Public Domain and the Internet
Just found a link to LibriVox. From their front page: "LibriVox provides free audiobooks from the public domain". That's awesome. I'm a huge fan of audio books. In fact over last Christmas I was talking with my mom about the way I learn and the fact that I had a lot of "resource classes" when I was a kid. Something I didn't know, but I don't guess should have surprised me is that I am by default much more of an auditory learner. With a lot of help I basically overcame this, but I still don't read as fast as someone who processes the written word with natural ease. When I read I basically have to "hear" the words in my head so they go through the audio part of my brain. With audio books, I don't have to expend the extra effort. The catalog at LibriVox isn't that deep yet, but the first notable ones I saw include: "Aesop's Fables", "Pride and Prejudice", and the Gettysburg Address.
