Audiobooks for Free

I enjoy listening to books on my mp3 player whilst cooking or working in the garden. Today I came across a site named Librivox, which provides readings of books in the public domain for free. You will be surprised how many there are. Also – if you think that you have a reasonable reading voice, you can volunteer to read a book for the site.

Never really liked Jane Austen when I was at school – more of a Raymond Chandler type – thought I’d give it another try.
