The Audio Books Project

The Audio Books Project
Project Gutenberg makes audio eBooks available for some of the same great literature available in plain text. Our listings are divided into two categories: Human-read and computer-generated audio books. These files can be very large, so are not well suited for people using a modem or other low-speed connection. Human-read Audio Books Thanks to AudioBooksForFree.com for our Arthur Conan Doyle series of human readings, and to LiteralSystems.org for work on new readings by volunteers. We are also working with Librivox, a similar effort to get people volunteering to read.

List of Free Audiobooks This page is available on the RevTK Wiki, everyone can contribute there. Audiobooks. The creation of this list of free audio downloads was inspired by this discussion at the How To Learn Any Language Forum and copied directly from my learning log over there. I've only listed the audiobooks for which I could locate both a Japanese transcript and an English translation. For translations of works by Japanese authors I've either linked to an online source or provided a source for a commercial one. The Story of Civilization (11 Volume Set) – Will Durant, Ariel Durant (11 Audiobooks) The Story of Civilization (11 Volume Set) – Will Durant, Ariel Durant (11 Audiobooks) Publisher: Books on Tape; Unabridged | Language: English | ISBN-10: 1567310230 | Runtime: ~ 3 weeks | ~ 8.5 GBNarrator: Alexander Adams | Source: Audiocassette | MP3 @ 48 Kbps / Mono / 44.1 kHz | 3% Recovery This is a monumental work by a revered historian who writes well, reveals great insight, and is eminently quotable.

And far too many are stifled from revealing history and its lessons adequately because of the current all-consuming academic fad of political correctness.
