Great, free archive of spoken-word readings

I just stumbled upon a great little iPhone app from the University of Warwick – an archive of spoken-word readings from great writers and poets.

My alma mater, the University of Warwick, has a long and well-established history of getting great authors to perform readings at its many arts venues. I heard about this great, free app that they have produced via their twitter account (@warwickuni) and I’m really impressed – it’s got some great readings from hundreds of authors along with background information. Take a look!
