Cool site. The last time I read "The Tell-Tale Heart" I was 13-years-old. I love this story. "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is one of my favorite poems. Thanks.

The catch is, they're all "as read by Rosie Perez."

It makes up for it in volume.

'Huck Finn's Heart of Darkness' is a crossover title waiting to be written.

Ah, pleasure. It's so wonderful to be read to. Some of the voices of the readers are better than others. Thank you Wolfdog.

I fell asleep listening to heart of darkness, just woke up and decided to say thanks for the wonderful link. I'm going to enjoy listening to these at night.

CONSUMER WARNING: the Heart of Darkness recording is done in a very heavy American accent - maybe stick to Huck Finn...
