LibriVox wants all books in the public domain to be available,
for free, in audio format, on the internet. We ask volunteers to
record chapters of books in the public domain in digital format;
all you need is a computer, some free recording software, and
your own voice! We are a totally volunteer, open source, free

Would you like to volunteer? Would you like to read a book in

Jacob Abbott - ´Alexander the Great´
Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Abbott
Alexander the Great was one of the most successful military commanders in history, and was undefeated in battle. By the time of his death, he had conquered most of the world known to
the ancient Greeks.
