Background

We are often asked how it's possible to find more of the works recorded by a favourite reader.

Search the LibriVox catalogue

You can search the LibriVox catalogue by reader, by just typing the readers name into the surge bar at LibriVox.org. You can also click on 'Advanced Search'. You'll find a field for the reader there.

  • You can enter either the forum name or the catalogue name of the reader.
  • Find just solo works, or collaborative works, by using the 'Solo/Group' field.
  • Find only works that are already completed by using the 'Status' field.

Please note that for some readers, the search results are displayed on more than one page:
