- Displays most popular audiobooks
- Forum page
AudioBook Bay offers over one thousand books. They have age, categories, category modifiers, popular language, hot search, and most popular tabs to help cut down the search for a book you are interested in. These tabs are incredibly helpful if you are not looking for a specific book, but more of a theme that may be contained inside or a specific genre. The tabs take out the books that you are not interested in and leave the ones that fit the description you are looking for available.
If you do have a specific book, author, or character you are looking for you can simply type it into the search engine and AudioBook Bay will bring up all it has that fits the description for you.
On the right side there is a list of the "Most Popular Audio Books" which displays which audio books are being chosen most often.
One thing that stands out about Audiobook Bay is their forum page. On this page, you can join in a discussion about site announcements, authors, books, bad torrents, requests, and more. It's a great place for enthusiastic readers to gather together and talk about their favorite (or least favorite) books. It's also a great place to give your feedback. Users often post about which books they would like to listen to from Audiobook Bay
- Limited selection
- Have to create an account
- No mobile app
Some audiobook sites offer much more than one thousand books so AudioBook Bay seems limited in their options. You have to create an account in order to download books. There is no cost, but you do need to give the company information which seems unnecessary since there service is free. There is also no app associated with Audiobook Bay. If you want to put audiobooks on your phone, you'll need to download them, then copy them to your phone's music program. This requires a lot more work than just opening and downloading in an app.
Like may sites that offer free content, Audiobook Bay has a lot of ads. These ads make the site look crowded and messy.
