Read aloud to you over Skype/phone
Choose any book that I own, or send me an ebook, and I will read it aloud to you. I like to think I'm good at reading, and have a decently soothing voice. If there are any illustrations in the book, I will show them to you.
I will read for an hour, or until you'd like me to stop before that time. If you're interested I will send you a list of books and stories I have access to so you can choose what you'd like me to read, or if you have something in mind feel free to send me an ebook or link.
I'm willing to read just about anything, but I'm not comfortable with erotic content at this time.
I'd love to share some stories with you.
