This is the page for the PLA audiobook. Each chapter will be read by a different person, many of them somehow related to the PLA. Anyone can read a chapter, though. If you’d like to read one, then do it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will probably end up on this page. I will allow people to submit chapters that have already been read so that listeners can choose who they want to hear, but for now it’s probably best to pick a chapter that hasn’t been done yet, just so we can have a full audiobook.
Once all the chapters are complete, I’ll paste them all together to form a free audiobook for everyone to download. I might even get it listed on Amazon.com. Or maybe release a few chapters at a time on PLA Radio. For more information about the PLA Audiobook project, here’s a thread in our forums.
Here is a list of chapters that are still available to read. If you don’t own a PLA book, this go buy one. Or maybe try and read the chapter you want to do for free using Amazon’s “view it now” feature.
