Screen shot 2010-04-22 at 2.29.48 PM.pngOver at iPad Nation Daily, Stephen Windwalker has an article about a $0.99 app that will read thousands of free audiobooks on your iPad, iPhone or Touch. The app is called Audiobooks and has a bookmarking feature, sleep timer, advanced search and, for the iPad, a web browser.

The books are from the LibriVox project and there are over 3,200 of them. From what I gather from the article they are mainly classics.

Check out Stephen’s article for more info.


  1. titles are indeed mostly public domain with a smattering of Creative Commons titles mixed in. They are available in .ogg or .mp3 format, and are readable on the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, or any portable music playing device, along with laptops, desktops, netbooks, and many cell phones.

    Titles will vary with the quality of the spoken reader, and it sometimes is a bit disorienting to have different readers reading different chapters (each chapter of a novel is a separate audio file) but the quality of the librivox books I’ve listened to have been professional and very enjoyable.

    A great resource.
