I have just learned of a wonderful website called LibriVox where volunteers are recording free MP3 audiobooks of texts in the public domain. Someone is currently recording Julian of Norwich (it’s a guy, alas; I hope a woman will record it at some point in the future) and two of Evelyn Underhill’s books are available in MP3 format as well: Mysticism and The Life of the Spirit and the Life of To-Day. I haven’t searched any further to see what other treasures are currently available (the Underhill texts will keep me busy for a while), but I suspect many gems can be found herein – and LibriVox is looking for volunteers to keep recording more public domain texts. What a wonderful way to disseminate mystical wisdom – and what a great, free alternative to buying books!
