In Memoriam

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 07:02:09 +0000

LibriVox is twelve! In those years, we have seen many readers come and go – and some of them, unfortunately, are gone forever. Here, we honor them with the gems they produced for our catalog. One of our oldest readers ever was Dorothy Lieder. She was already 92 when she read one story of The […]

Summer has come! And with it, time for vacation, icecream, and taking it easy with 10 gems from our catalog.

Mon, 01 May 2017 08:55:58 +0000

Nothing is more conducive to international understanding – and should be practiced much more often – than laughter. Have fun with 10 gems from our catalog. Why laugh, you might ask. Because “Folly is the part of intellect that makes life worthwhile.” Thus wrote Erasmus of Rotterdam in 1509 in the essay Das Lob der […]

Although it is slowly getting spring, April weather can be fickle, and kids may be disappointed when they have to stay indoors. Why not entertain them with 10 gems from our catalog. When you can’t play outside, what better than having a grandmother who tells fairy tales? Poor Jupp has one – and he makes […]



Love that dare not…

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 14:51:43 +0000

“I love you” – three easy words to say, no? Not if you’re judged by others for saying them. This month we honour authors from the LGBT community and their struggles with 10 gems from our catalogue. Life was easy in ancient Greece and Rome, when gay men could show their love openly. Gaius Petronius […]

Happy New Year everyone! A new year has just begun, and we are also looking at beginnings in 10 gems from our catalogue.

Shakespeare in Love

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 12:37:52 +0000

British literature has a long history, and many of the best known stories of all times originated on the British Isles. This time, however, we are after the lesser known authors for this year’s final 10 gems from our catalogue. For almost 200 years, Thomas Kyd had fallen into obscurity, even though the playwright from […]



The Man From La Mancha

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 08:10:14 +0000

Spanish is the second most spoken native tongue on the planet – and this month, we will celebrate our Spanish speaking librivoxers with 10 gems from our catalog written by Spanish authors. When discussing Spanish writers, you cannot pass over Miguel de Cervantes. Living in poverty throughout his childhood, and never able to live from […]

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 19:12:04 +0000

Have you run across a Librivox book that’s for sale or has an embedded advertisement? Look in our catalog for the originals, which are always free and never include ads. Many of our listeners use apps to access Librivox recordings. Librivox has nothing to do with app development. All apps are produced by third parties. […]



Temporary Server Failure

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 00:26:50 +0000

We are very sorry, but a temporary server failure has reset our catalog to its status of September 15th, 2016. So, there are no books on the LibriVox homepage that were catalogued after this date. We have now fixed the server and are very busy to recreate our catalog. However, this will take some time, […]

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 07:02:28 +0000

LibriVox has quite a large German speaking community who has been reading numerous works by German authors. This month, we honour both with 10 gems from our catalog. Alexander von Humboldt was a major figure in German science, and he is credited with founding the fields of biogeography. Homeschooled like his brother, he was always […]



Under the Southern Cross

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 07:04:29 +0000

Often sadly forgotten among the English speaking countries, this month we’ll put our focus on authors from New Zealand and Australia with 10 gems from our catalog. Unfortunately, there are not many authors of Aboriginal or Maori descent in our catalog, since their legends and history were traditionally transmitted orally. The Stone Axe of Burkamukk […]

Tiger and Dragon

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 07:54:39 +0000

It’s the time of the year when people start thinking about vacation, and many turn to the Far East in search of exotic adventures. Let’s have a look at 10 gems from our catalog by Asian authors. Tigers were probably present at the 금수회의록 (Assembly of Animals) that was called in to criticise and judge […]
