After the recent series of posts focused on the difficulties surrounding e-books, I thought that our readers deserved some good news. Something exciting. Something that works. And something that is--free. To users at least.

Free audio books. It's true. LibriVox-- free audio books of materials that are in the public domian. Readings are provided by volunteer readers. Jane Austen, Jack London, Mark Twain, Saki, and many many other writers are available. Readings can be downloaded to your computer and burned to audio CD.

This is the Internet at its best. Happy 4th everyone!
