LEGAL Free Audio books (not torrented)

Hi there

I tend to LIKE listening to Audio books when driving a car or sitting in a train -- listening to endless music can be a real drag sometimes whatever your choice of music -- and a good audio book with an interesting plot can often make a long journey seem a LOT quicker.

Anyway this is a great source for FREE Public domain audio books -- in passable sound quality as well --64 / 128 mp3 and OGG formats

LibriVox: Search Results

I'm enjoying some of the old Edgar Rice Burroughs "Martian series" at the moment.

Cheers

I love audio books, thanks for the link. I see you can also contribute works yourself, not sure about the copyright issues regarding this ie would it be ok to read Harry Potter books and upload them.

"published before 1923"

Ohh that answers my question, wouldn't mind having a go at this though seems fun.

I used LibriVox last year when I couldn't be bothered to buy or read War of the Worlds by HG Wells. The only thing I found annoying was the constant misspronunciation of the word Woking (a town I know very well), it should be pronounced Wo (as in woke, not as in flock) and the king. I must admit because it's free I'm not that bothered about it. There is also a free iPhone app which can stream the entire library over WiFi, 3G or if you really want Edge.
