Audiobooks

Well, I have to confess that I’ve been reading at great length and listening to audiobooks for the past few days, hence my recent lack of new material. I’m not listening to anything new, however. If you aren’t familiar with Project Gutenberg or Librivox, I would encourage you to check them out. Lots of the good, older books written by scientists long ago are on there. I’m currently listening to “Squirrels and other Fur-Bearers.” It’s a collection of essays by the American naturalist John Burroughs. I’ve read a few of his essays before, but it’s so much easier to listen to them… Anyway. there’s gold in them there hills of learning. Check it out. Also, if you’d like to read Darwin’s works, and were, as yet, unfamiliar. They can be found here. Run along, read, the lifelong process of learning has yet to begin!

I also think it’s rather unusual that many people think upon finishing whatever level of education they have attained that they are “finished” with learning. What fun is it to stop learning when you’ve just gained the skills to learn?
