    Discovered App that converts PDF files to audio. Free audio books galore.

    This opens a lot of doors for free books in PDF form that can now be listened to.

    the app is Voice Aloud for Android.

    Just picked up The Abolition of Britain by Peter Hitchens.

    I just watched a yt video on it.

    The thing's five or six years old.

    The robotic sound makes this stuff unlistenable for me.

    Audible has talented, human readers but with some titles at thirty pounds a time...I'll pass.

    I give zero fucks how old it is. The latest version is not robotic at all. Im really surprised how well it works. I am a premium member of Audible. Still plenty of books not on there

    Well, if you can live with it then good for you.

    I think your statement is ridiculous, but each to his own.

    But it's useful for idiots that can barely read I suppose.
