In this list, I try to feature only stand-alone titles or books for which the entire series (or at least all earlier titles) are included in Audible Plus. So, you won’t have to worry about ending up with a book 3.5 in an ongoing series or something like that.

Sometimes, books might be removed again from the Audible Plus catalog. The following audiobooks were all included as of April 4th, 2021.
