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.

    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.

    For Audio Books that have already been created try Jiggerbug Audio Books. They let you rent from over 25000 titles so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
