Mike says:
The Kindle Unlimited seems like a terrific idea. I download a lot of books from Audible and have been happy with the service. Unfortunately, shopping for an audio book on Kindle Unlimited is a huge challenge. The books seem to be listed randomly and I can't easily find a way to sort by Genre or Author. Alas.

Mike - Ask in the KARD thread. If anyone knows how to do it, those folks do.

In addition to Pineapple's astute reply above, you can also browse the KU books with narration at:

Here they are .... just narrow down by genre

Thanks for the link, Ed.

How odd.... I went to your link and found a HUGE difference... your link only has:

Books with Narration in Kindle Unlimited
Kindle eBooks (2,160)
Kindle Singles (75)
Kindle Short Reads (108)

Refine by
Whispersync for Voice

Whispersync for Voice Whispersync for Voice (2,145)

Whereas my link has nearly 7,400 whispersync books for KU. ......

Hmm. That is odd. I see the same thing. I think they still have a lot of glitches to iron out.

I agree!!! Would love for them to post an announcement in the forums on HOW this all works etc ... links to things etc. Would be far more helpful than 10K threads and the "unpaid" helpers getting frustrated!

I think that might have something to do with this little caveat from Amazon:

"Some Kindle Unlimited books have Whispersync for Voice upgrades that are not free. Only titles that include "with narration" are free."

So while the ebook may be available for KU, the audiobook companion (while available) may not necessarily be offered for free.

Wonder why books that I just look at appear in my library? Some are books that get charged to my account. It did not even say buy. This will be an on going problem and will sour me on the whole unlimited thing. Also. It seems as if only the cheaper books are free. Any input?
