Ah, it's the good old BBC version. Note that this is a dramatisation of the trilogy, in 8 1h episodes. It's very, very good (I've had it for years), but it is a dramatisation, NOT a reading of the original books.

Very well worth listening to!

Harry, thank you for explaining about the BBC version vs the books and your comment about it being "very, very good". I haven't read the books, so it won't be as noticeable to me when I listen to the BBC version.

Thanks for clarifying that it is a dramatization and not a direct reading of the trilogy Harry T. Forgot to mention that fact.

Thank you very much!

With so much great stuff to read & listen to, I'll have to quit my job. Something has to go, does it not?

On a side note. Looking to the right I see that القرآن الكريم The Holy Quran had over a quarter million downloads in just one week. Well done, I say.

I've posted it elsewhere but for your listening pleasure, try your library.

Mine has NO ebooks but does have a smallish audio collection.

So I found this;
The Free Philadelphia Library -- Available to city residents (free), anyone 65 or older (free), residents anywhere in PA with "Access Pennsylvania" library cards (free), and non-residents ($15) Online Registration

DOWNLOADS: audio books, e-books, music, movies, plus. Downloads Download Sampler

Currently I am listening to "Master and Commander" by Patrick O'Brian.

A $15 out of state fee is cheaper than dirt! As soon as I got my out of area card I started downloading audiobooks. The only problem is that it is not easy to find stuff in their system.
