Website – LibriVox.com

We all have an extensive list of books we want to read before we die…or at least books to read during the summer.  But if you’re too busy to sit down and read for an hour, or find it too hot to read at the beach, or simply don’t have time in your crazy hectic schedules, consider browsing around LibriVox.

LibriVox is an acoustical library of thousands of public domain books (anything published prior to 1923).  Listen to Anne of Green Gables, The Three Musketeers, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Collected Works of William Shakespeare, and hundreds more…all for FREE!  That’s right.  Doesn’t cost you one single penny.  Knock out some of those classics on your list as you do housework or cool off from the scorching hot weather we’ve been having thus far.

You can also download the audio files for free, allowing you to listen at your leisure.  The readings are done by several volunteers from all over the world, so you could have someone from New Jersey reading you chapter one of Little Women, and someone from Spain reading you chapter two.

Have a voice the world should hear?  You can also volunteer to do your own readings of your favorite books.  Get more information at LibriVox.org.

Sometimes you just need a little fun in your life! Check back every week for a new “Just Bee-cause” post, where I discuss everything from celebrity news to favorite videos and websites!
