    My local libraries (Lincolnshire) use RB Digital for online magazines, use it for The Economist.

    Local libraries normally offer free ebooks, audiobooks and magazines to download.

    I usually listen to podcasts on Spotify, but it helps if you know what you're looking for. 

    Project Gutenberg has thousands of free ebooks online - mostly classics where copyright has expired. I often find free classics on the Apple bookstore too. 

    If you're into politics or sociology, there are some very good free (or very cheap) eBooks on Verso.

    You need to have a library membership and there’s loads of books on here as well not just magazines. Plenty of top authors as well but you do have to queue for the popular books. Excellent site though especially at the moment with libraries closed.

    I receive an email every day from www.kindofbooks.com, I chose which genre I wanted to know about and most are free and some are 99p. I've been getting them for years from this company and can highly recommend. If I want a book I click get deal, it then takes me straight to Amazon, from there the book goes to my Kindle App on my Adroid tablet.

    I joined NetGalley a little while back and can request early copies of new books for free. I just have to write a short review of the book on NetGalley and share on Amazon once it is released. Has really helped to bump up my reading list

    I go to  https://wirelesstheatrecompany.co.uk which has a huge range of full cast audio dramas, as I love those even more than narrated audio books. They are all free.
