Dearly Departed Authors Read Aloud

Short web links to famous voices sharing snippets or the complete text of their works – click here for a slide show created by Flavorwire‘s Emily Temple with embeded links.  From Jack Kerouac reading the last page of On the Road to the smooth jams of some jazz to J.R.R. Tolkien reading from The Hobbit, you’ll be blown away by hearing these literary icons interpret their masterworks. Thanks to Recorded Books’ Facebook post for the link!
