Frugal Friday--Learn Outloud
LearnOutLoud.com is an online store for audio and video learning where you can browse over 15,000 educational audio books, MP3 downloads, podcasts, and videos. They offer some free downloads that can be played over your computer or uploaded to your MP3 player for listening on the go.
It's the last few days to download the free audio book of the month for September: Art Masterpieces. "This audio presents essays on 22 great works of Western painting by such masters as Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael, Michaelangelo, Titian, Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt and many more. Most of these writings by prominent art historians and literary figures have never been on audio before.
Each MP3 file in this collection covers a different painting and has a high quality image of the art work embedded into it (which can be viewed in iTunes). Also included in this collection is a supplemental PDF which features images of all 22 paintings. Be sure to download this unique audio book which is available for free exclusively through LearnOutLoud.com through the end of September."
This is a great download. The PDF gives high-quality graphics of the paintings, and the MP3 file provides small graphics for your MP3 player, though you need the bigger graphics to better study the paintings. This offer ends with the month, so be sure to take advantage of it before time runs out.
