Oooo, that’s what The Sound of Music was based on, right? It must be great!
Yep, though Sound of Music took a LOT of liberties with it. It's a great story.

Re: What's a Book You Wish Was in the Public Domain?

"The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria von Trapp. I've been reading it on Archive.org, but since it isn't pd, it can't be recorded :(. It's a good (true) story though.

Re: What is your accent?

My accent is the one where cot and caught sound the same (because augh and the short o should always sound the same :lol: ). They do change though depending on the tone of my voice though. I should record Fanny Crosby's "Vict'ry Through Grace" sometime, but the words "conquer" and "conquering" appea...

Re: What's a Book You Wish Was in the Public Domain?

The Chronicles of Narnia, for sure. Technically a book series, but they are masterpieces of Lewis. As a writer, the prose is beautiful and I long to write they way he does.

1 and 2 Esdras (World English Bible)

Has anyone thought of recording "3 Ezra" and "4 Ezra" (1 and 2 Esdras)? The WEB bible has translated them, and they have verses missing in other public domain versions, save the RV-1896. The only problem is that they use the Greek names, e.g. Abidas for Obadiah, Esdras for Ezra, Aggeus for Haggai, e...
