To make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet.

Some statistics, as of today:

  • Total number of projects: 3113
  • Number of completed projects: 2556
  • Number of completed non-English projects: 364
  • Total number of languages: 29
  • Number of languages with a completed work: 26
  • Number of completed solo projects: 1214
  • Number of readers: 3094
  • …who have completed something: 2867

Total recorded time in all rss-ified works: 49596721 seconds, or 574 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes, and 1 seconds. Total of 50774 sections.

If you have a soft spot in your heart for LibriVox, perhaps you might consider leaving a little message on the blog, or the forum.

Or even better, perhaps you might help us record a few chapters of public domain texts? …
