My madcap adventures in Germany during my year as a Fulbright Scholar.

30 November 2006

New Favorite

I have a new favorite website: librivox.

They use volunteers to make audio recordings of books in the public domain and then make them available to download (for free! yay!).

Sure, it's supported by volunteers and can't match the quality of a book recorded by a professional actor, and while I might scoff at their filing of Bible chapters under "nonfiction" (and their goal of recording everything in the public domain is unrealistic, not to mention silly), it's still a great resource.

(That sentence had a few too many clauses, didn't it? I'll blame it on the fact that I speak and read German all day, every day. They tend to have a the-more-clauses-the-better attitude.)

When I knit I prefer listening to audio books to listening to music or watching television. I can't even believe I'm going to admit this (it's not as if I haven't given you ample reason to think I'm a complete nerd), but my spring break last year consisted of holing up in my apartment, knitting cupcakes and a miniature Canadian flag, and listening to Stephanie Barron's newest release. While my peers are off doing body shots in Mazatlan, I curl up at home with knitting and an audio book. Oh well, that's why you all love me. Plus, it's likely the only way I'll ever make it through something like A Tale of Two Cities or Swann's Way.

And, ooh, Barron has a new book. Something to do over Christmas! What? You thought I was going to hang out with you lot during my vacation? Scoff.

Yes, actually I was expecting you to hang out with the lot of us. Who else will be picking you up at the airport on Christmas eve? OK, you'll probably have some downtime during your time in Nebraska so it'll probably work out just fine.
