Coffee Break Collection 007 - Travel

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.7 stars; 21 reviews)

This is the seventh collection of our "coffee break" series, involving public domain works that are between 3 and 15 minutes in length. These are great for work/study breaks, commutes, workouts, or any time you'd like to hear a whole story and only have a few minutes to devote to listening. The theme for Collection 007 is "Travel and Transportation"! This may include adventures of land, sea, air, and space, and anything associated with the means of getting there.

I enjoyed this collection

(4 stars)

Five minute (or less) public domain audio recordings on the theme of travel. My favourite in the series so far, because it doesn’t have the piety of some of the others, which had spiritual or aspiration themes
