Haven't checked this out yet, but I suppose you just need enough bandwidth to download free audio books from these people.

LibriVox free audio books

LibriVox is a volunteer project with the goal of making pubilc domain works available as audio books.

LINK:
http://librivox.org

There's a plethora of goodies here for bibliophiles.

via Boing, Boing, who cited the recent addition of Darwin's "On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection" to the collection.

Not only is the available of classic works a beautiful thing, but access to audio books is a boon to those who benefit from having access to books through
alternative mediums . coming to mind:

people who self-identify as LD, ADHD, or visually impaired
people on extremely long road trips
podcast junkies

If you've been meaning to contribute your voice (literally) to an information cause, sign up to volunteer and read a chapter or two .
