Free Entertainment

In a world where everything seems to be going up in price, it’s nice to take advantage of “free” things once in a while. Or as often as possible. 🙂

Librivox.org is a website I discovered a few years ago, thanks to a NYTimes.com article. Librivox.org is a website full of downloadable audiobooks. Only public domain books are recorded, which are works that were published 95 or more years ago. Before you decide you don’t care because you don’t like old books, let me tell you that there are a lot of classics, as well as poems available. The Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables, The Wizard of Oz, Aesop’s Fables, Robinson Crusoe, The War of the Worlds are just a few of the 1500+ recordings available. The audiobooks are complete versions and can be downloaded to listen to on your computer or on your mp3 player. Librivox.org is maintained completely by volunteers and they are always looking for more help. Their goal is to make every public domain book a free audiobook.

Hulu.com is a new website that allows you to download TV shows or movies to watch on your computer. Although most TV networks have free show downloads on their sites, Hulu brings everything together on one website, making life just a little simpler. I believe the entire collection of Arrested Development is available at Hulu, as well as some of The Simpsons episodes, ALF, The Office, House, to name a few.

Your local library is another great resource for books, magazines, and movies. Our library has a nice selection of children’s dvds, as well as family movies, which are available to borrow for one week. So the next time you feel like renting a movie, check your local library, they just may have it.
