I am revamping one of my old fan fiction sites from years ago, but tbh, I don't know what to put on it, other than the old stories. The fan site scene is much smaller than it was even compared to when I was actively maintaining it. Perhaps a Star Wars book review section? I am not the right person to do stuff on the current Disney Star Wars stuff though since I'm not a huge fan of it, so book reviews might be a way

to go. I might use zonelets for it though because zipping links together is a pain in the butt...

I also don't want to maintain the forum side of it anymore since it is a lot of work for little return. Forum are great but only when people use them.

I found some old files for my site from ages ago.

It's quite a lot of different varities. I don't know how well they will grow, though because the soil dries out quite easily and it's not easy to dig.

I can't stand R N B music, but my partner has decided that he's finally got fed up of Radio 3 and put on this awful radio station with very tinny irritating music.... I can't work in this room with the noise anyway, but that....
Is it ok to ask a question? I'm looking for places that do unabridged audio books, mainly in the sci-fi and fantasy genre as I'm starting to find reading print books difficult due to changes in my eye sight. Thanks.

I don't listen to audio books, so I'm not a great source of information. Of course you've heard of Audible, but beyond that I'd be doing internet searches myself to find out. Maybe someone on Neocities will see this and have a suggestion for you?

I'm not sure what it is like in your country, but in mine some libraries have physical audiobooks, as well as subscriptions to services that offer digital ones. Ask your local librarian and see if there's anything that helps!

Free legal option > Internet Archive, Librivox, Youtube. Pirated option > search for 'unblockit', you'll find them both on general sites and under 'books'. Paid for option > idk, Audible/Spotify(?)

Thanks. I did find one in the UK called Listening Books which is made for folks who have difficulty reading. I'm still OK with reading, but low light and small print are problematic. I got a magnifiier but all that does is give me an headache and our local library doesn't have a large collection of audio books. Audible is great, but it can be expensive, espeaically if you aren't a member. I've been using it for about

a year now. Books on CD are expensive (think of Wagnar's Ring Cycle on CD and you get the picture.) Alot of books were abridged too in physical format so you miss a lot of story. (I guess it was to cut costs because a large tape/cd collection is expensive to produce.) I'll put links on my site to collections as I find them so it will help out others.

Apparently, after years of making me think that I have type 2 diabetes, the NHS don't know which type of diabetes I actually have...
