100 Best Librivox Audiobooks from the Past 5 Years

We've recently gone through the last five years of audio book recordings on the free audio books site Librivox.org. The volunteer narrators there have been busy recording over 4,000 titles since we last updated them on our site back in 2014. We will be adding a number of these free audio books to our site soon. For today we've attempted to pick the best of the best in terms of interesting audio books with high quality recordings. Most of these are solo narrations (as opposed to the group narrations with many narrators). For the first 50 audio books we're featuring here, they are not on our site yet so we're linking directly to Librivox. For a few of these titles it's the first time they've ever been on audio book! Enjoy these top recent Librivox recordings:
