So I still haven’t figured torrents out, but Stephan and Chris have been working hard to launch LibriVox into the world of chopped-up and reassembled files. More info to follow, but we’ve had HUNDREDS of downloads of our torrented books. It’s really quite remarkable. Thank you Stephan and Chris.

You can check, for instance: legaltorrents.

You can also find us on other, more famous torrent sites (try searching for audiobooks).

    Yes – i like your stuff. I found your site through a torrent for ‘Call of the Wild’.
    So you can see that torrents work in all kinds of wonderous ways. Keep publishing for free. Maybe i will even volunteer, i said maybe…later folks.regards.donni

    Its a great feeling to use my PC, my line to allote these wonderful audiobooks to the people who want them.

    The Thing about BitTorrent is, that we are our own servers.
    People download the books from our PCs at home. From me a bit, from you a bit if you participate.

    My PC alone uploaded:
    154 Librivox Books. 22 gigabyte. In 6 days.
    I am having a standart 24/7 DSL connection.

    Everybody in Librivox with a time-and-transfer-unlimited DSL connection is asked to help us with the Torrents. The more people publish those books along with chris, vee, rfrancis, and me the faster everybody who is interested, can download them. Also we can make sure, that no book ever gets unavailable.

  7. […] Meanwhile, Librivox makes its public domain audiobooks available on bittorrent as well as from, and mine may even be floating around out there somewhere. (Since I did make them public domain, that’s perfectly okay.) So take a look, and go feed your need for audiobooks.   […]
