Re: This week's scientific quiz

Haha! When is the book sale? What?! SELL my books?! NEVER! I will keep them till they collapse the house! HaHa indeed! However, in the interests of not collapsing the house, I have sworn off buying any more books. Not one new book. For the past decade, I have resisted even the temptation of library...

Re: This week's scientific quiz

Our next scientific quiz (or poll) may involve the greatest number of books that can be safely stacked one on top of the other. You mean something like this? https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgjrit4yjpigg1t/Capture.JPG?dl=0 (Those leaning stacks have been leaning at roughly that same angle for months, and...

CMTO and NSM-SAPA are Librivox-generated (blame Sonia and me) acronyms not likely widely known by the world outside of our Dramatic Works forum.

Re: [COMPLETE] The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield - tg

Thank you, Tricia!

I just uploaded the cover files.

Well, I met my own New Year's challenge - (recorded a novel) - and met my deadline - (to be part of cleanup month). So I'm happy.

Kevin, thanks for all the last-minute PL'ing!

Hope to work with you both again soon!

Re: [SOLO] The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield - tg

Tricia - I just noticed that I made a typo in the synopsis in the first post. The last sentence is missing a word. I wrote "to return the lives" instead of "to return to the lives". I have made the correction in the first post. But I believe that the original version is the one that will appear at c...
