To celebrate the solstice, we have something to give away! One of us has spent many long hours downloading many, many free audiobooks from Librivox. These audiobooks are all out of copyright and free to use, and we have TWO 15-gig USB sticks filled with hundreds of books to give away to TWO lucky winners.
This is a fun grab bag of audio books! We don’t have room to list all the titles, but included are:
The Belgian Twins
Book of Dragons
Dot and the Kangaroo
Little Lord Fauntleroy
The Little Princess
Just So Stories
Old Peter’s Russian Tales
Prince and the Pauper
The Magic Pudding
The Blue Fairy Book
Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
…and so much more!
(Disclaimer: StS does not uniformly endorse the archaic or outdated information, ideals, and philosophies often found in classic works such as these but does trust all parents to make informed decisions about the concepts to which they expose their children.)
Now, if you have wonderful Internet access and can stream Librivox with no problem, you may not need this particular item, but we know that many folks out there with less-than-stellar access would be happy to get all these books. Therefore, we ask that those who do not have a real use for this would wait until our next giveaway.
- This giveaway is open internationally.
- In order to enter for the drawing, leave a comment here telling us what you would like to see discussed on our blog. Do you want to hear about how we taught our children to read? Or what we do with a perfectionist child? Do you want to hear from veteran teachers of Latin or Greek, or are you looking for fun winter science projects?
- In your comment, make sure also to include your email address in the format “mizsocrates at roadq dot com” so that we can contact you if you win!
- On the solstice–Saturday, December 21st–I will pick two winning comments by using random.org to choose two random numbers. Rose-Marie will then mail out the prize.
So start commenting, and happy solstice!
