Listening Library

20k leagues

I'll admit it - until recently I've been an audiobook cynic. I just didn't get it, especially since I don't have a long commute to try to fill. Then Jodie Cohen from this week's sponsor Listening Library handed me a copy of The True Meaning of Smekday, as read by the wonderful Bahni Turpin. My family was captivated, and has listened to the whole thing at least twice. I get it now. It's more than reading aloud. The good ones are performed, and that makes all the difference.

But I digress.

Listening Library has lots of free stuff for you, check it out. And as a special offer for Unshelved readers, email them and they'll send you a poster of this lovely cover for 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, while supplies last.
