Anyone know how to extract the audio from Happy Reading FM? I could record them, but downloading the audio files is way easier.

comment What does “理所应当的美好” mean?
So does context change the meaning? Here's an example from Baidu: 有人说:世上最愚蠢的事情就是在金钱和爱情面前卖弄自尊无数次地纠结后,发现有些问题无从解决,原本认为的那么理所应当的美好的理解,到此却真的是种理想. It doesn't make as much sense to me here.

comment Techniques for learning and retaining characters
I agree. When you first start, there's really not much of a choice, you need to get a minimum comprehension level or you'll be looking up every word. I think it'll be different for everyone when they transition to reading material not written for learning purposes.
