Reading While Driving?

Check out this essay in the New York Times Sunday Book Review. Back when I was doing a lot of traveling for my work I’d listen to educational audio books in the hopes of learning something new rather then wasting my time listening to music.

 

Let’s Go Reading in the Car – NYTimes.com

Author: JUDITH SHULEVITZ

“Audiobooks and road trips offer a chance to reacquaint children, and their parents, with the joy of listening to stories.www.nytimes.com/2012/05/…/lets-go-reading-in-the-car.html?…”

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/20/books/review/lets-go-reading-in-the-car.html%3Fpagewanted%3Dall

 

I really never have been much for reading books so audio books were perfect for me and in this case reading while driving was out anyway.

Free Christian Audio Books

I think we can all agree that the World Wide Web is a treasure trove of information. Each and every day I run across websites that offer this info completely free and today I'd like to share some of those online resources with you.

Each of the sites I'm going to refer you to today offer free Christian audio books.

The first one Faith Comes by Hearing offers a free audio version of the bible. This audio version of the bible can either be streamed to you a chapter at a time or you can download the entire New Testament to listen at your convenience.

Next is Christian Audio.com which gives away a different premium audio book each month for free.

Another great resource is Free Christian Audio Books.com which offers many free Christian audio books every day.

There's also a good directory of Christian audio and video podcasts at God Cast 1000

You'll also find many more Christian resources on my Squidoo lens "Christian Living" I hope you'll stop by and have a look around soon and don't forget to leave me a comment in the guest book telling me what you think about it.

Okay that's it for now but I will be finding more free audio content and as I do I'll be listing it here for your enjoyment as well.

 God bless

Free Audio Books

The other day while surfing for new sources of free audio books on the web I ran across a site called Open Culture which claims it has "The Best Free Cultural & Educational Media on the web."

While this is a bold claim it does seem to have merit. The site is packed with all kinds of resources including lots of free audio books, university course, language lessons, pod casts and much more. 

You'll find Open Culture's home page at  http://www.oculture.com or you use the links below to view the site by category. Either way I'm sure you'll find something of interest, I know I did and I'm sure I'll be visiting there again many times in the future.  

Enjoy

Pink Floyd Inside Out

Pink Floyd is one of my all time favorite bands, so when I saw this audio book written and narrated by Nick Mason I just had to have it.

Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time.

As the only constant member throughout the 40 years of the bands existence, Nick observed every phase of their career from his drum stool, including their time as the darlings of London's late-1960s underground, the deterioration and departure of Syd Barrett, the huge worldwide success of "The Dark Side Of The Moon", one of the bestselling albums ever, the rift with Roger Waters, and the subsequent decision by Nick and David Gilmour to put their reputations on the line and continue as Pink Floyd.

On this audio edition of Inside Out , Nick Mason reads his personal history of Pink Floyd – each chapter linked by his selection of the sound effects that have been such a part of their distinctive sound. In addition to his own memories and research, his account has drawn on the thoughts and reminiscences of key players in the Floyd's saga, which he has updated to include the band's reunion with Roger Waters at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park in July 2005.

_______
Reviews:

'Anything but a hymn of praise to the mighty Floyd. Mason's drummer's tale is unstintingly and amusingly disrespectful about the band' – The Sunday Times

'As charmingly English as Pimm's and heatstroke on a balmy summer's day' – Q magazine

'Rock's little drummer boy grows up into a sex cymbal. With a wit drier than an AA clinic, and a charm more disarming than a UN peace-keeping force, Nick Mason gives us a literary drum solo par excellence' – Kathy Lette

Business Audio Books that Motivate and Inspire

The average business person today spends much of his/her time commuting. Some 97 million Americans commute an hour or more to and from work alone in their cars each day…and that figure doesn’t include the people who commute by car pool, bus or train. That equates to nearly 2 months of your life each year spent in transit or sitting in traffic. Why not put this downtime to use in your favor.

