We originally featured LibriVox in the 10-05-2012 Scout Report, and it continues to be an excellent source of free audiobooks of public domain literature. To date, the LibriVox catalog contains more than 12,000 audiobooks (including over 1,600 non-English works) recorded by more than 9,000 volunteers. The LibriVox site is billed as an "acoustical liberation of books in the public domain." This claim proves to be true; the site provides free audiobooks of public domain works from authors such as Dickens, Chaucer, and hundreds of others to forward their mission of recording all the books in the public domain. First-time visitors can click on the LibriVox catalog to search a title or author to get started. One can also view recently cataloged titles or just elect to browse the entire catalog. The new releases area is a fun way to learn about what has recently captured the attention of the folks at LibriVox. One can even register to help record an audiobook for the site. Visitors are encouraged to sign up for the LibriVox RSS feed and to check out their interesting podcasts as well.
