  • My friend Dawn (aka: ladydusk over there in the links) found a really neat site:  LibriVox, which "provides free audiobooks from the public domain."

    Everything's recorded by volunteers, meaning the quality will be
    uneven.  For instance, I'd skip the reading of Browning's "My Last
    Duchess."  How that man managed to make such a dark poem sound so
    drab, beats me, but he did.

    There's certainly a wide range of material available, from some Agatha
    Christie (public domain? really?) to - I got this straight from their
    front page - "The Romance of Rubber", courtesy of the United States
    Rubber Company.
