This week I'd like to share an excellent resource I've begun to utilize.
And that, my friends, is
(as if you didn't already know from the post title)
"So what is it?" You ask. "A live-feed of a chipmunk farm? A clown car storage facility? A whittling enthusiasts group?" Nay, nay. All great guesses though.
LibriVox is a database of public domain audiobooks, recorded by volunteers.
I believe it's been around for some time, but I've just begun to take part in it and have enjoyed the site immensely.
I first listened to their latest Short Science Fiction collection (61)
Here were a few of my favorites from the collection:
-The Eyes Have It
-Beyond Lies the Wub
-The Spy in the Elevator
-Once a Greech
-The Blue Tower
Now, I'm listening to the classic horror story, Frankenstein. Writing styles sure were different back then, but I'm enjoying it and, as a writer, learning a lot in the process.
I'll admit, the recordings are are varying degrees of quality, but always listenable. And, hey, it's free after all.
So why not head on over there and take a look (or listen rather) in a book?
