On the seventh day before Christmas, PBW found for me:
Seven Freebies for the Readers
1. Storynory has a page of free Christmas audio stories for children to download.
2. Billy Graham.org gives away free inspirational books in print each month to their online visitors; this month they're offering Letters From Ruth’s Attic by Ruth Bell Graham
3. Celebrating Christmas is offering a free .pdf download of their 2007 Christmas issue.
4. AlpineWreaths.com has an entire page of free Christmas stories (my favorite is The Legend of the Christmas Spider.)
5. Mystery.net has a page of free Christmas mystery stories.
6. Over at StoryTelling, author Rosina Lippi is having a very cool LibraryThing giveaway, which includes a lifetime membership to LibraryThing, a cue-cat, a LibraryThing t-shirt and a couple books to get a lucky reader started with cataloging.
7. NaturalReader is a text-to-speech freeware that reads your text to you in natural voices, and converts any written text into audio files such as MP3 or WAV for your CD player or iPod (OS: Windows.)
We also put the magic hat to work, and the winners for the tenth day Evermore giveaway are:
Winners, please send your full name and ship-to address to LynnViehl@aol.com, and I'll get your books out to you. Thanks to everyone for joining in and leaving so many lovely greetings and wishes.
