Books

A great source for free book read to you is LibriVox.org. You can listen to the books online, or download them as simple MP3 files to put on your iPod like device. If you’re a Nutley resident don’t overlook ordering books free from BCCLS in which the Nutley Public Library participates. It’s here I get virtually all my books. See the Recommend Books section of my understanding Christianity page for my favorite books specifically related to the subject of Christianity._
