LibriVox: Public Domain Audio Books

Acoustical liberation of books in the public domain is tag line for LibriVox.

For those unfamiliar with geek-speak, this means that you can download and listen to audio books (that are in the public domain) for free. You need a computer and an Internet connection as well. Duh.

Obviously, you won’t find the latest NY Times bestseller on this list, but check back a hundred years later and you just may.

You can also volunteer to read books and as it says on the site:

It’s easy to volunteer. All you need is a computer, some free recording software, and your own voice.

LibriVox uses the already existing Project Gutenberg as the source of the text. If you have questions, check out the FAQ .
