Today, LibriVox celebrates its 17th anniversary, and we do it in style with 17,000 completed audiobooks.
The lucky winner dropped about 10 days ago, and it’s Eva – Lilith, a book of poetry exploring love by Austrian writer Bruno Ertler. It is read in German by lorda.
Of course, all our books are winners, not just this one, and all our volunteers are too! Each and every one of them made life a bit easier for visually impaired people, people with tedious jobs, students with a busy schedule, or simply anyone who loves (audio-) books.
Thank you to all our 12,000+ volunteers who contributed recordings in 100 languages (45 if you count our 2,166 stand-alone projects that are not in English) in the past 17 years. Thank you so much for making LibriVox what it is today – and what it will become.
Because: We’re not done yet! After all, our goal is to
make all books in the public domain available, narrated by real people and distributed for free, in audio format on the internet.
That will keep us busy for a while! We always welcome new voices, proof listeners, book suggestions… so if you’d like to help out or just keep listening – enjoy!