Just imagine being able to use this time to improve your business or advance your career. This is where spoken audio recordings can play an important part in your professional life. With the use of today's technology the busy professional can actually benefit by using this time to listen to business books, business seminars, sales and marketing lectures and podcasts from successful business people.

Business audio books are an ideal mentoring tool and can motivate and inspire today's business professional. A great example of this is the audiobook version of Michael E. Gerber’s business classic “The E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work And What To Do About It” read by the author himself. This is of course just one example of the many audio resources available today and here are 5 others that should be in your audio library:

 

1. “How To Win Friends And Influence People” – by Dale Carnegie

One of the most important aspects of any business is the fact that PEOPLE are a crucial part of its success. This is true in almost every aspect of human activity, and especially in business. We need people to keep our businesses going and growing. Not just the people that bring us new sales and new customers, but also the people that make the sales possible, the people who deliver our products, handle complaints, run the administrative aspects of the business, and so on. To be able to succeed in business and other areas of life, we all need to know “how to win friends and influence people”. That’s why this incredible book by Dale Carnegie is a “must have” for any person in business. With the power of the information contained in this classic book, you can learn not just how to influence people so that they bring in more sales for your business, but most importantly how to win staff, suppliers, customers and prospects over as friends to help you make future sales possible. This book is available in audio book format, so you can enjoy listening to it in the comfort of your car while driving or commuting.

2. “E-Myth Mastery” – By Michael E. Gerber

Michael E. Gerber is the world’s leading small business guru and bestselling author of the phenomenally successful “The E-Myth Revisited”. In this audiobook version of his follow up book, “E-Myth Mastery”, Michael Gerber presents the next big step in entrepreneurial management and leadership. This audiobook presents a practical, real-world program that can be implemented in real-time in your business. The E-Myth credo — Don’t work IN your business, work ON it — is spelled out here in the seven essential disciplines followed by every leader of a world-class enterprise. Each discipline provides the leadership keys for unlocking success in the critical areas of business development: Leadership, Marketing, Finance, Money, Management, Client Fulfillment, Lead Conversion and Lead Generation. E-Myth Mastery is the ultimate business development program that will help you recover your passion and turn your company into a world-class operation — a turn-key machine for the money and satisfaction that only a successful entrepreneur can enjoy.

3. “Zig Ziglar’s Secrets Of Closing The Sale” – By Zig Ziglar

All of us are involved in selling every day. Whenever we present a product or a principle, inform a client, or instruct a child, we are engaging in the art of effective persuasion. Zig Ziglar is America’s master of the art of selling and in this audiobook, he explains proven, practical sales techniques all of us can use every day. He also provides vital strategies for specific closes, hundred of sales questions, and dozens of persuasion procedures to help everyone sell their ideas, or themselves. No matter what your age, gender, occupation, or lifestyle, these proven techniques from America’s selling sensation can work for you.


4. Winning” – by Jack Welch

Jack Welch knows how to win. During his forty-year career at General Electric, he led the company to year-after-year success around the globe, in multiple markets, against brutal competition.

5. “10 Steps to Prepare & Deliver a Powerful Presentation” – by David Julian Price

Ideal for:

* Presentations to colleagues at work;
* Technical presentations;
* Presentations to meetings at clubs, associations or local government;
* Sales presentations;
* Speeches at weddings, birthdays or special events.

Yes, more free audio books, LiteralSystems.org offers free audio books for your personal enjoyment and we do hope you enjoy them. Schools are also welcome to make these audio books available to their students provided there is no charge associated with access to them.

Just in time for Christmas Henning Hoffmann added music to this release of The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen. Special thanks to Henning. And in the way of Christmas stories they also have the previously released The Gift of the Magi by O Henry.

I think you'll find most of the 36 human narrated titles now available of better quality than most free sites offer due to the fact that they work mostly with paid narrators.
