These are the top audiobooks on Audible for 2017

Audible, the world’s largest seller and producer of streamable and downloadable audiobooks, recently shared its top 10 most-listened-to books of the year.


Audible, the world’s largest seller and producer of streamable and downloadable audiobooks, recently shared its top 10 most-listened-to books of the year.

The most-listened-to titles include four books from the Harry Potter series, including “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”

All Harry Potter books are narrated by Jim Dale, an English actor and narrator.

“Ready Player One,” which will soon be adapted into a film, sits at the No. 5 spot on the list.

“Our millions of members are incredibly passionate about outstanding listening experiences, so we are delighted to showcase the audiobooks they engaged with most this year,” Audible EVP and Publisher Beth Anderson said in a press release. “Congratulations to all of these titles, and the fine authors, performers and publishers who have brought them to life in audio.”

Though the Audible application has gained listeners more recently because of the rise in popularity of audiobooks, the company began in 1997. Two decades later, the average Audible member downloaded close to 17 books this year.
