Welcome to the AudiBoi forum!

BEFORE MAKING A REQUEST:

First, be sure the book isn’t already uploaded.
Use the search box at https://audiboi.com.
Search by a few words in the title, or the author’s name.

If you do find a book, but you can’t listen or download report it to Broken link section.

If you’re sure the book isn’t already uploaded, then:

Second: check if there is an existing request thread.

Go to the “Forum Home” and search. If there is a unsatisfied request, you may bump it (add a “Me too!”, etc. — but if the request has been archived ((put in “Fulfilled” or “Unfulfilled”)) you should start a new request).

If there is no open request, you can make a new request:

HOW TO MAKE A REQUEST

Open a request in an appropriate subforum. Choose one forum only; do not spam copies in multiple subforums.

TOPIC TITLE: Title and Author — must be precise — and check they are correct.

BODY: here give a link that shows the audiobook you want. The publisher usually and whatever description you like. — DO NOT use link redirects (e.g. goog.gl); and you can delete the referrers text after the ASIN in an Amazon or Audible link). —
Then click Request! to post it.

When you create a new request, open it and click “NOTIFY” at the top or bottom, and select ” Notify me of follow-up replies via email“.
Then you will get an email alert if anyone responds (even weeks or months later).
(Make sure that emails from the forum can get through to you and are not blocked as spam).

Notes
The links must show that the requested books exist in audio format and where they are available.

(E.g., give the publisher’s product page for the book.)

Requests for unreleased audiobooks are only allowed if Audible (or other sites) has a release date set within a day or two.
Include the date and the link to the publishers webpage for the audiobook.
