Librivox - If You Love Books


Do you like the books? Do you listen to audiobooks? Then you need to know about Librivox.org

The following information is from the Librivox website:

"What We Do

LibriVox volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain, and then we release the audio files back onto the net for free. All our audio is in the public domain, so you may use it for whatever purpose you wish.

Volunteering for LibriVox is easy and does not require any experience with recording or audio engineering or acting or public speaking. All you need is a computer, some free recording software, and your own voice. We accept all volunteers in all languages, with all kinds of accents. You don’t need to audition or send us samples. We’ll accept you no matter what you sound like.

We operate almost exclusively through Internet communications on our forum, where all your questions will be answered by our friendly community. We have a flat structure, designed to let people do just what they want to do.

For more detailed information, see our FAQ.

This is an awesome volunteer supported resource, listen to the books or better yet volunteer to record. And yes I am both a listener AND a volunteer.
