or your local library and overdrive, there are wide range of audiobooks and ebooks available from there

overdrive.com/

you need to setup or have a local library account, however this is free to do and in most case can be created online

wish I could find a link in HUKD to give the original poster credit (feel free to give the credit here if you know)
Thanks

No probs. Sometimes the good stuff takes a bit of finding, but it is there and so don’t give-up should you have a couple of bad ones in a row.

If you have snowflake-leanings then definitely stay away as many of these books were written 100+ years ago and the language was VERY different to today, to put it mildly! For example in Moby Dick , Captain Ahab (sp?) remarks on the ‘value’ of not turning the ship around to save his slave, should he fall overboard! Also plenty of sexist stuff as well. It is a real insight into how things were back-in-the-day, which you can’t feally get a feel for by just reading a comment in a history book. Librivox have a policy of not editing the books for the modern palette, instead delivering them in the word of the original author. This is correct in my humble opinion, otherwise you are masking history to appease the easily-offended. We need to learn from history, not pretend that it never happened. It is a bit shocking at times though.

Cheers again - I agree about keeping books in their original state. I’m looking forward to hearing them!
