Sounds good but I hope it is not literally Alexa who is reading the books, not sure I could put up with her computer voice for too long.

I don't think I could take too many hours of her reading either! I just checked, in order of my listing above the readers are Rosamund Pike, Elija Wood and Michael Hordern.
Cheers for checking I was going to do this when I get home
You can stream these to your phone via the Alexa app and listen via headphones but this only works while using the same network that Alexa is on ie. your home wifi.

I'm sure there's some app out there that could fool Alexa to think it's always using the wifi? It may use up the phone's data but at least you'll be able to listen to these on the move like on a commute.Does anyone know of such an app?

Set up a VPN connection from your phone to your router. Most main brand routers have a web interface option that allows you to download an Open VPN profile to an Android or iOS device.
Thank you.
