I knew I would get your attention... :D

But the topic title is from a rather nice short review of LibriVox in the PC World:

Quote:
LibriVox, which sounds like a psychotropic drug, is an open-source community committed to converting every book in the public domain into an audio recording. They have plenty, too. They're read by volunteers, but they're quite easy to listen to and they're absolutely free.


Full text can be found here:

And here is another one from MaineToday.com. It's a longer article and also very positive:

I think we've had some people coming by the forums from that PC World article -- good to be able to read it!

And :lol: you surely did get my attention -- I was just racing over here to delete your spam. ;)

Keep that up buddy and I'll have to ban your account as a drug spammer. You've been warned. ;)
