Re: [SOLO] Reports to Mass. Board of Educ. - Horace Mann - iq

Thanks, Anne! It'll be next month before i get back to this project, unfortunately. Both my jobs are giving me lots of work (which is good, since I like the resulting paychecks!) but it doesn't leave me much LV time (which is of course bad, since I miss my hobby!) Anyway, I want to use what time I d...

Section 40 is PL OK! Just the right length to get a bunch of stuff done!
Thanks, Anne!
Always feels good to "get stuff done"!

That concludes the Tenth Report. Onward to the Eleventh, Twelfth, and the finish line! We are approaching the home stretch in the marathon! (At long last!)

Re: Weekly/Fortnightly Poetry Suggestions

Is there anywhere I can find a list of all the Fortnightly/Weekly Poetry projects completed on Librivox to date. I can't find a search term that produces any results. I went to Advanced Search, and from the "Genre" drop-down menu, I selected "Poetry > Multi Version (Weekly and Fortnightly Poetry)" ...

Re: Which of Final Commission Reports do you prefer?[MORE ADDED]

I remember that at one time we had looked for the report on the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident, and you had located a link to a source. But then it got deleted in that weird incident where all the posts between September and October 2016 were accidentally wiped out. I don't think the...

Re: [Multilingual] WWI Centenary Prose Collection Vol. III-mas

Here's a little topic I stumbled upon while browsing a library history blog's series of posts about the American Library Association's WWI military libraries. Found it interesting -- so I checked for any PD short work I might add to this collection and found this on Hathitrust. Title - "Soldiers, Sa...

Re: An April Adventure! (participants: 20, successes: 12)

And ... Maria, I'm super-glad you're enjoying the sci-fi. Are you a short story reader usually, or is that a bit unusual for you too? I rarely read SF short stories, I'm all about the novels (in my reading life, anyway -- for LV I don't tend to do either now, no particular reason.) I hadn't thought...

I had fun with my first sci-fi story, so decided to attempt another, a wacky little comedy called "We Didn't Do Anything Wrong, Hardly" by Roger Kuykendall -- (length 10:21). Awaiting PL.
This has now been marked PL OK!

Re: [GRP] Watergate Report, Vol. 3 - tg

Thank you! 13-15 are yours. Stay safe today! (I assume you're getting nasty weather, too. I know that the Niagara peninsula is getting hit, and I saw all the church cancellations in the BUF area on TV last night.) We dodged a bullet here. Only about a quarter-inch of ice in the Rochester area, enou...

I've just uploaded a story to the Short Science Fiction collection. It's a simple little character study of a man and his robot, "Beside Still Waters" by Robert Scheckley. (Length 10:40). Still awaiting PL. "Beside Still Waters" has now been marked PL OK. I had fun with my first sci-fi story, so de...
