Ok, hear me out here. The company Amazon donates a small percentage of all your purchase amounts to the non-profit of your choice. Since the Internet Archive basically supports LibriVox by hosting all of our recordings it would be a nice gesture to help them in their great work of preserving all knowledge for everyone... free. AmazonSmile is a mirror of Amazon and ordering through this site is no different than the regular Amazon site. But with the benefit of asking Amazon to donate a little bit to your non-profit just because they are nice. Unfortunately LibriVox is not an eligible organization but IA is so if I'm going to buy stuff, why not help them, eh?

Here is a video about how to do it. If 20 or 30 or even 100 of faithful LibriVoxers who use Amazon do this it can add up. https://youtu.be/f15izZeJWZM

My wife just gave me a "Get Better Soon" card. I'm not sick. She just thinks I should be better.

I have been using AmazonSmile for years, although for a different charity. It has paid several hundred a year. Costs you nothing.

Exactly my feelings. I was searching for a way to make donating to LibriVox easy and quick and found out it is as quick and easy as it's going to get for awhile. So then why not support IA? I polled my children and found that none of them knew about Amazon smile so thought it worth mentioning here.
