Knitting and reading at the same time is difficult for me. But, I don’t want to give up either. And so, a solution:

Librivox – Free audio books belonging to the public domain. There is a huge list of books here. This site also offers an audio book podcast that sends subscribers one book a week. The only drawback is that the narrative is not “professional” and so you have to like the voice of whoever is reading the book. There’s nothing worse than listening to some dude with a head cold reading an audio book. All in all a good deal for the price 🙂

Listen Alaska – Oodles and oodles of free books and music brought to you buy the Alaska library network. In order to check out a book from Listen Alaska you need to be a member of one of the member libraries. Unfortunately, Wasilla Public Library isn’t on the list. Palmer and UAA are though, so good luck. Also on the list is Kettleson Memorial in Sitka (Mom, can I borrow your card number??). Let me know if you’ve tried this, and how it works out.
