Works for Me Wednesday - Librivox.org



I've blogged about audio books and books on tape before and how they have really enhanced our homeschool. A while back Jeff Miller, aka the Curt Jester recommended Librivox.org as a place to hear recorded books for free!

I was a little skeptical at first. We had been listening to the Harry Potter books narrated by Jim Dale and they were so wonderful I think I became a tad spoiled! Since Librivox books are recorded by volunteers I just wondered about the quality of the narration. My fears were alleviated when Sam needed to hear an audio book for school.

It took Sam two months to read To Kill a Mockingbird, and although he finally finished it, I had enrolled him in the Bravewriter's Boomerang Book series and I knew he was going to have to read a lot faster. For November the series was reading The Scarlet Pimpernel. I checked the book out of the library and then I found the LibreVox recording. He absolutely enjoyed it and spent all last Wednesday listening and reading along until he finished the book. As a busy mom, I can catch up on the book myself by listening for free on my computer whenever I get some down time.

This definitely works for me!

  1. I've posted about LibriVox before too! On our recent Thanksgiving trip, I downloaded several LibriVox books to my iPod and we listened to them in the van using a tape adapter. I've been pleased with the reading and sound quality of almost all of the books I've downloaded, though there was one I didn't finish because one of the alternating readers had some crackly feedback on all the chapters she read.

  2. The Jim Dale HPs have made my hour long commutes to and from work in downtown Baltimore heavenly.
