Re: [FULL/POETRY] New Hampshire, by Robert Frost - tg

Thanks! I'll check them later today. Good-Bye and Keep Cold Thanks! :lol: It's 7* F on our front porch, with a wind. And I get to go to the medical clinic. Yay! :roll: Tricia, I'm just across the lake from you. It's 15 degrees Fahrenheit here, (I guess that's about 8 in Celsius?), snowing steadily,...

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost - dl

Here's mine - (1:18) https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/snowyevening_frost_mk_128kb.mp3 This poem is very special to me and my sisters. When we were little girls, my dad concocted a thing known ever after in our family as "The Bathroom Wall Poems". He would post a poem on the wall beside the bathr...

Re: ~[HISTORY] Fires and Fire-fighters by John KENLON - jo

I'm up for DPL. It's a job role I've not yet performed on Librivox, but I reckon I can learn. Thank you, Seth! PL'ing is easy to learn. For this project, only standard level PL is needed, so you don't need to read along with the text as you would if it were a word-perfect PL. Basically, this is wha...

Re: ~[HISTORY] Fires and Fire-fighters by John KENLON - jo

John Kenlon is my great-great-grandfather! Is this a Librivox first, that someone recognises an author as a blood relative? That is very cool, Seth! To be able to connect with a long-gone relative through his own writings strikes me as a great way to bring the past to life! We're still in need of a...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2019

I only remembered to update my 2018 Book List three times, in January, July, and today, which means I really have to work hard to remember what I read. (Thank goodness my public library sends me e-mails reminding me of what books I took out! Fortunately most of my reading comes from the library.) So...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2018

Um ... okay ... I forgot to update my 2018 reading list since July. But I just did my best to complete it, here: viewtopic.php?p=1425910#p1425910

Now I'm off to start my 2019 list. I am determined to update it at least once a month this year!
