LibriVox Needs Your Help!

Have you ever listened to a LibriVox recording? If not, you may be surprised by the number of free audiobooks that are available. As of today, there are 3,197 completed audiobooks, all of them free to download and all of them in the public domain.

From the LibriVox page:

"For four-and-a-half years, LibriVox volunteers have been making audiobooks for the world to enjoy, and giving them away for free. We’ve made thousands of free audiobooks that have been downloaded by millions of people; our site gets 400,000 visitors every month. To date, all our costs have been borne by a few individuals, with some generous donations from partners. However, these costs have become too big.

"Our fundraising goal is $20,000. After we reach it, we’ll shut down our fundraising campaign. And we hope we can make it another 4.5 years without having to bother you again!"
