Today’s show is brought to you by Audible.com. While I watched hours and hours of television in my childhood, I also read tons of books – and as a professor I have found that you can easily tell the readers from the non-readers by their spelling and their level of vocabulary so I always tell students to find time to read. It’s also deeply peaceful to get lost in a story. If you love audio books you can support us here at 3rdPass Media by starting your free 30-day trial with Audible today. Choose from over 100, 000 books.

Including one of my favorites, The Outsiders by S. E. – or should I say Susan Elizabeth – Hinton – a book I read at 14 and adored watching my son read when he turned 14. Visit AudibleTrial.com/3rdpass or use the link in the show notes today.
