Three sections of this project have just been orphaned. Hey, I'm pretty sure at least some of these were mine. I'd like to apologize properly. As you may have noticed I've not been around on here lately and I've had a lot of stuff in the real world to deal with, meaning LV just hasn't been on my mi...

I hope that post was a joke, Hazel ;)

Come on guys, linguistic prescriptivism is outdated and silly! Whatever conveys the message most effectively is surely the best use of language, whether it conforms to standard English or not! :P

I'm vegan and, although I'm not a raw foodist, I know a couple people who are. Personally, I subscribe to the view that one of the most important developments in humans as a species was the discovery of cooking. There's plenty of literature on this and the basic fact is that, as previously mentioned...

Hi, I'd like to apologise for my delay in re-recording Chapters 24 and 25... I've had a lot of personal issues over the past few weeks to deal with and Librivox really hasn't been on my mind, I'm very sorry about this! Checking the magic window it seems they've been given PL OK. However, if they are...

Heya, apologies for the massive delay, I've been in foreign lands for the past week but now should be back to business as usual! I've done Chapter 23 and will be uploading it in a second, I'll edit this post when its done - I'll then wait for the PL before moving on to 24 and 25 :) http://upload.lib...

As I am currently learning Arabic, this project is really exciting for me. I doubt I'd be able to understand much, but still, as I learn more and more I'll be able to understand more and more. Although I can read the Arabic script smoothly normally, with the slightly faded pages and the font and wit...

Sorry for not starting recording sooner, I've gone from days with no plans filled with free time to intensely filled days which have been both time consuming and physically exhausting (I have no money, so have been walking everywhere, which is no doubt doing me a lot of good, but means when I get ho...

I listen to them so I can do other things at the same time like workout or go for a bike ride. That's kind of the opposite of lazy. I do the same thing - I stick my earphones in and start doing my housework or go for a walk or some other definitely NOT lazy chore. :roll: Precisely! I listen to 'em ...

It depends on the circumstances, if I'm asked what I'm currently reading, I tend to say what I'm physically reading, and then say what I'm listening to as an audiobook. But if I'm just discussing an audiobook I've already listened to I tend to describe it as though I've read it. Like, Jane Eyre is o...

Well, I'm in a different room now, and the recording I've just finished up I'm sure you'll agree is much improved... It is Benedictus De Spinoza - Ethics - 3-13 and I'll post the link on that thread within half an hour... Would it be possible for you to have a listen to that one instead? I'd quite l...

I think I'm just going to rerecord them... They were done in my room down in London which doesn't have much space, and has paper thin walls... The strange thing was that the surface wasn't hard and there was nothing else electrical on in the room, except the lights and my phone (which was set to sil...

Its just really strange and confusing - it seems like we're hearing different versions from the same link, which defies all logic :/ Are you sure the latest is coming up in stereo? Because I specifically remember mixing it down to mono, and its coming up as mono on mine... If the noise levels aren't...

I've been using Audacity, and can't afford anything else. The problem is that when I play the file it *is* corrected, there's barely any noise (and what there is is happening at the same time as the talking, so 'noise removal' would surely ruin the rest of the recording) and it is definitely not in ...
