Re: Hi from Upstate NY

Great! I am still a way from retiring myself, but certainly know what it’s like to look forward to the point when I will have more time for Librivox. :D

Re: Hello Everyone!

A great reason to volunteer! There are often children’s book projects here — maybe you can channel those early experiences into your reading. Have fun!

Re: Quick Question about a London Address [ANSWERED]

I’m late to the party, but for the record I think my fellow Brits would probably just say the letter. Most often you see these area codes in London with a number, e.g. SW1, and I’ve never heard anyone say “south west 1”. Just SW1.

I'll have a go at 13, A Bad Idea. Thanks! All yours. And, because I see you are new here (welcome!) can you let me know what you want your name to be in the catalogue?

Re: [GROUP] The Doves' Nest and Other Stories - Katherine Mansfield - kit

Thanks, both. Malka, I don’t think anyone has replied to your one minute test yet, but it sounds good to me.

I had similar problems when I first started BCing plays (the plays I BC are usually Jacobean, so the stage directions are often in the margin and it's not obvious when they should be said). A unified set of rules might be useful...
