Audible – The Art of War: The Stratagy of Sun Tzu

First off, I'll say this, I own a version of the book (I'll upload a picture of it when I get home late tonight) which I've read a couple of times, and I find it fascinating reading.

I've not been posting much about my reading and audible recently, primarily because I've been listening to Anthony Beevor's Second World War narrated by Sean Barrett, charting different aspects of the war from start to finish.

Good news is, if … Continue reading Audible – Bladerunner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep)

Audible – reading books through your ears.

In the past I've tried reading Dickens, and found it hard going, it's not a style that I can read very well, and because of this, I've never managed more than a couple of chapters before moving on to … Continue reading Audible – reading books through your ears.
