Re: Librivox Book Club: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson

Mary's parents were virtual strangers to her, so she couldn't really miss them very much. Mary and Colin both came from seriously dysfunctional families. That they met and managed to "fix" each other is uplifting to me, and the process of that is what I think the story is about. I guess if we bear i...

Re: Librivox Book Club: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson

Well, I just finished listening. I cried at the end, as I always do. I agree with Anne about the beating thing. I don't think Ben was blaming the wife, just giving Colin a reality check. Colin was holding forth about how if you just keep saying something over and over the magic will make it happen. ...

Re: Librivox Book Club: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson

"Tiki tiki tembo no sa rembo chari bari ruchi pip perry pembo has fallen into the well!" Or something like that. I remember it from how many years ago? :shock: That's the one. I'll never forget it, I just wasn't in the mood to write it last night. I have the book upstairs but am too lazy to go chec...

Re: Librivox Book Club: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson

I do think children in general just take waht they want from books and that in fact they often prefer things that are more real life and not all "fluffy bunny like" I'm just downloading the book now, but I've read it quite a few times over the years. I just wanted to comment on the "age appropriate...

Personally, I never make any bloopers. (Of course, that may be because I've been a slacker for a while now.)

[FIXED] Best Mystery and Detective V1 sec5 missing chunk

I was listening to http://librivox.org/library-of-worlds-best-mystery-and-detective-stories-volume-1-by-julian-hawthorne-ed/ and when I got toward the end of section 5, I found myself confused. (This is not an uncommon state for me, by any means.) Anyway, I checked out the text and found that at 33:...

Re: 'Thank You' messages for LibriVox readers - continued

Praise for Sandra7 (Sandra G) via the 'Thank a reader' feature : I learned of this book in this forum, and I must add my thanks, Sandra. Your reading is incredible! I was especially impressed by your performance when a character was speaking while crying. There aren't many who can pull that off so c...

LOL Now why couldn't I have thought of that? I can think of a dozen clever ways I could have worded the question now that you've said it.

Thanks for the info, Anna.

[OK] Broken link?

There seems to be a broken link for the book A Mysterious Disappearance by Louis Tracy. I have tried to get to it from a link in the "Thanks" forum, from the reader's catalog page, and from a catalog search for the book. Each time I get an "unable to connect" error. This is the link: http://librivox...

Re: Isn't the requirement PD in the U.S.?

I was not referring to noting a missing word or something easy like that. Nor was I talking about friendly advice given to people who ask for it. However, I shouldn't have clouded the issue by mentioning that at all, since I'm sure that what I was referring to is not common LV policy. I can only ple...

Re: Isn't the requirement PD in the U.S.?

There are books that are just not made for beginners and LV can't have written instructions for every single problem that might come up. But it seems like there are more and more rules being added all the time. I have over 8 days of recordings on here, but I'm still paranoid every time I want to st...

Re: Isn't the requirement PD in the U.S.?

Again, though, I'm not talking about taking the time to find one author. If I wanted to record a short story and was asked to try to find the info about the author, I would gladly make the attempt. The book in question though, and there are many of this type, is a book containing stories and poems f...
