Free Audio Books...

Postby Salmoneye » Fri Aug 08, 2008 11:34 am

I have taken to listening to a LOT of audio books when I mow and fish...

One of the best places for free (Legal!) audio books is:

www.LibriVox.org

I have gone through the Jules Verne, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle so far...

I download the 'Zip File Of Entire Book' and then unpack and play it...

Also available in OGG, but only as individual files instead of the entire book...

I know people who listen to audio books all the time, even when driving. I'd be afraid to do that--before my cataract surgery, almost 10 years ago, I would get books-on-tape--and they would put me to sleep. I'd wear the cassettes out, rewinding them, trying to find where I dozed off.

The only 'issue' I have with the site, is that some of the people really suck at reading outloud...

:roll: :wink: :roll: I've turned the mowing over to one of my sons--and it wouldn't surprise me to see him turning pages while riding the mower.
