LibriVox Catalog Pages: iPod Fodder

LibriVox - how cool is this? I consume audiobooks whenever I get bored with NPR on my commute, and via Project Gutenberg I found out about this effort, which provides free audio recordings of out-of-copyright books for general consumption. PG Wodehouse, Aesop, Viking stories, Wollenstonecraft, Poe... I'm delighted! I wonder if they might have some from my classics challenge...? Or maybe I shouldn't tempt myself by looking. OTOH, it is the literature I'm after - not necessarily the page turning. So by that measure listening to a book is as good as any method. Though I truly love a good read better than a good listen.
