Listening books (Ljudbok) in Swedish!

Hejsan alla,

I was looking for additional listening exercises to practise Swedish. A friend told me about the listening books of Narnia, all available on YouTube. For instance this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=172F5keUJMQ (C.S. Lewis - Narnia: Häxan och Lejonet (Ljudbok) ). There are other Narnia books available as well. I don't know if this was already posted at some point, but I thought I'd share :) If you know any other listening books, movies, music, whatever: please post in the comments! Tack :)

Enjoy!

There are 25 books for Swedish on librivox - not many, but it could be a lot worse! https://librivox.org/search?primary_key=58&search_category=language&search_page=1&search_form=get_results

Hopefully this is helpful to someone. I think everything there should be public domain, so it shouldn't be too hard to find the text to read along with. I'm listening to the first one now, the reading is very clear and easy to follow along with :)

Hi, I've just stumbled upon this page when searching for books I can listen to in Swedish. What I like is that they pronounce it real slow so I can follow along reading what's on screen. My issue as a beginner is with the fact Swedish people are really fast talkers :)) https://swedish-for-all.se/larresurser-learning-resources/ljudbocker-audio-books/ Hope this helps, at last absolute beginners like me :)

Thanks so much for the link! I am trying the LR method for reading and listening comprehension so finding a book that is also in English is great. I gave you a Lingot I appreciated it so much :)
