Books should be Free: Three Sources of Free Legal Audio Books

Several years ago, I got hooked on Audio Books. While my commute to work is not very long, it might be quite unpleasant due to the occasional bad traffic. But now, in a company with good book, even light morning traffic jam is not so annoying. As you think in the evening about interesting book, waiting on the pillow, the same way you will be expecting to get in the car to continue the new audio book journey.

If you love to read books, but do not have time, audio books are the nice alternative. It may not replace the book, as the genre is slightly different, and the book perception is largely depends on the reader.

There are multiple resources on the Web offering you free and commercial opportunities to download all kinds of books recorded as audio files. Not all of them are strictly legal, so you if are law obedient citizen of the virtual world, you still may enjoy really free audio files from web sites, who offer classic and other recorded books whose copyrights have expired, including many works from popular writers as Jane Austen, Edgar Allen Poe, H.G. Wells, Ayn Rand and more.

In this post, I would like to present three featured web sites, offering free legal audio books for downloading:

  1. Librophile (
Librophile offers a simple interface for finding audio books and eBooks for further review and downloading. You can browse the latest books, search by keywords or choose more broadly by genre. You can often listen to chapters online, download a whole book, play a sample or subscribe using iTunes.

  1. Books Should be Free (
Books Should be Free – website dedicated to offer its visitors free downloading of audio books from the public domain in mp3, iPod, or iTunes format. Public domain means that no one holds a copyright on these books and therefore anyone including is free to distribute them.

  1. Project Gutenberg
Project Gutenberg makes audio eBooks available for some of the same great literature available in plain text. The listings are divided into two categories: Human-read ( and computer-generated ( audio books. Definitely, the computer-generated voices used in these books are similar to those on automated systems used by the blind, as well as some telephone automation systems, and not as pleasant as human voices, but these books are still free… And there are no late fees…
