Thanks Chela for letting us know about the site. I downloaded a biography
called Edison His Life and Inventions. Just so you know, all chapters in
this book were not read by the same person. I thought the reading quality
was quite good; however, one of the readers sounded as if she used a
telephone or a micro cassette recorder to record her chapter.
I'm not criticizing or complaining--just wanted to mention what I observed.


"To deny the need for and the teaching of Braille is to limit choice. It
inhibits one's freedom. You can never choose to use what you have not
--A Lynn I original quotation.

High Quality Audio Books at AudioOwl 

AudioOwl offers an extensive collection of high quality public domain audio
books. They are helpfully organized by genre, including children and
teen/young adult. You can browse by genre, or search the entire site by
author, title, or key words.  A selected book can be "previewed" before
deciding to download it. In other words, you can listen to the reader. 

AudioOwl offers two download options.  A book can be added to iTunes as a
podcast.  Or, the book can be downloaded in a zipped folder that contains an
MP3 file for each chapter, for use with any MP3 player.  It is worth noting
that some of these files are quite large and require considerable download

I mentioned the high quality of the audio books from AudioOwl, and it really
is excellent.  I previewed samples from a variety of genres, and in every
instance the quality of both the reading and the recording was top notch.
This should come as no surprise because AudioOwl is making use of recordings
from LibriVox, where each book is read by a volunteer.  

Additional features of the site include audio books in multiple languages,
links to other resources about the work, and a brief summary of each book.
Readers/listeners are encouraged to review and rate the audio books on
