Do you listen to audiobooks? I do. And for years I had a subscription to Audible which gave me one book a month, and a discount on any additional books. But last month I discovered the newly improved Scribd plan, which gives me UNLIMITED audiobooks AND e-books for only $8.99 a month.
Best news yet? Use my Scribd referral link for a two-month free trial.
I’ve found the selection of audiobooks to be better than their e-books, but having access to both for one low price is quite a deal. Both the audio and the e-books require the Scribd app, which can run on a phone or a Kindle Fire (not the other Kindles) or any iOS or Android tablet. Let me know what you think!
By the way, I’m just finishing up the audio version of Ann Patchett’s newest novel, “The Dutch House” … I’m loving it!
See ya on the Net,

Winnie-the-Pooh Printable(** for Premium Members only)
A children’s book character that has endured more ninety years must be something special: and Winnie-the-Pooh (also known as Pooh Bear) certainly is special. A.A. Milne actually only published two books based on Winnie and his beloved friends, but they have since been featured in dozens of movies, videos, easy-reader books, and even have their own attractions at Disneyland and Disney World. Here’s where you can find the hundred-acre-woods gang online.
75 Years of Pooh
Pooh’s publishers created this thoughtful and delightful site a few years ago in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication of Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926. There are interactive games, Pooh recipes, and audio samples of Charles Kuralt reading from two Pooh books. But the best clicks are the Pooh Party package (seventeen printable pages including invitations and party games) and the chapter-by-chapter Winnie-the-Pooh Classroom Activities.
Fun Trivia: Winnie-the-Pooh Trivia and Quizzes
FunTrivia.com is a collection of reader created quizzes organized by topic. This page contains seven Pooh quizzes, which range from five to fifteen questions each. Unregistered visitors can play all the quizzes, but free registration is required to save your scores or to create a quiz. “According to the song Pooh sings while suspended under a blue balloon, what does ‘every little cloud’ do?” Play Winnie-the-Pooh Musical Genius to find out.
At first glance, Justin Valentin’s wordy fan site may look like it’s only for “older” Pooh afficionados, but younger fans need only click on Fun to find what they’re looking for. Treats to be discovered include a fabulous Shockwave Honey Tree game, Pooh e-cards to send to friends and family, and a comprehensive twenty-five question quiz. Other noteworthy sections are History of Pooh, book excerpts (Stories), and a character guide (100 Acre Woods.)
