A year of audiobooks!!

At LibriVox we keep track of the total number of hours of audio that we’ve cataloged. For the last few weeks we’ve been watching as that total climbed up towards 365 days and today, just a few minutes ago, we crossed over the 365 day mark — we now have over a full year of free, volunteer-read, public domain audiobooks for the world to enjoy. Here’s a screenshot of our statistics tracker:

So, start listening now, twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week, and you’ll still be listening on October 10 2009! And by then we’ll have lots more done so you’ll probably never catch up :)

Thank you, LibriVox volunteers! You’re the best!

edit: just after I posted this, another book was completed so we now have 367 days of audio :)

    I’ll third J.E.’s thought! I’ve just finished a few Jane Austin books, and you are one of the best performers there… Thank you very much for making my drive to work that much nicer!

    Thank you so much! Your reading is the best! I’m a single mom and I really enjoy listening to your voice while the baby is asleep. You made long hours of pushing the pram to and fro really exciting. And you help me with my English. Thank you!
