I have a couple of fun things that have been percolating on the back burner, waiting for prime time, but this is probably the most exciting one. Did you know that Consider This: Charlotte Mason and the Classical Tradition was published in October of 2014? What that means is that as of October 2019, Consider This is five years old. This book is a little bit like a first-born child—one that I carried for some fifteen years before bringing it into the world, because unlike babies, books have to walk on their own two feet from day one. Your first baby makes you a mother (or father!), and your first book makes you an author. I’ve been nothing but grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response I’ve received from the book, the most gratifying of which has been, “Your book helped me so much.” That is why I wrote it.
And that is why my friend and colleague Donna-Jean A. Breckenridge has narrated it. She and her Technical Producer (aka, her husband Bill) have invested many hours in bringing the audio edition of Consider This to fruition. This is what she wanted to share with you:
It’s been one of the joys of my life to work with Karen and our beloved AmblesideOnline Advisory members. Getting to create the audiobook for Karen’s Consider This has been an adventure! It’s my first foray into audiobooks, my husband Bill has done the editing magic, and now I’m excited to be able to bring Karen’s work into a new format.”
There have been quite a few bumps along the way, but they have brought us to this moment when we can finally say, “Look at this!”
That’s an audio book! It’s immediately available from Amazon and iTunes. You can click on cover to view the book on Amazon, where a sample of the audio is available to hear. Can you tell I’m excited? I’ve been asked over and over again if this was available as an audio book, and now I’ll be able to answer yes! If you’re wondering about my other titles, Donna-Jean has plans for those, too.
I’ve got promo codes (free audiobooks!) to give away this week on Facebook and Instagram (@karenglassreads). I’ll also give away two codes from the blog here. Leave a comment through midnight Friday telling me why you’d want to listen to the audio version of this book (just to hear Donna-Jean read is a legitimate reason) and I’ll announce the winners on Saturday.
