It appears that my last post quickly went from gold mine to land mine as many of the videos were quickly removed from youtube.com or set to only play on youtube and not as embedded videos. IMO (that’s “in my opinion”) even with the dead links and matchbox 20 section it is still pretty cool.

Oculture.com or Open Culture has compiled a kick ass list of free books on tape style audio files for your listening pleasure. Machiavelli ‘s The Prince, HG Wells’ War Of The Worlds, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley faithful to its original text. Aesop, Chaucer, Dostoyevsky. Not every reading is a grand performance, but many are... Check Patrick Horgan reading War of the Worlds. Put a chapter on your iPod each day or pack it full and head out on the open road. LINKAGE
