Sorry, no - we do not break copyright laws.

However, if the authors of the books died more than 50 or 70 years ago, you might get some non-Americans to record them. Try over at legamus.eu for that. But they cannot be recorded here at LibriVox.

She did suggest trying legamus.eu, if the authors died before a certain date. Do you know when they died?

I'm starting a new job on October 7! I'm so excited! :9: The downside is, even less recording time. :( But I am still around!

In that case, no one in the world can record it without breaking their country's copyright law. Sorry - you probably won't find anyone to help you.
