I am trying very hard not to drool on the keyboard

because I discovered tonight that The Little History of the World by E.H. Gombrich which I find so wonderfully delightful and delightfully wonderful was released in June as an unabridged audio CD; while my ideal audio version would include narration by a grandfatherly Viennese gentleman, the prospect of Ralph Cosham seems promising.

This it strikes me would make a marvelous back-to-school present for your favorite child, especially since it's a bargain at under $15. And if you don't have the book already (though you really should), you could give it to the lucky child as a set.
