Downloads!: New Titles for Download
Siddhartha and The Tao for Free + Plato Out Loud
New Titles for Download
The download revolution is well under way. Apple has now sold more than 40 million iPods and it seems that you can't look anywhere these days without spotting a pair of those ubiquitous white headphones. One of the common questions that we get here at LearnOutLoud is when we will start selling audio downloads. Our answer? Now.
Next month we'll be launching our new downloads section but in the meantime I wanted to call your attention to a number of titles that are available on our site for download. This is a sampling of the content that we'll be featuring in our dowloads section and making available for immediate download to your MP3 player. We think you'll love listening to these titles, many of which you won't be able to find anywhere else.
Dan Millman - Dan is a world-famous author whose title Way of the Peaceful Warrior has sold millions of titles and been translated into dozens of languages. We're proud to have a number of Dan's titles available for download including The Twelve Gateways to Freedom and The Laws of Spirit.
Sounds for Sights - Live in New York or planning a trip to the Big Apple anytime soon? You'll really enjoy these audio walking tours. Check out titles such as Rockefeller Center and the Diamond District and South Street Seapot. More of these are on the way.
Infinite Possibilities - Mike Dooley's course has inspired thousands and we have it available for the first time as a download. If you're looking to live the life of your dreams and reach your highest potential you'll definitely want to give this one a listen.
Agora Publications - We're proud to welcome Agora Publications to LearnOutLoud.com. Their titles bring ancient texts such as Plato's Republic to life with full cast presentations.
We'll be adding many more titles to the mix soon so stay tuned for the launch of our new downloads section. If there are any titles you'd love to see us add, just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to include them.
Siddhartha and the Tao Te Ching
As many of you already know Siddharta is our Free Audiobook of the Month for February which means that if you haven't downloaded it yet you only have two more weeks to do so. What's new is that we're happy to announce that we just posted March's Free Audiobook of the Month to the site (a bit early!). The Free Audiobook of the Month for March is the Tao Te Ching. "The Tao" as it is commonly referred to is an ancient Chinese scripture which was written around 600 B.C. by Lao Tzu. Tzu expresses the main tenants of what would later be formalized in Taoism and Chinese Buddhism and touches on human interaction and man's relation to the divine. Second only to the Bible in terms of number of translations, the Tao is the most adapted text in the Chinese Language.
Our free, professionaly narrated (nice work Phil!) version of the Tao is now available for download at the following URL:
And please feel free to pass this newsletter along to anyone else you think might be interested.
And while we're on the subject of free audiobooks we better mention that we came across another site (ChristianAudio.com) offering a free monthly audiobook download. Check out this blog post for more info!
Plato Out Loud
You've all heard of Plato but have you ever heard Plato? David has assembled a comprehensive list of all of the titles on our site written by Plato or related to his life. A sampling of these titles includes the following:
Apology - A free version of The Apology offered by Voices in the Dark.
The Birth of Western Philosophy - A Barnes & Noble Portable Professor course on the philosophy of Plato and Socrates.
Plato, Socrates and the Dialogues - An excellent Teaching Company course focusing on Socrates' 35 dialogues.
