I want to be able to learn while I am doing the dishes, and as much as the shiurim available online are great, I would like to find online shiurim which are just recordings of someone reading sefarim, preferably without translating them. I have some specific ones in mind, but if there is a database with a selection of any significant size, that would be the best.

Does anyone know where I can find online (or, failing that, orderable) audio-book sefarim?

A point of clarification: I would prefer a database with multiple works, but even references to audio of single works would be appreciated.

    I don't know what this is, but it turned up in a Google search and looks relevant

    Basically, sefarim-on-tape. Perhaps try organizations that have resources for the blind.

  • If you want to hear Chumash, you can find plenty of recordings of leining around the internet -- you could even make your own!

  • I'm pretty sure there's an Israeli resource out there with all of Tanach read aloud.

This actually does exist on Kol Halashon! The man who recorded this, Rav Yehoshua Leibowitz, has also recorded quite a few other areas of text that may be of interest:

  • Shulchan Aruch
  • Tanach
  • Rambam
  • Select Mussar Seforim
  • Ein Yaakov/Some Yerushalmi
  • Prayers/other odds and ends
