Hey Everyone...

Welcome to the "Sean Reads Aloud' Audio Reading Series" benefiting the Sean and Christine Astin Literacy Scholarship Fund.

Growing up we all learn at least 2 important values:

Do what you Love & Try to Help others!!! 
So, I am.

Reading, especially out loud to others, is one of my favorite things to do on planet earth, or anywhere for that matter.

Your subscription will help us produce readings:
Books, Essays, Articles, speeches and More.

Christine and I will in turn will send monetary rewards to Literacy groups, especially those aimed at helping children develop their skills and foster a lifelong love of Reading!!!
(Such as the Los Angeles Valley College Patrons Association & Family Development Center)

Time, Space and Money? Pick 2.
This is the lesson of most of the projects I've worked on. The pace and amount of readings offered through the series will vary based on the amount of money we raise.

In an ideal world, we'll raise enough money for our Lawyers and many Publishers to come to terms so that we (I) can read fantastic works. For example I'd love love love to read The Lord of the Rings, the Disc World Series by Terry Pratchett or any number of Best Selling works. In the meantime, we are going to tap into the wonderful and not so mysterious world called, The Public Domain.

I can't wait to start reading the classics for anyone and everyone to enjoy, with their families, in the car, by the beach or on a bluff.  

Thanks so much for standing with us as we open up a world of literature with passion and joy for all.

Yours,
Sean Astin

A Wee Bit of Poetry: Ah, thank you for choosing this level. In this fast past world of hustle and bustle, we need a shot of elegance and music in our language!!! Once a month, we'll send out a bundle of 3 poems (MP3's) to our POET PATRONS. We'll let you savor it for a few weeks, before making it available to the rest of our Patrons. Only select this level if you are ready to be moved.
