Librivox. Volunteers read out-of-copyright books, both fiction and non-fiction; short stories and full novels.

Obviously you've got yer Herodotus, an' your Conan-Doyle an' yer books like the Mabinogion and the Sunny Zoo bloke's Art of War. And yer Conan the Barbarian and little gems like Frederick A Talbot's Aeroplanes and Dirigibles of War, written 1915ish.

If you like your Charles William Chadwick Oman, fer instance there are 5 books: The Byzantine Empire, England and the Hundred Years' War, The Reign of George VI, Seven Statesmen of the Later Republic and Warwick the Kingmaker.

If Sci Fi is more to your taste, there are 14 volumes by EE (Doc) Smith including Lord Tedric, First Lensman and The Galaxy Primes.

To be fair, some of the readers are a bit ... y'know, but generally they're quite listenable. You can listen to books as chapters or download them to take away with you.

I find Librivox to be great if you're you know, maybe sitting doing something that means your concentrating, but can listen. Maybe working on something quite small for hours on end. Maybe in a new workroom or something . Just suggestin'. It's free and you don't even need to register. Great way to while away a long time. Spent concentrating. Maybe looking at a lot of green things. Very good for that.
