Site of the Week: Books Should Be Free (free audio books)

If you know of any useful websites or perhaps run one yourself, feel free to recommend it. If I find your site suitable for my weekly feature then I will do my utmost to accommodate it. In return I might merely ask that you link to my blog. But please (and I mean this in the politest possible terms) do not ask me to advertise your commercial service.

About a month ago, I chose as “Site of the Week” a digital archive of copyright free books. This week’s offering Books Should Be Free, is a similar resource for audio books with an ever-expanding archive of material that you don’t have to pay for. Free stuff is always good!

The interface is simple with categories to browse at your own leisure including a “Top 100” section. In each case, click on the title and you are presented with a list of download options and several formats depending on the device you wish to use. Each book also has wiki links to details on the author, the book itself and other trivia.

You can also stream from Librivox, a volunteer website archive of audio books, poems and short stories.

    1. Glad I could be of help. As I say on my “about” page, my site of the week feature is about making sure I use StumbleUpon wisely. If one person finds one site useful then I guess I’m achieving that aim šŸ™‚
