LoudLit.org – Free MP3 Audiobooks

[LoudLit.org](http://www.loudlit.org) one of a handful of sites dedicated to making good literature available for free online.
LoudLit’s distinction is that besides being able to download the audio version, you can read the text online in-sync with the text.
The site says: *”Putting the text and audio together, readers can learn spelling, punctuation and paragraph structure by listening and reading masterpieces of the written word.”*
I would think this would be a great feature for those learning English as a second language.
