Listen to free audio books

Books LibriVox is an open source audio-literary attempt to harness the power of the many to record and disseminate, in podcast form, books from the public domain. It works like this: a book is chosen, then *you*, the volunteers, read and record one or more chapters. We liberate the audio files through this webblog/podcast every week. Subscribed! Link. You can also listen to human and computer read ones from Project Gutenberg. Link.

  1. Librivox is a terrific site and well worth checking out.

    For more classic audio literature, do check out my daily (7 day a week!) podcast, Mister Ron’s Basement at http://slapcast.com/users/revry“>http://slapcast.com/users/revry>http://slapcast.com/users/revry.
    Each day I read a short humorous piece from the public domain by some of the greatest writers of all time. It includes well known authors such as Mark Twain and O Henry, and undeservedly forgotten writers like Ellis Parker Butler, Stephen Leacock, George Ade, H. C. Bunner, and dozens more. So far there have been over a hundred and twenty five episodes of the Basement.

    Each program also includes a very short, extremely old musical introduction.
