Elyse (winesaboutbooks) The audiobook is still on Audible so not sure why it is no longer on Goodreads? It has been on Goodreads since 11/1/18 when it was a free Audible Original for November.

* Title: Stephen Fry's Victorian Secrets
* Author(s) name(s): By: John Woolf, Nick Baker Narrated by: Stephen Fry
* ASIN: B07JHFLJQB
* Publisher: Audible Studios
* Publication date: 11/01/18
* Format: Audible Audio
* Description: Legendary British comic Stephen Fry is our tour guide to the highs and the lows of Victorian society. In popular culture, the straitlaced era is portrayed as one of propriety, industry, prudishness, and piety. But scratch the surface and you’ll find haunting tales of scandal, sadism, sex, madness, malice, and murder.

"They were us in different dress and slightly different codes," says Fry, whose signature wit and whimsy are in full force in this Audible Original. Find the quirky, dark, and forbidden details and family skeletons that even the most distinguished and conventional households attempted to cover up and hide, as you listen for the humanity beyond the polished veneer of this most fascinating era.

Elyse (winesaboutbooks) If it's available on Audible it should be considered a book. They're called chapters, not episodes. If it were a podcast, it would be a podcast. You're excluding most of Audible's Original content. And Amazon owns Goodreads!

Unfortunately I'm just the messenger; the librarians group members don't have a say in the policies. If you want Goodreads to see your opinion, I recommend using the Contact Us form here:
