      Here are some apps and websites you can hear Chinese Audiobooks in     Chinese:

凤凰FM / 56听书网 / 懒人听书 (website/apps)/ K酷听听书天方听书网

Pick a novel and google to see if you can find a transcript for the         audiobook you are interested. You will be surprised to find that you can find many transcripts for the audiobooks you are interested.  One way to improve your reading in Chinese is to hear the language and read along with the transcript. First, listen to it a few times with the script until you can understand what is said. Then try to listen to it without reading. Here are the audiobooks with a transcript I have found on line:
