I often read to The Child Person at bedtime, and I recently decided to causally record these while I read them, to share with The Internet People.

I generally read a couple of chapters at bedtime, but I'm recording them one chapter at a time, to make sharing them a lot simpler. I'm not spending a lot of time doing these, but I hope you enjoy them, anyway.

The reading style I use here is a deliberate, narrative one, as opposed to an interpretive one. I might do some interpretive readings down the road, since I love it so much.
