Soundcloud is a popular audio sharing platform typically used for podcasts or music. Users can easily record and upload their own audio using the app or via the website. You could record yourself reading a section of a book, or you could even write and record your own ending for a book. Another idea is to record a discussion about the characters or scenes in the book. Two great features of Soundcloud are that:

  • the audio is shown as a waveform so you can visually see your audio;
  • you can annotate/comment on your audio, this is useful for marking chapters or other information.
