  1. Hugh McGuire says:

    Happy birthday everyone! Thanks Esther for the hard work putting all this together…a wonderful job.

  2. I love LibriVox! We copy the books to CDs and then infilitrate our children’s subconsious minds with great literature as they sleep. Thanks to everyone who has contributed.

  3. Corwin says:

    Wow what a great concept using the cds as late night programming.

  4. James Mites says:

    Can you explain the copywrite time frame for me? I know that many books written in the 1960’s are in the public domain? Where would I look up the laws for it?
