Hello from the West of Ireland!

Hello there!

I am a new Librivox volunteer, but have listened and really enjoyed a lot of Librivox recordings in the past. I'm very happy to be part of the project now that I have some free time on my hands, and I'm hoping to record a lot (if I can get my head around the tech specs!).
