Neil Gaiman Reading The Raven in Front of a Crackling Fireplace Is Like a Warm Blanket For Our Ears

Like a toasty mug of cocoa on a winter’s eve, let the smooth sound of Neil Gaiman reading the Edgar Allan Poe classic enrich your soul.

Gaiman recorded a full reading of the narrative poem recently—surrounded by dim candlelight, as all capital-R-romantic readings of poetry demand—to mark the currently ongoing fundraiser for Worldbuilders, a charity that helps deliver books and education opportunities to children all over the world, which hit a million dollars last week.

So not only is it just delightful to watch, it’s for a very good cause to boot.
