Libri Vox looks like a great LEGAL place to get free audio books. They are all older stuff in public domain, read by volunteers.

audiobooksforfree.com is another, and for some great spiritual works, marialectrix.wordpress.com has the widest selection.

Hello there. You might also try http://www.thoughtaudio.com/ -- it has an interesting selection of works (including some from the Bible) but be aware that the reader has a rather unique style that some like, some don't like, so perhaps sample first to see if his approach appeals to you or not.

You can get Mere Christianity by CS Lewis here.

And going beyond just "books" be sure to check the Sticky thread on Electronic Resources.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but here it is anyway...

Sonitus Sanctus serves as a storehouse of Catholic MP3s. Lots of great links to lots of great speakers. As far as audiobooks, that is not their focus, but they have some included with all the other Catholic audio resources.

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

If you go to Christmasbook.com, you can download the first two chapters of The Shepherds' Prayer (a great book for Christmas). If you buy the hardcover book, you get the audiobook free.

I'm reading the hardcover version right now.

Heh heh...not "their" focus..."his". I'm working alone at present. And I have a tag for audiobooks on my site: Audiobook. Currently, I have some 50 different works.

Hope that helps.

God Bless,

Check to see if your library has a virtual library database, too.
