Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare by Edith Nesbit

I just downloaded the MP3 of Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare by Edith Nesbit from LibriVox.  I adore the My Audio School website where I originally found the LibriVox download link; there are some beautiful illustrations on the site.

I've had A Midsummer Night's Dream scheduled to be read for two weeks and haven't managed to squeeze it in yet.  I finally decided an audio book to listen to in the car might be the way to go or we may never end up getting to it!

The track list:
00 - Preface and A Brief Life of Shakespeare
01 - A Midsummer Night's Dream
02 - The Tempest
03 - As You Like It
04 - Winter's Tale
05 - King Lear
06 - Twelfth Night
07 - Much Ado About Nothing
08 - Romeo and Juliet
09 – Pericles
10 – Hamlet
11 – Cymbeline
12 – Macbeth
13 - The Comedy of Errors
14 - The Merchant of Venice
15 - Timon of Athens
16 – Othello
17 - The Taming of the Shrew
18 - Measure for Measure
19 - Two Gentlemen of Verona
20 - All's Well That Ends Well

Unfortunately, I couldn't fit the last track (All's Well That Ends Well) onto my 4th disc, and didn't want to burn a CD for just the one track. We'll have to remember to listen to that one sometime when we're near the computer.
