If you’re interested in literature, four of Shoshana Milgram’s lectures are on sale at the Ayn Rand Bookstore through September. I haven’t heard any of them, so I cannot recommend them in particular. However, I’ve always found Dr. Milgram’s lectures worthwhile.
Oh oh oh! I just realized that one of the lecture courses on sale is Hugo’s Notre-Dame of Paris. Since I just listened to The Hunchback of Notre Dame, I’m definitely going to buy that. I was completely and utterly captivated by the novel; it was actually the first Victor Hugo that I’ve read, despite a year a half of French literature in high school and college. (I highly recommend the superb reading by David Case available from Audible.com. It far surpassed any other reading I’ve heard.)
Update: *GRUMBLE* In the course of attempting to order some absurd number of lectures from the Ayn Rand Bookstore, I hit the “empty basket” button instead of the “update basket” button — not once but twice. Augh! (In my defense, they’re right next to each other… too close, I think.)
To add insult to injury, I wanted to think on my selections for a while and verify that I didn’t have one at home in some dark corner, so I didn’t place my order right away. (I was at school.) Now that I’ve returned home, my shopping basket is empty yet again. At least I have my selections listed on a saved page. I’m not starting over though. I’ve given up: I’m just going to call in my order. (Really, that’s quite unprecedented for me.)
