I also spoke of the various file
formats you can use to listen to these episodes--please let me know
in the sidebar if you are able to watch these versions.
mini-video podcasts you can watch here (see below)
a video podcast you can put in your iTunes or on your
iPod/iTouch/iPhone (right click for 189here,
and 191 here)--for
these special episodes these will ALSO go out on the RSS feed, with
the letter "v" after the episode number
or the regular old audio file that can be played on any
computer or mp3 player and which will come through the feed just
like always—right click here–> 189auido">, 190 auidio,

A Christmas Carol—in prose, being a ghost story of
Christmas by Charles Dickens Staves 1-2
All of those options let you listen anywhere via your "smart" device. The dedicated CraftLit app also allows you to tap a "star" icon next to episode titles so you can download what you want to listen to when in a WiFi environment. That way you don't have to use up your Data Plan by streaming episodes.
***Annotated Audiobooks for Busy Booklovers***
Since 2006 CraftLit has released serialized classic literature weekly—the way Dickens did it—but as an audiobook with audio annotations. Host Heather Ordover gives you some context and juicy tidbits before playing the next chapter of the current book. *** Listeners regularly call in to share their thoughts to be played in the next episode, which keeps the "book club" vibe going. *** The podcast has been in continuous production since 2006. Our current book, "Recollections of Joan of Arc" by Mark Twain begins with episode 581.
