I know, I’m a bit behind the times and all the hype about Adam Mansbach’s book Go the F**k to Sleep has been and gone, but did you know you can download a free audio version, read by Samuel L Jackson?
The truth of parenting (at least of young children) is that you can only really get anything done when the little dears are asleep or being looked after by a beneficent grandparent or spouse, so this had me chuckling, albeit in a mildly deranged way.
You do have to sign up for an account at Audible to get this – it wasn’t too nuisancy; if you’re already an Amazon customer already, you can just use the same log in.
Then it’s just a matter of downloading and dragging the file into iTunes. I say ‘just a matter’ but I have to admit, it did take me a while to locate the file in iTunes. I kept scrolling up and down the music library like a demented librarian. And then repeatedly going back to the ‘downloads’ folder to check if ‘Go’ really does start with ‘G’. (It does).
Just as I was about to give up hope, I noticed a tiny folder (microscopic, in fact), cunningly entitled ‘Books’.
Quite bizarrely, that’s where it was.
