thanks guys...give them love, and maybe think about reading a book or short story for them yourself FBx

Quality can vary bit, but there are some superb renditions of classic books. Those that are maybe less slick in delivery can be quite charming, a credit to the volunteers and always interesting. Great to get a heads up about this brilliant site, thank you.

astounded there are still people who dont know about librivox! yep the standard of reading can vary wildly so have a listen to the samples before choosing a download. But hey its free and you might fancy reciting a book yourself, why not? heat!

Not a deal, always this price.*

Not at all. My experience is that a professional actor or actress reading an audio book will usually bring the story alive, a monotone but eager member of the public can often kill it dead. I've tried Librivox a few times and whilst well meaning, the amateur narrators aren't up to the standard of Audible. Some sound as though they are reading the phone book.
