Spring has finally started to come here at Armida. While the snow is not completely gone from the ground, there are large patches of ground snow free, and these areas get larger every day.

Finally, a special deal has been offered us. Full Cast Audio is offering us a deal where you can get 40% off their regular prices. www.fullcastaudio.com
Full Cast Audio produces audio books of a number of fantasy and science fiction YA and children's books. Unlike most audio books they are not just someone reading the book, but instead they have a narrator and a different voice for each person in the book. They have audio books of more than a dozen books in Tamora Pierce's Tortall and Circle universes. As an added bonus, Ms. Pierce is the narrator for most of her books.
I have listened to a number of their audio books, not just Ms. Pierce's books (for instance they have produced some of Heinlein's juveniles as audio books and are working on more), and I have greatly enjoyed them all. Go, take a look at what Full Cast Audio has to offer. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. www.fullcastaudio.com
