For those of you forced to be on the road, especially driving, who wish they could spend the time reading, you might find useful the wonderful site of Librivox.
LibriVox volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain, and then we release the audio files back onto the net (podcast and catalog). Our objective is to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet. We are a totally volunteer, open source, free content, public domain project.
It’s a very cool project. I am enjoying it and planning to download a novel to listen to during my next plane flight — it beats carrying a book around, especially when you’re planning to carry an MP3 player with you anyway!
