Free mp3 Downloads of the Greatest Books of All Time

While this blog is generally geared towards gaming and the wonderful world of IT, I did get my BA in English and have a love of literature. I stumbled on this 2007 article a while back from Time magazine (here) and do agree that it is absolutely impossible to come up with the ten greatest books ever written - but their list was rather impressive. That being said, I did find that the day and age of sitting down with a book (especially an encyclopedia sized Tolstoy) is a fading thing. Below is where you can find 6 of the 10 in mp3 format for download (for free) so you can listen to them in your car/mp3 player.
