I feel like a child again, tired but awaiting expectantly for the story to begin. The soothing voice takes me far away from the world's troubles, and leads me into peaceful sleep.

Listen every night now. Awesome find for drifting off to sleep - thank you so much for the time and effort you put into these readings. Loved the Wind in the Willows and was surprised at how much I enjoyed Cinderella. Will have a look and a think about something else I would like to hear.

This is the best sleep story site that I've found. His voice is just right, and I like the variety of types of stories that he has, as well as a variety of lengths.

Otis, is there any way you could do more of the Wind in the willows? I have listened to the 2 that you already did a thousand times and would love to hear the rest! Thanks, love the podcast.

His voice is extremely relaxing. Best bedtime story podcast I've found. LOVED the invisible man. I'd request Ray Bradbury if it's public domain?
