    Yes, I have a bunch of them...The CDs work best, I think.
    They are wonderful. Just finished "Bizantium" It is the Christian history of Asia Minor (think Turkey) , the Middle East, and eastern Europe for 1200 years after Christ was alive.
    Curiously my favorite, so far, is "Chaos" which is about things that are not geometrical. Although it is a DVD it is good listening, from the next room.
    The good thing is that if you are interested in a topic, they will eventually get it for you!
    Just ask...I wanted American History from discovery to 1776, and they got it!
    The history of Languages is one,
    The history of English is another,
    I have the Metropolitan Museum in NY and the Louvre in Paris, both lots of pictures from their collections.
    Space explorations, medical stuff, about music,
    American and other pieces of world history, arts and philosophy are just some of their lecture series.
    Some of them are 24 lectures, others more, others less.
    Thanks so much for your answer. I will go ahead and order some. ♥

    Yes I do. Christian music. It is also a great way to pray while I sew.

    If I'm planning I listen to music. If I'm actually crafting I watch DVD's. I've had a habit of watching Gundam Wing ever since I made my denim quilt in 2007. When I was making that quilt I watched the first half of GW (as I didn't have the second half) while I was making that quilt over and over so kind of became a habit to watch while I am quilting.

    I listen to 5 or 6 books a week on my Ipod! However, I have to turn it off while designing...I need silence if I actually have to THINK!!

    I listen to a mixture of oldies, Il Divo, Michael Buble from my iPod. My kids got me a Bose docking station for my birthday and the sound is wonderful. One of my daughters finds it amusing that I listen to Disney music while I pay bills.

    I listen to several different things at different times, depending on my mood. I use Pandora all of the time with my computer and speakers and love the variety. I also can tune the TV into any of the digital themed stations for music, or plug myself into my Zune for music or a good book. When I am FMQ, my favorite is to listen to a book. It helps me relax.
