Audiobooks Online

I love listening to classic literature in audiobook format, especially in the summer! So I was excited when I found LibriVox -- a web site that provides audiobooks free for download. Libravox describes its mission as "acoustical liberation of books in the public domain".

Volunteer readers record themselves reading public domain books and then release the audio files onto the Libravox web site. As a result of their efforts, Libravox offers a large collection of audio files for free.

I, for one, will be downloading Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat!
