reading aloud

The fabulous Mary Robinette Kowal has been posting an ongoing series on reading aloud.

As someone who spent a good portion of their formative years listening to books on tape, and audiobooks for the blind (and still listen to audio books), and spent a lot of time reading aloud and discussing what made a good reading (and not that I 'm an expert), and had a several year theater stint, I will say this: Trust the woman; she knows what she is doing.

Some links:

Lesson 1.

Lesson 2.

Lesson 3.

Useful notes on voices.

Lesson 4.

Lesson 5.

Lesson 6.

The truth of the matter is, Mary has a really cool blog. I suggest you check it out anyway, just as a matter of course.


If one follows Mary's bibliography down the page, one will come to her audio bibliography. Click on "Listen to it" under "Rampion". It's a great short story, and a great reading.
