Librivox is a podcast of volunteers reading public domain books aloud. The editors pick a book and put out a call to volunteers in internetland to read it aloud chapter by chapter.

And, if you'll recall, when Slate.com started reading their magazines aloud in July, I wondered when this was coming. I was worried about copyright issues - but Rex said I would be OK as long as I stayed away from bestsellers. This site seems to be getting around it by reading only "public domain" items.
If I only had the time and the money to follow all of my ideas, I might produce enough from this blog to at least pay for my Typepad account! ;)
