listen to a tale

Here's a treat for all of you, who like me, are sitting in your office chairs on this beautiful early October morning. Sit back in tht ergonomic desk chair with a hot cup of coffee, put on your headphones, and enjoy this free classic audiobook of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. And for those of you at home, watching the kids or planting your garlic, download it and put it on your ipod for your chores, or play it in the kitchen. Tis the season!

I love The Legend of Sleepy Hollow! I read it near Halloween every year as well!

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is fantastic, I read it every year to get myself in a Fall mood.

Can't wait until Antlerstock! I made marmalade for the first time ever with apples we picked. So much fun! Watching that old apple grinder was totally cool! Now I have to figure out how to download Sleepy Hollow onto my iPod. The kids will be home from school soon to show me.

Autumn is the best! The kids are all excited about costumes and the leaves create new colors every day and I can cook soup again. Love this time of year.

CraftLit.com, a podcast for crafters who like books, used this same wonderful recording by Chip. If you listen to it through CraftLit though (episodes 26 & 27) you also get the advantage of the host's background information on the story and author. It's like having your very own English teacher, who never gives homework!

Chip has done other recordings for Librivox too. His voice is gold.

Love Washington Irving! This is a fall tradition for meā€”even read an abridged version and watch the Disney cartoon in the classroom in October (part of the early history of our country you know). Thanks for sharing the audio!
