Best of LibriVox

Along with it being our fifth anniversary, we have also reached our 1000th Free Resource of the Day Email. And for this free resource we wanted to do something special, so we've just added 1000 new free audio books from LibriVox. LibriVox.org is a great site which brings together volunteers to read books in the public domain that they then offer as free audio book downloads on MP3.

The last time we added titles from LibriVox was over two years ago and since then they have grown enormously with over 2500 titles now available. We sifted through all their audio books and picked out the best titles based on literary merit, quality of narration, and how interesting they sounded. The narrators and recording quality have definitely improved with great new readers like Cori Samuel and Mike Vendetti. For many of the major classics they have multiple versions now so we've chosen what sounds like the best edition. We've also added the podcast feeds of the all audio books so you can listen to and download them all through our site. To download zips, subscribe through iTunes, get the eBooks, see chapter headings, and more click on the links over to LibriVox.

Before you dive in please note that LibriVox is calling for donations to help them with the operating costs of their site so please do if you're able to. We've kicked off our contributions with a $100 donation. Keep LibriVox alive by donating today:
