Coffee Break Collection 013 - Weather


This is the thirteenth collection of our "coffee break" series, involving public domain works that are between 3 and 15 minutes in length. These are great for study breaks, commutes, workouts, or any time you'd like to hear a whole story and only have a few minutes to devote to listening. The theme for this collection is "The Weather", where the weather conditions are significant. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry... this selection contains them all. (Lynne Thompson)
