Excellent find, Gerard! You can also download audio books from the public domain in any number of formats from http://librivox.org

This is even better. The audio comes from librivox!

Given the literacy levels of those freshly punted out of the Harrowing Halls of Academe, these audio books might just be 'Classic Comics' versions.

Nope, they are not, Pec! Unabridged, read by volunteers. Some are better read than others. The French books, Pec are best read by Ezwa. Ezwa has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. She's originally from Africa, but her deep voice makes for some glorious listening. You should listen to her read Cantique de Cantiques. (Song of Songs) Other books she's read are Beauty and the Beast and Lettres de mon moulin.

Hey Pec: Get the hedder from Drudge: France Plans 75% Tax Increase on the Rich

I, being unemployed and laden with useless sticky bun making skills, welcome our new, bidet-washed rich French refugees to America, where I am available for the translation of all your vitalest docs! At reasonable rates!
