Podiobooks link still works, but it redirects directly to explaining how the name has changed. The source link should be updated so it will go to the correct section directly. They have some free books, but their selection filter doesn't seem to allow selecting only free.

Thanks for letting us know. The link has now been updated. MC - Site Manager.
April 15, 2013, 5 new sites added. All links checked and working. I use LinkChecker to check page links and no longer visit each site individually to reconfirm. So, if you find a site that is not as it should be, then please post here in the comments. If you know of a site to be added to this listing, please post here in the comments. If you are the owner of a site that you would like added to this listing, it is better to contact me through the site (click on mr6n8). Also, no site that has an orange or red rating from WOT (Web of Trust) may be added to this listing, per site rules. So please check the WOT rating before posting. Thanks Steve
