Okay, so I’m trying a new thing. I’ve talked before about how much these stories mean to me. I couldn’t read well as a kid, then I discovered audiobooks, and all of these classics which I’ve wanted to read for years but were too difficult were now available to me. I want to share the joy I find in these stories with everyone who’ll hear. This is why I do what I do.

Here’s the thing: I’m sure there are a lot of people listening now with a similar story to tell. I want you to tell them. Here. Here’s the plan: 

Send me an email to Briefly tell me why classic literature means so much to you. Doesn’t need to be much, maybe a quick story, an experience you had while reading something. A decision you made because of a book you read, reaffirmation of a tough decision you made, how they make you feel, whatever it is. There’s a reason you’re listening to this podcast. Tell me what it is, and we’ll see if it will work!  

We’ll set up a time, and do a quick zoom meeting where you can tell me about your love for classic literature. Doesn’t need to be long. I’ll record our meeting, and share it with all the classic tales fans on the podcast and YouTube. 

Then, we’ll start sprinkling our award-winning audiobook content with your stories. Hopefully we can deepen the conversation, and all develop a greater appreciation for these amazing stories! 

So send me an email – Tell me your story, and we’ll see if we can get you on the show!
