How to read Spare for freeon January 20, 2023 at 11:50 Tech Advisor


Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir Spare has been flying off the shelves since it first launched. The book is packed full of details about his life growing up in a royal household, and also charts his journey to meeting his wife, Meghan Markle.

If you’d like to get your hands on a digital copy, but don’t want to pay for one, then there is a way. Here is everything you need to know.  

How to download Spare for free on Audible 

The best way to get Spare at no cost is to sign up for a free trial of Audible, Amazon’s audiobook service.  

Get spare for free on audible

The audiobook is narrated by Prince Harry himself, so you can hear the story in his voice.

Audible is available on iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Kindle devices, so there are plenty of ways to listen to Spare

Just download the app, sign in, and Spare should be located in the section called ‘Library’

If you don’t want to pay anything, then make sure you can cancel your account before your 30-day free trial is over by going into the ‘Account Details’ section and continuously clicking ‘Cancel Membership’.  

This can be confusing, so we have more details in our guide of how to cancel Audible. If you are interested in continuing your membership, an account costs $14.95/£7.99 per month after the free trial ends.

Is Spare available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited, or as a free e-book? 

At the time of writing, Spare is not available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited, so subscribers of this service will still have to pay for the e-book, which is currently priced at $17.99/£13.99. You also must have an active Amazon Prime account for this.  

This means that if you want to own the book for free, you will only be able to get it as an audiobook. Of course, there are benefits to listening to the memoir. You can tune in on your commute, when you’re out and about walking, or even when you’re cooking dinner.
