> LibriVox, the free audio book project has just
> cataloged it's 1,000th book: "The Murders in the Rue
> Morgue," by Edgar Allan Poe (read by Reynard T.
> Fox).
> started in August 2005 with a simple
> objective: "to make
> all public domain books available as free audio
> books." Thirteen people collaborated to make the
> first recording, Joseph Conrad's "Secret Agent."
> Two years later, LibriVox has become the most
> prolific audiobook publisher in the world - we are
> now putting out 60-70 books a month, we have a
> catalog of 1,000 works, which represents a little
> over 6 months of *continuous* audio; we have some
> 1,500 volunteers who have contributed audio to the
> project; and a catalog that includes Jane Austin's
> "Pride and Prejudice," "Moby Dick," Darwin's "Origin
> of the Species," "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,"
> Einstein's "Relativity: The Special and General
> Theory," Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason," and other
> less well-known gems such as "Romance of Rubber"
> edited by John Martin. We have recordings in 21
> languages, and about half of our recordings are solo
> efforts by one
> reader, while the other half are collaborations
> among many readers.
> We are always looking for new volunteers! Come join
> us.
