Interesting to see that a selection of free audio books and other audio files are available as well as text files from sites such as Gutenberg. The World E-Book Fair lists available mp3 files for download. The titles, from a number of sources, currently available are of "classics" such as stories of Conan Doyle, sonnets of Shakespeare and stories from writers such as the Brothers Grimm, Edgar Allan Poe and Rudyard Kipling. There is also a list of chapters from science fiction novels.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit is on the Gutenberg list which I may download later to try.
As more titles become available this could become a useful resource - definitely well worth knowing about.
