audiobooks. We are strongly opposed to Audible’s attempt to keep independent bookstores out of the audiobook business.
