Listening to books on YouTube

I recently discovered a YouTube channel that has French books being read what seems to be pretty clearly. (Though I'm not sure how good a judge I am on that.) I'm currently listening to Heidi after reading the book in French, and am able to follow along pretty well without having to replay the audio a lot or reference the book.

This appears to be a fairly new channel, but I just wanted to share it as a nice recourse for the rest of you. It seems to have a lot of books in their collection already - I saw quite a collection of Agatha Christie mysteries, some Camus, Verne, and Balzac, and a whole bunch of others.

Thanks!

Listening to one of them, anyway, the recording is from litteratureaudio.com. You can find hundreds more on that site. You're right, many of their recordings are very clearly read, and it's great to have so many to choose from.

Buried in that big list of books are the five volumes of Les Miserables, 66 hours in all!
