Free french audiobooks

I was looking for free French audio content suitable for listening while driving (so it has to be offline), I came across this site:

http://www.litteratureaudio.com/

There you can find >4000 free french audio books. Audio quality is not stunning (sounds like recorded at home) but for sure it is more than good enough to get used to listening to french.

All thumbs up for all the people investing their free time to educate the masses!

Merci beaucoup! J'ai adoré le site. Je vais écouter dans ma voiture. C'est très bon pour améliorer les études. Je vais écouter Les Misérables, parce que j'ai vu le film et j'adore Victor Hugo. Merci beaucoup de nouveau. Voici votre lingot.

I listened to a few while surfing the web and I found quite a few to be very good quality, but maybe I have low standards ;o anyways, thank you so much for posting this :) I know it'll be put to good use by quite a few members.

Oh, you are right. They are not bad in quality at all. Just not as high fidelity than commercial audio books, but still very well recorded. I find the site marvelous. And also all the people spending endless hours reading and recording the books.

Oh, one more thing I tried out recently: By using vlc for playing, you can reduce the speed (15% I'm now). Helps a little for understanding or at least recognizing ;-) the words.
