Free Audiobooks

Cassius and I have really been enjoying listening to these audio books from the University of Florida. They have stories for ages kindergarten to grade twelve. Cassius transfers the stories onto his little mp3 player and listens to them has he builds Lego and before he falls asleep. He really enjoyed the Invisible Man by H.G.Wells and is looking forward to Dracula and Frankenstien (a little light summer listening).

Robert Louis Stevenson, Longfellow, Bronte, Austin, Dickens, Twain,
Frances Hodges Burnett, Bram Stoker, Aesop–it’s quite an extensive
collection. Plus lectures on mathematics and logic for high school

Science, Technology and Society from MIT you’re wanting, this is the

  1. Hi

    First of all thanks for the link to the University of Florida. I’m always looking for new sources for free print and audio books – after all that’s what I’m blogging about. My son, Alexander loves reading more than listening but I cover both formats. All the best

    You can also download EBooks from the Burnaby Public Library.. I don’t have much experience with it, but I gather you can download them, and then they “expire” after a certain amount of time (the time you’d be returning your library book if it was a physical book)..

    Hmm.. well, maybe I’m wrong in that it’s not really a Burnaby Public Library thing, but actually a BC Library thing for many different towns and cities, including Vancouver.. the rest of the info still applies though. 😉
