The Alchemist Lurking In The Audio Book

Aug 17, 2007
Are you ready for the next generation of the book? That is correct! It is available here and now. It is in your very computer waiting for you to look at your desktop monitor and a free sample of it from the very source that it comes from. All you need to do to get started, after doing due diligence, is to download it.

This mysterious but newly fascinating concept is the audio book. An audio book is a printed book that is transferred to splintered wire endings of your audible website you visit while book shopping, and ultimately to sound by a reader we will call, in this case, Jeremy Irons.

So, your eyes are not reading a book anymore because your ears now pick up a new function of reading the printed book by listening to Jeremy Irons. Let us take a typical case. Say you want to listen to a book with your ears rather than read it with your sleepy, tired eyes. No hands holding books or turning pages, no elbow leaning and mild back strain. Amazingly, no reading light needed either.

You go to an audio book website and start shopping around. You put in the keyword Alchemist at the source box at the top of the page and, lo and behold, a storybook type audio book shows as being listed on the web site.

The price will be less than a printed book because the same electrical impulses are stored on the computer file at far less cost. There is no shipping because the book is downloaded directly off of the web site.

You listen to a five minute free snippet of the book itself that is read to you by Jeremy Irons who will be your reader pal for the whole four hours and thirty minutes. The sample sounds interesting and contemplative to you and the price is right so you go to a basket and purchase the audio book called Alchemist at a great price.

You watch a video that shows you the simple instructions to download the Alchemist lurking in the audio book on the web site. You can do this! You download the audible book to your desktop.

You can open it and play it at this point. If you have good, strong speakers on your computer set up you can play the storybook and let Jeremy Irons be your partner in the listening to this book.

On the web site there was a testimonial about this fantasy book written by Paulo Coelho that says quote, this is a wise and inspiring fable about the pilgrimage that life should be, by M. Scott Peck,M.D. and author of The Road less Traveled. You think to yourself, perhaps this is a good book.

Paulo Coelho is an international best selling author whose books include The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, The Fifth Mountain and others. His publications have sold more than thirty million copies in one hundred and twenty countries. They have also been translated into forty seven languages. He lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

There is not a hurry to listen to it so you can listen to parts of the audio presentation in bites of fifteen or thirty minutes at a time. You can pick up where you left off at any time. This fine audio book, storybook can legally and ethically be burned onto a CD, transferred directly into iTunes and then to your ipod, if you choose.

You will find this story to be about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself King, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

No one knows what the treasure will be in the adventure of the storybook. The interesting part is finding and learning about the Alchemist lurking in the audio book itself.

This adventure journey turns into a meditation on the treasures found within. The story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts. Does this sound like your life quest at times?

Take some time each day to lay on the couch in the living room or set in the shade outside with your family. You can share this adventure together and share your own views of it as you listen to each segment of it.

It will take on individual meaning to each of you about your individual life journeys. You will be fascinated with the different impressions your family and friends have of it as it pertains to themselves.
