The Realm Of Talking Books
Millions of people world wide are using their narrative skills to apply the fundamentals of reading for those who are unable to pick up a book and handle the task on their own accord. Now there is a way where you can apply those skills as almost 1,500 titles are available for you to sample and there are over 87 thousand producers to choose from as your finished product is available for purchase at locations including Amazon, Audible, I tunes and I books.

Many of us in the radio business usually venture in other projects to expand our vocal talents and abilities. Washington DC news anchor Maria Leaf is a prime example of actually taking some of her spare time from one of the nation's capital's news rooms to assist the visually impaired in this simple task that is unavailable to them. The Syracuse, New York native enjoys reading various portions of books in every genre as this is her way of "paying it forward" on a nation wide basis.
Maria will join Ron Carson to share some insight on her new found hobby when she checks in on this weekend's Saturday Morning Chat which follows The WSBS Trading Post. Tune in at 10:05 am to 860 AM OR 94.1 FM, listen LIVE on line by logging on here or you can download the FREE WSBS app at your local app store to your Smart Phone, tablet or mobile device. You can also check us out on Google Home and Amazon Alexa enabled devices. Complete instructions can be found by heading to the home page of our web site, wsbs.com.
