I was really drawn in to the story and narration of The Sworn Brothers.

https://librivox.org/the-sworn-brothers-a-tale-of-the-early-days-of-iceland-by-gunnar-gunnarsson/

When I got to Section 11, Book I, Chapter XI I could not download the file. I first encountered this with the app, which I know is not LV. So I tried downloading it from the LibriVox site using a web browser and got a "Page Not Found" error on Internet Archive.

There appears to be something odd with the link, which has a duplicate mp3 extension embedded in it:

http://www.archive.org/download/swornbrothersearlydaysoficeland_2009_librivox/swornbrothersiceland_11_gunnarsson_12l8kb.mp3_64kb.mp3

When I follow the link in Firefox 81.0 to the error screen, the link in Firefox's address bar becomes:

https://ia801506.us.archive.org/18/items/swornbrothersearlydaysoficeland_2009_librivox/swornbrothersiceland_11_gunnarsson_12l8kb.mp3.mp3

If I modify this last link in the address bar by removing the second .mp3 and hit Enter then the correct file downloads.
