Aesop's Fables, Volume 10 (Fables 226-250)

Last Updated: July 22 - FULL

Here's the TENTH volume in this series! These Fables are very popular, and folks love to sign up for them. What's more, they're all SHORT - even a new reader can go from signup to sending the completed file in less than an hour. Experienced readers can literally do these in less than ten minutes. But real life often intrudes upon the best intentions, and sometimes these Fables go unread for extended periods.

In order to make this easier, each Fable now has its own hotlink so you can just click on the Fable name and see the text of the Fable itself without having to download all 284 of them from Gutenberg. That way you can see what you're signing up for right off the bat - and even have it there in front of you to read then and there. They're tiny text files so they should pop up essentially instantly, even over a modem line. You may of course also download the complete text from Gutenberg.

I thought that the idea of doing Aesop's Fables was charming, but was daunted by the fact that there are 284 of the things. Thanks to Annie for the elegant solution of breaking them up into Volumes of 25 Fables each. That'll allow us to read each Fable as an individual chapter. It'll make for short readings, which should prove a comfortable way for new folks to get their feet wet in the strange new format of reading aloud into your computer. A nice side benefit is that even folks with modem lines should be able to upload these without too much trouble. Most are less than 2 minutes long. Feel free to take a bunch of them!

They sound great, Efkan - thanks for sending them! One of the things I love about these Fables is the wide variety of accents with which they're read. These really are stories of such fundamental truth that they exist in almost every culture and the many different voices which read these things reflect that

Aaron, I got both of yours and they sound great as usual. But to be honest, I think they sounded better without the electronic processing. That's just my opinion though; you should submit them however you think they sound best. It's good to experiment for without trying new things we'll never know what they're like.
