National Library Week III
Who doesn't like to listen to a story, especially when it comes from a great storyteller? This is how I like to think of books on tape or recorded books as they are now called, stories being told to be by a great storyteller.
If you are a fan of recorded books as I am, you may want to check out Librivox.org.
Librivox.org is an online library of recorded books, chort stories, and poetry that you can either listen to on the web or download to your mp3 player.
From the website: "At LibriVox, volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain into digital audio (eg. mp3), and then make the audio files available to the world, for free (through our catalog, a podcast, and bittorrents)."
Since the books are in the public domain, this means that there are no "new" books, but lots and lots of classics, what a great way to catch up on all of those books you were supposed to have read in high school!
