Re: Audioliterature and Audible

Availle, imo you've eloquently expressed a widely shared attitude at LV -- your message was gentle, even-handed, and straight-talking. It's a little bit of embodiment of the LV mantra: be kind, while clearly stating our stubborn generosity. I just want to chirp my agreement with all you've said and ...

Re: [GRP] Final Report of the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing - tg

Great project! I'd like to read 0 Prefatory Material, Executive Summary iii-iv From the Co-Chairs v Members of the Task Force 1-4 Executive Summary I wonder... Could the Members of the Task Force be read after the Executive Summary? That way the text could flow without interruption, and folks could ...

Re: Audioliterature and Audible

Amazon responded to my inquiry in January . They corrected a narrator credit error that I pointed out, but the larger question -- do they have a policy about selling audiobooks that are available free at librivox -- is skirted by mentioning an unrelated policy. Personally, I'm not interested in puni...

Re: [ART] Practice and Science of Drawing by H. Speed - availle

something happens between my brain and the paper... Ah, the fabulous thing about drawing is that it affects how you see.

Re: Audioliterature and Audible

Wow. Your post amazed me -- I'm so naive. As it happens, I was composing an email to audible customer service today (pasted below) and thought -- hey, I should check the LibriVox forum for any examples of this problem I'm reporting -- and so I folded your instance into my email: Hello, Audible Team,...
