A Room with a View – finished!

I’ve just finished cataloging my latest solo audio book recording:
A Room with a View, by E.M. Forster

As with all LibriVox audio books, this one is free for you to download, share, copy, mash-up, whatever. Enjoy!

In case you’re curious as to WHY our audio books are free and have no restrictions on their use, it’s because we record only public domain texts and release all our recordings back into the public domain. What is this “public domain” you say? From wikipedia:

Public domain comprises the body of knowledge and innovation (especially creative works such as writing, art, music, and inventions) in relation to which no person or other legal entity can establish or maintain proprietary interests within a particular legal jurisdiction. This body of information and creativity is considered to be part of a common cultural and intellectual heritage, which, in general, anyone may use or exploit, whether for commercial or non-commercial purposes. Only about 15 percent of all books are in the public domain, and 10 percent of all books that are still in print.

There. Now you know. An easy rule of thumb for books is: published before 1923 in the U.S. = Public Domain.

    I don’t know what “URI” is. Hope this gets to you.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to record this treasure. I enjoy your voice; normal and not affected.

    Thanks, Hugh and Beverly :)

    (Beverly — “URI” just means a web address. See how Hugh’s name links to his blog? So not filling one in is not a problem)

    Hi. I stumbled upon your recording for the secret garden, and will bookmark this one for when I’ve finished it. I must say that your recordings are better then some of the ones that i’ve listened to on librivox. I am looking forward to more whole book readings by you. Thanks for sharing.
