Featured Article: The Best Audiobooks Under 7 Hours


Have some time to spare? All of the audiobooks on this list come in under seven hours, so they’re perfect for a single-session binge or a multi-day journey. While some may say the longer the book the better, we believe there is a lot of value in short audiobooks. Some of the best nonfiction is short and powerful, while short sci-fi stories and fantasy novels are just the thing when you want to escape the world but don't have time to get absorbed in a 30-hour tome. Time and attention spans are short these days, so we've got you covered with some of the best audiobooks under seven hours across multiple genres.
