In 2013 when I finished Conserving Mount Nittany, I knew I wanted to see it released audiobook too. Since Ben Novak founded the Mount Nittany Conservancy and his story features prominently in the book, I sat down with him for a few hours that summer and we recorded the raw reads of the book.
Those reads sat in Google Drive for about 18 months before The Nittany Valley Society could produce those reads into something presentable. Nittany Valley Press has done that, and Conserving Mount Nittany is now available on Amazon, iTunes, and SoundCloud in audiobook format.
If you’d like to own a permanent copy, Amazon is the best route. iTunes doesn’t convey a lifetime license at the moment, thanks to some licensing issue. We also made it available on SoundCloud for free, because we want the story of Mount Nittany to be accessible to the widest interested audience.
An Amazon purchase is still the best way to ensure you get a lifetime copy that’s all your own and that you can bookmark and listen to on any device. All proceeds benefit Centre Foundation’s Mount Nittany Conservancy and Shakely Family Conservation funds.
