Check out LibriVox, a new project that uses volunteers to record themselves reading public domain books, and then offer them as free downloadable audiobooks (as podcasts). Currently, the only freely accessible audiobooks online are read by electronic voices (verrrrry tiresome after 5 minutes). This is a great project, and a wonderful example of volunteer efforts at work on the web.

One thought on “LibriVox

    hi there, one hope we have at librivox is that libraries might embrace the project, and say claim an entire book and then produce all the audio chapters from volunteers within their community… any takers?
