VPN users blocked (Update 4)
As reported by several users, ABB has started to block users tunneling their traffic through a VPN. Alternatively, there are a handful of proxy sites to access ABB anyway.
Audiobook Bay official URL and proxy (Update 3)
ABB’s former domain audiobookbay.nl is still active but can’t be accessed from every country. Working Audiobook Bay proxies are listed here.
Audiobook Bay down for visitors in some countries (Update 2)
Visitors from various countries are blocked from accessing Audiobook Bay’s torrent site audiobookbay.nl. Several social media reports suggest that the site can be visited from the US and European countries. People using a VPN can check through other locations to find a server from where Audiobook Bay can be accessed.
Like other blocked sites audiobookbay.nl can be unblocked and fully accessed by using a VPN service. A VPN hides the visitor’s real IP address and geo location. VPN users can choose from a huge selection of VPN server locations worldwide to access a blocked website.
Audiobook Bay is currently accessible from:
Audiobook Bay is down/blocked in:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
Please let us know in the comments from where you can access audiobookbay.nl and from where it seems to be blocked.
Audiobook Bay’s new domain audiobookbay.nl (Update)
The audio book torrent site ABB has switched to a new domain: audiobookbay.nl. ABB’s old URL audiobookle.com and latest main URL audiobookbay.la do now redirect to the new .nl domain.
Audiobook Bay (ABB) offers audiobook torrents in many languages and sorts it’s content in many categories. It also runs a forum containing a section for audiobook requests. The torrent site requires that one register an account in order to see the full torrent magnet links.
The torrent site cites a definition of audio books on their pages as follow:
An audiobook is a recording that is primarily of the spoken word as opposed to music. While it is often based on a recording of commercially available printed material, this is not always the case. It was not intended to be descriptive of the word “book” but is rather a recorded spoken program in its own right and not necessarily an audio version of a book.

Yes the web link is not working, don’t know why. I love this website!
Where did it go?
they have a new domain (audiobookbay.nl). Audiobookbay.la redirects to the new URL. BUT the website seems to be blocked in some countries. US is working for example.
Im in the US and it’s not working for me
I am in the US… Nada. Thanks for the reply charles.
Audiobookbay.nl appears to be blocking VPN users.
Using 2 vpn services and none will work, despite using different vpn servers in various countries.
The work-around is a Big hassle…
1. Don’t use VPN and visit the website
2. Download the torrents you want
3. Turn on your VPN
4. Open the torrents and begin downloading
There’s NO other way around it AFAIK.
Contacted audiobookbay.nl’s admin and he said to check YOUR ISP and VPN service. There’s nothing on his end or his ISP provider’s end, SUPPOSEDLY!
Looks like audiobookbay.nl’s ISP is blocking VPN users!

The ONLY reason for a site like this to block VPN tunneled traffic is to log IP addresses. Do NOT use a proxy to access this site, they are likely controlled by the site owners and also logging your IP. Odds are they’ve been taken over or paid off by a corporation or industry body.
It is accessible from Denmark
I currently use expressvpn and I can access it, although not when I’m connected through usa, canada, nz etc. I’m currently accessing it through Indonesia and it’s working fine.
