I have never lived an extravagant lifestyle, but before the economy crashed I was able to buy myself a new book or CD whenever I wanted to. No more. Yesterday, I decided to give PaperBack Swap a try; so far, I have shipped one book and am waiting for three books to arrive - books that were saved in my Amazon shopping cart that I will now receive for free.
Today my children turned me on to Spotify (click HERE). Here's the blurb from the website:
I have barely scratched the surface of all it has to offer, but I am very pleased so far. I created a playlist and added a number of great songs I have heard on the radio over the past several months; now I can listen to them whenever I want to without having to purchase them. Then I did a search for "mandolin" and found all kinds of great stuff, both classical and contemporary.
There is also a premium version which offers you better quality sound and no advertising and the option to listen offline or on your phone. That definitely has its appeal, but for now I am going to content myself with the free version.
Here is one of my favorite new downloads. I love those strings.
Do you ever listen to music on the internet? What are your favorite sources?
