Can’t be bothered lifting that twenty kilo bestseller while basking in the sunshine? Why not listen to a good book instead? We’ve found a site which offers educational listening, too. This appeals to our lazier sides and makes us feel that the time lying in the sun is well spent, actually learning something. Check out LearnOutLoud.com and see if you like the idea too.
We like A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson â one of the best popular science books of recent years. Or, if you prefer classic literature, what about A Tale Of Two Cities by Dickens or London’s South Sea Tales, especially good if you’re holidaying in the south seas?
