Weekend “Reading” Material

Darwin Day is over, but gasmonso at Religious Freaks tells us that the audiobook version of Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species is now available for free downloading!

It’s been available in libraries and bookstores for over a century and more recently as a free eBook on the Intertubes. Of course all of these solutions had one major flaw though. You needed to be literate and willing to read the book in the first place.

Well those days are long gone with the advent of the audio book. Now there is no excuse for passing on a hot delicious serving of Darwin’s Origin Of Species. The kind folks at LibriVox have painstakingly recorded the entire book for your hearing pleasure.

Go here for Darwin-y downloading goodness. The whole book is 702MB.

Get the mp3 version, put it on your iPod, and you should be set for a 24 hour roadtrip.

(Which reminds me of the time I drove to New Jersey from Chicago while listening to Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything the entire way. The person riding shotgun was *so* not happy.)
