Librivox

Like Project Gutenburg, this weblog provides the out-of-copyright books for free but this time as audio files, read by volunteers and recorded on on mp3/ogg vorbis that can be downloaded for free. Quality is regulated by volunteers.

Any book that is in the public domain can be recorded and posted here. Already some of the classics have been done – Northanger Abbey and Pride and Prejudice to name but two – and poetry such as Shakespeare’s Sonnets are already up there.

I’m sure this project will continue to grow – the catalogue is added to continuously. Take a look at what’s available – consider becoming a reader!
