January 8 – Bag of cassette tapes

Jan 8

 

Today I’m giving away a bag of cassette tapes.  I thought about cheating and making this about 100 things, but really it’s only worth one entry.  I haven’t played a cassette tape since my tape player broke, oh about 6 years ago.  I am going to miss some of these.  I’ve downloaded most of my CDs to digital files, but I can’t do anything about the content on these tapes.  You’ll see there are a few books-on-tape in the mix.  I’m a big fan of audiobooks.  I listen to them in the car, on the drive to and from the cottage.  My favourites are memoirs read by the subject but I also love a good mystery or spy thriller.  The drive goes so quickly when you are being told a good story.

I recommend the memoirs of Bill Clinton, Andre Agassi, Anderson Cooper, Dorris Kearns Goodwin’s book on Lincoln (although it’s very long), and anything by David Sedaris or Bill Bryson.

I tried giving these and some old video tapes to the library around the corner but they don’t accept anything on tape.  I also tried giving them to my brother in law because he likes analogue music, but he had recently given away all of his tapes too.  I’m sending them off to the Goodwill.  Maybe someone has an old tape player that still works.  Goodbye Roche Sisters.

 

About todayigaveaway

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.
