Florida’s Government provides Free Audibook Downloads

Online Audio

Lit2GoAs much as I complain about amateurs rehashing readily available commercial public domain audiobooks like Dracula and Frankenstein when there are solid versions available for free I can’t fault em. Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 format designed for use in Florida’s public schools (the service is funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Education). Typical of the audiobooks available for download is the one below:

But remember these are for educational use only. A maximum of twenty-five (25) mp3 files may be used in any non-commercial, educational project without special permission. The use of more than twenty-five mp3s in a single project requires written permission from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology.
