Listen to the Mp3 files on your computer
View the text on a webpage and read along as you listen
- Print out the stories and poems to make your own book.
Browsing through the Lit2Go archives by author, I found some of our favorites such as Jane Austen, Thornton W. Burgess, and good old Abraham Lincoln. Browsing by title, I found such gems as The Merchant of Venice and "Hickory, Dickory, Dock" and even some that just make me curious as to whether my students would consider them gems or not, like Philosophy and Fun of Algebra.
You may also search the database by reading level. The results will show how long the audio is, and how many words are in the passage (or book, poem, etc.).
And, happily, if you're an iTunes junky like myself, you may enjoy knowing you can download many of the Lit2Go audios directly into your iTunes library.
Thank you,for this high quality, 100% free, educational find!
