Re: corrupted files

That's great, Jay, and it makes sense -- torrents are happy with slow/dropped connections :)

I didn't know our "Torrent" buttons worked -- I thought they were broken long ago. Haha!

nice mention in youtube video

It's all about his learning difficulties and his love of our audiobooks! (He starts talking about how great audiobooks are at about 4:30) https://youtu....

Little Women - 2017 BBC miniseries

Hey all, I'm just now starting the 2017 3-episode miniseries of Little Women from the BBC. Enjoying it very much so far. I've only read the book once, a million years ago (I know, I know), and I'm wondering how true to the book this particular miniseries is. I know there will be changes, but I'm hop...

Make sure your niece understands the concept of public domain. All our recordings can be used by anyone, for any purpose, forever. See: http:...
