An exceptional collection of classic books. These are the books that have withstood the test of time and must be read by all who wish to be liberally educated.
***** Very nice app.
Easy to use and I am reading/listening to books I have known about forever but just never found the time to read. Now I can enjoy them. I recommend this app to everyone. Now maybe I can get a few more answers right on Jeopardy.

Download Delete Redownload
It had been a while since I had chosen and downloaded a classic book from the app. I tried to open the app to no avail. Opened the Apps app, entered audiobooks, went to reviews where a few said to delete and redownload. I did that, now it works with new features and found now I have no library. Luckily I did not purchase any titles as I am an avid reader. I would be terribly upset if I had to repurchase my library. Still very inconvenient and unnecessary. The provider of the app should know this. Thanks
March 2017 Update Works w/ Reinstall
As the other reviewer commented, DELETE the app from your phone and then (re)download it from the app store. Unfortunately you lose your place in you book(s), but this is how you make the updated app work again.
This app is the absolute BEST. I have been using it for several years now during my commute. I find it amusing that the same liber vox readers keep turning up when I finish everything by one author and go to another - they've become familiar "friends".
I started w the classics I always wanted to read but never did. Then/now I just work my way from the top down the Mystery genre list, doing a search for everything by the author if I like the first book. LOTS of great dime store detective and sci fi books. Also amazing to see how much was known about other places/cultures 100-ish years ago despite the obvious communication/transportation problems. So wonderful on so many levels!
The app is simple and straight fwd, yet still has a "pretty" user interface and does not feel cheap. Chapters are about 23 min each (several book chapters may be combined). The first downloads over "roaming" in about a minute or less. Subsequent ones queque as you listen so that the story keeps going and going w NO interruption. (In "Settings" on for the app on your phone you can set it so it does not download while roaming, btw. If you are worried about dats usage/charges.)
Bottom line is that you need to get this app! lol!!
Great value but could use some improvements
I love this app. I use it all the time. It's a great resource for free audiobooks and a great way to experience the classics at no cost. Audiobooks are expensive and if you like to listen to them this is a great way to do it for free. That being said there are a couple of drawbacks. The books are all read by volunteers so their abilities vary. Some are not as clear as others or as dramatically gifted as others. Some have some annoying background noise as from an air conditioner or something that affects the sound quality. Most are easy to understand though. The one thing that irritated me most initially is that for some works (a few) the chapters are each read by different people & I found it to have a negative effect on the continuity of the book. Also, each chapter is prefaced by a blurb stating that this is a Librivox recording in the public domain and lists the title of the chapter, book & author twice. I find it to be excessive that this is in front of EVERY chapter and again it interrupts the continuity of the story. I don't know why they couldn't delete that part when they edit & assemble the recording into a single recording. These things would make the app a lot better in my opinion but I have gotten used to it and still listen to it on a daily basis. If they fixed these few issues I would give it 5 stars.
