Free

Sci-Fi, self-improvement, Jane Austen & the animal kingdom. Three downloads for fiction fans, financial planning, and those who enjoy live drama or wish to add a touch of audio to their Common Core language arts instruction – plus one off-the-wall resource, the world’s largest natural sound archive. Today’s batch of great FREE listening!

The Human Division, Episode 1: The B-Team by John Scalzi, by William Dufris. Scalzi’s newest is a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man’s War universe. Download this first episode for free here: http://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B00AWSNTUS&source_code=FBIOR904BWS011413

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, narratted by Seth Anderson. For those of you who think big with your New Year’s resolutions! Download for free from Learn Out Loud: http://www.learnoutloud.com/Free-Audio-Video/Business/Business-Leaders/Think-and-Grow-Rich/42902

L.A. Theater Works has amazing free resources – check this previous “Audio Drama & the Common Core”  post. Currently, you can grab Pride & Prejudice for free as streaming audio via Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/latheatreworks

And if there are any narrators out there who  need to mimic an animal sound and are desperately searching for sound clips – as did Katy Kellgren when she had to laugh like a snorting camel – here’s your solution! The Macaulay Library archive at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has archived 150,000 recordings of 9,000 species going back to 1929, digitized and available at www.MacaulayLibrary.org.
