A special “Holiday Episode” for you!  I ran across some audio from a recording I made for Librivox.org an online audiobook project made possible by a large wealth of volunteers who record readings of books and stories that are in the public domain.  I recorded an old favorite of mine, The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams, but not until I was about to upload it did I realize someone else had already recorded it for the anthology I was looking to add to.  No big deal, several years later I ran across it on my computer and decided it was too good a story not to share.  So here you go.

I hope you all are finding a little bit of peace this holiday season, and that there are multiple opportunities for you to show someone else what it means to be “real”, like the title character in this story learned.

If you want to learn more about Librivox or if you want to volunteer, head on over to their website!  It’s pretty easy, and a lot of fun.

Thanks for listening everyone, and let’s go make some stories.
