I am one of those who only can continue my learning if I have something moving me forward
so even though I am a beginner in french I base my learning on a book I am reading
together with the audiobook. I also watch a lot of movies at least dubbed to french and
listen to much music in french. All to get my ears used to the language which makes it
easier for me with the reading, writing and talking in the language.

I would like to do the same with esperanto but there is not so much material out there is
it? So what do you use for input? What do you read in esperanto? And what do you listen
to in esperanto?

I have to admit it's a big reason why I dropped Esperanto.
Also, in the beginning I tried to experiment with the sentence method (because there are a lot of Esperanto sentences with translations online), but I realized it was easier to just learn the grammar, as there are so few rules.

You can find a lot of audio with the lessons at

For podcasts, try these:
3ZZZ Esperanto archive
Radio Verda
The podcast from the Esperanto radio station Muzaiko

There are also a lot of Esperanto videos on YouTube, like the Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo series meant for beginning Esperanto learners.

EDIT: Another page that I found with some Esperanto media (but written in Esperanto).

There's a ton of music in Esperanto; searching for 'la perdita generacio' or 'vinilkosmo' or 'pafklik' on youtube should be enough to get you started with related video links, etc. Similarly, as kujichagulia said, check out Muzaiko - it has a fairly wide range of music, so if it's not to your taste at some point, try again half an hour later and then use youtube to find more stuff you like. For subtitles, check out; a few of the movies have Esperanto audio.

Esperanto literature is quite rich. You can find various books online (including at Project Gutenberg), or buy them from amazon or UEA. If you want to maximize the chance of finding something you'd like, browse the "Concise Encyclopedia of the Original Literature of Esperanto" by Geoffrey Sutton.

There are Esperanto audiobooks, but I'm yet to hear one I'd happily recommend. You may be better off with podcasts.

In general, there's way more in Esperanto than you'd expect: it's just that most of the online stuff isn't centralized and it can be a bit hard to find as a beginner.
