Where to find Free Audio Books

One of my most popular posts was one I did on Where to Find Free Ebooks. But did you know that there are also sites that have free audio books available as well?

There is a wide variety of quality and type among free audiobooks. You can find human read books that range from a simple narration to others that are audio performances by groups of actors. There are also machine read books that also vary greatly in the  sound of the computer translation. Some sites offer both human and machine-read audio books.
