Every year I buy the Massey Lecture book. I tell myself I will read it all the way through. I even bought the "lost" Massey lecture collection, which looks great. It's on my shelf. I haven't read it.
With all the reading that academia demands, it can be tough to get through books in your specific field, let alone books that just look like fun.
Well, the CBC is helping me out. Our national broadcaster has made every Massey lecture from 1961 available online. For free. Amazing. If I can somehow load these onto my phone and listen to them during my commute, I will get through the entire series in no time. Well, it will actually take quite a while -- but I'll enjoy it.
