I would like to recommend a couple of books by Karel Čapek. I haven't been able to find an old enough English translation. But the original czech could be recorded.

R.U.R. is on gutenberg and famous for being the first introduction of the word Robot.

This work had been mentioned in the past, and we did locate an English translation which we were able to get cleared through Project Gutenberg. The thread begins here: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=77136#77136

The link to the cleared text is here: http://www.planetmonk.com/dramageeks/scripts/rur.pdf

Thank you so much for that I am going to start an official suggestion with that approved translation. Hopefully it will get enough excitement.
