Public Domain Audiobooks

There are quite a few sources out there for public domain audiobooks. The major source is LibriVox. Since these recordings are done by volunteers, the quality runs the gamut from poor to quite good.

WARNING -- public domain laws vary from country to country and it's up to the person wishing to download these titles to make sure that it's legal for them to do so.
MobileRead Policy
Quote:
Links, Uploads, Copyright and DRM

Links to sites that violate copyright are forbidden and will be deleted. URL shortening services may not be used.

MobileRead does not condone or support the use of this web site to break the law. This means that we will not allow posting of instructions showing someone how to break the law, requests for such instructions, nor uploads or links to items that have the sole purpose of breaking the law.

EBooks uploaded to this site must be in the "life+70" public domain, or licensed under a compatible Creative Commons license. This means that the author (or translator) of the book must have died at least 70 years before the start of the current year. It is up to the individual to determine whether any particular eBook on MobileRead is legal to download in their country.

Our guidelines regarding sexually explicit content also apply to eBooks uploaded to this site.

While DRM removal may be discussed in the abstract, the following are not allowed at MobileRead:
  • discussing DRM removal to pirate content;
  • providing detailed how-to instructions;
  • uploading of DRM-removal tools;
  • direct download links to DRM-removal tools.
Further information on our policy on copyright, uploads and DRM can be found here.

Policy

MobileRead does not condone or support the use of this web site to break the law. This means that, to the extent possible, we will not allow posting of instructions showing someone how to break the law or requests for such instructions.

In particular, items that break copyright law or DRM cannot be supported. Detailed discussion of how to remove DRM is not permitted. eBooks posted to this site must be legally posted using applicable law and permissions.

Laws certainly vary between countries and something may be perfectly lawful in one country while being unlawful in another. MobileRead moderators are not legal lawyers or policemen so it is up to the individual to determine if they can download an eBook or make use of forum or wiki content. In general items in this site will conform to the laws of the our founders home country, Switzerland, however it is recognized that forum members live all over the world.

For eBook posting purposes only Alex has chosen that this site will conform to the Swiss laws for copyright purposes as this is his nationality. The Swiss recognize that Public Domain books are based on the author's death + 70 years.

In some cases a particular piece of software being discussed may serve multiple uses which might include unlawful use. It is not MobileRead's practice to assume that such software will be used unlawfully if it has a lawful use. Again the individual user will need to know the law where they live.

This should not be construed to limit discussion on these topics, although MobileRead reserves the right to limit discussion that is outside the realm of good taste or uses foul or hateful language.

Excellent; I've looked forward to a dedicated thread for this. As you say, the quality runs the gamut and recommendations will be most useful.
