I don’t listen to audiobooks all that much (only on long car journeys) but I tend to borrow mine via the library’s online catalogue. They don’t have a huge selection, but they have some new books, so you could try that. I borrow from the ‘London Libraries Consortium’. One of the best audiobooks I borrowed is The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

I’ve been recommended Librivox too.

Hi, I hope you're doing okay. Lovely blog, I am usually keeping track of all the books you post. And I've to admit that's a financially fatal hobby I've going on. O:) So I just stumbled this 'Marcel Proust' collection and the source was your blog. Do you mind telling me the name of the publishing house or the ISBNs? They are just SO SO lovely. I can't provide you the link itself since tumblr doesn't allow it. Can I send you the jpeg somehow? Let me know please. :)

I’m sorry, I’m not sure which photo it is! If you tell me the numbers at the end of the post’s URL I can find it.

Or click on the photo/see the source (it’s not mine) and you should be able to go directly to the owner.

I picked one of my favourite World War I children’s books for this: Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne, about Alfie Summerfield, just five years old when World War I broke out. His young father, Georgie, promised he wouldn’t enlist voluntarily, only to break his promise the very next day, walking into the house in full uniform. Stay Where You Are and Then Leave is beautifully written and does not shy away from the harshness of wartime and the effect the war had on the entire country.
