Running out of things to do while in self-quarantine? Hint: Audible, an audiobook platform has made hundreds of titles available for free during the coronavirus pandemic.

The platform said on its website, “For as long as schools are closed, we’re open.”

No log-in, credit card, or passwords are needed, anyone can check out their vast selection of titles for free. These include books read by Westworld actress Thandie Newton and Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens.

Some noteworthy titles included Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre (narrated by Newton), Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (narrated by Stephens), The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle and many children’s titles from Winnie The Pooh to Peter Rabbit.

“Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids,” added the platform.
