Default Science & Non-Fiction Audiobook collection

Up until recently I had a bitch of a commute (6 - 7 hour round trip/2 times a week) to and from Glasgow and York. Over the last few years I've amassed quite a decent sized science & non-fiction audiobook collection that I have played to entertain myself when taking the journey. Just thought I'd slap the list up here in case any title(s) tickled anyones fancy.

The collection, as mentioned is mainly science & non-fiction, although there are some fictional titles (Dostoevsky, Glukhovsky, Tolstoy and Morgan to name a few) as well as quite a few American POV War Memoirs as my granddad was a New Yorker who got stationed in England for awhile before he went to fight over in Europe. Luckily he came across my Grandma and stayed here after the war was over - I only have a few loose memories of him so it's kind of a weird homage I pay to him and that part of my heritage (Any further titles on this topic will be gladly received!).

I can upload specific titles upon request, or if there's enough interest to warrant it I'll begin uploading the entire collection.

I don't really think the powers that be are gonna go for this unless it's like 'freeware' or whatever it's called.

They sort of frown on posting copyrighted material for downloading on here if I'm not mistaken.

Nice gesture though. I wouldn't mind having all of them to be honest.

I did try to check the rules before posting but saw the sub-forum was empty.
You are more than likely right, if any Admin/Mod sees this thread and it is against the rules I apologize - please feel free to delete!

A few free ones.
Your selections do not come up so those must be unfree.

Yup the only public domain/free books in the collection is the Captain James Cook one, which I got from librivox.
