Re: Finding Solo Works

Yay! Record away and don't worry about trying to fit an accent to the book. I certainly don't! Before I saw that you'd chosen your solo, I was going to mention that I'm also an American Southerner and I've found F. Scott Fitzgerald's stories easy to read aloud. They seem to fit my natural speech pat...

Re: [PD?] Why hasnt the unibomber's manifesto been done?

(Can't believe we're actually talking about this but) it wasn't written by a US government employee, so it would still be under copyright even if it turned up on a government website. Some material on US government websites is under copyright because it was created by contractors or came from non-go...

Re: in search of the castaways

Thanks for the offer! Kristine (original BC) has also said she'd record it (I asked by PM), so I'll let the two of you arm-wrestle over it. :)

Re: in search of the castaways

Verified that section 49 (Book 3, Chapter 4) is missing half the chapter. There's an end-of-chapter statement, but the reader didn't read the whole chapter. The reader hasn't been on the forum since 2011, so we'll need somebody to either record the second half or just redo the whole chapter. (Though...

Re: סיפורים (Stories) - FIXED

This is fixed. The title of Section 3 has been corrected and a new Section 4 has been added (book now has 9 sections, not 8). Thanks again for reporting the problem!

Re: Prosaic reading of what is meant to be Poetry

You might be interested to read this article by Billy Collins, a former US Poet Laureate, explaining to teenagers how to read poems aloud. The link includes an audio recording of Mr. Collins reading a poem in the style you object to. He is discussing modern poetry, so rhyme and meter are not as regi...

Re: Beacon Lights of History, Vol 11 by Lord

I'm happy to MC this one too (unless Dave would like to?). I'll go ahead and set it up and can switch it over to Dave if you'd like.
