librevoxLibriVox, the free public domain audiobooks website, has received a “major facelift” thanks to donations and a grant. You can now browse free audiobooks by AuthorTitleGenre/Subject and Language.

The site now counts 7,000 projects, recorded by dedicated volunteers around the world. Follow this link to visit the new and improved site:

In 2005, Hugh McGuire asked: “Can the net harness a bunch of volunteers to help bring books in the public domain to life through podcasting?” The LibriVox site has recently undergone a major facelift, making it far easier to browse and find great public domain audiobooks. In addition, the underlying software that helps thousands of volunteers contribute to LibriVox has been completely rebuilt. This rebuild project was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and donations from the public.
