Does eveyone already know about Librivox?

As it turns out, we own our voices. While file-sharing professionally produced audio books is illegal, reading a book aloud and sharing your voice is permissable.The self-proclaimed acoustical liberator of books for the public domain, librivox — a library of the voice — is a website I’ve used a number of times with great success.

  • Librivox is a non-commercial, non-profit and ad-free project
  • Librivox donates its recordings to the public domain
  • Librivox is powered by volunteers
  • Librivox maintains a loose and open structure
  • Librivox welcomes all volunteers from across the globe, in all languages

Check out http://librivox.org/ for free audio books, or to contribute your own … although I don’t see any of Latour’s books in there.

About Nicholas

Associate Professor of Sociology, Environmental Studies, and Science and Technology Studies at Penn State, Nicholas mainly writes about understanding the scientific study of states and, thus, it is namely about state theory. Given his training in sociology and STS, he takes a decidedly STS-oriented approach to state theory and issues of governance.
