Hi Mikey, welcome back! This project got seriously scrambled when the original coordinator, Glovis, disappeared. I was unable to contact him to collect the already-recorded files. I tried to contact all the readers via email and private message, but was unable to reach everyone, so I had to find ne...

Hi kids! Long time no visit! I just visited LV again after a looooong time away and saw that this book just got posted. Did my Chapter 6 not meet some standards? What did I miss? I hope to come back and do some more recordings soon, just don't have the time right now. Hope all is well, and congrats ...

I want to apologize. I suddenly had to veer away from Librivox for a while, and I was so excited at first - bit off more than I could, erm, chew, I guess, and work and other things got in the way. I'm stuck between tax time and having to move next month, so the squeeze is on, time and money-wise As ...

If anybody needs an understudy, let me know. I would have loved to have read from this one.

Was that an attempted burn in a thread about excessive niceness? Nice. If you're talking to me, no, I wasn't trying to burn anyone. :shock: Maybe I overstepped my bounds. Trust me, you learn that lesson very quickly when your colleagues critique your preaching. And trust me, working on a song recor...

Point #1: As a Chicagoan, I moved to Seattle 12 years ago - and was gradually surprised at how passive-aggressive people were here. In Chicago, somewhat as in New York, people are gruff at first, and friendly and honest afterwards - in Seattle, people are friendly at first, and they close up if you ...

Re: H.G. Well's books are truely works of art

Would you consider "The First Men in the Moon" by H.G. Wells? It is by far my favorite story by this author. Please! My wife is quite good at reading aloud. I think I'll see if she'll tackle a book for the fun of it. I remember reading First Men too, and loved it. If your wife isn't up for it, I th...

Mikey -- I bet the pronunciation was tough -- how many takes did it take you get through all that? I think you do an excellent job of a really tricky passage -- you make it sound almost like a wildlife documentary. A really pro job. I listened without the text in front of me (I think that's how mos...

Hi Alaoui, Although the resulting mp3s are are same size whether they were originally recorded in stereo or mono, a lot of us record in mono to save resources on our computers. A mono .wav or .aif file takes half the time to save or filter, and of course takes up only half the disk space! When I us...

Alaoui - Howdy from Phinney Ridge (an old Cap Hill denizen myself). I'm a musician too and I've thought about this, and then promptly shelved the idea. I guess it depends on the literature, but there's a point where an audiobook can cross over into a radio play, which is no longer just the human voi...

Chapter 32 posted. http://s27.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0LRXX96XYA4WU2Q6XJMZ1DEXDO The pronunciation on some of those names was a little rough, but I think I pulled it off. And I did go ahead with my "or" method on the translations, and I think it works okay - not as awkward as I had anticipated. At a...

Mikey you did a great job on chapter 6, so I wouldn't be surprised if you came up with a musical solution that sounds better than singing drunkards :lol: Wait a second, singing drunkards? Murder? Is this really children's lit? :? Hehe, thanks. It's interesting - "The Song of the Deserted Shepherdes...

In general, this is left up to the individual reader to deal with as he or she thinks best. We credit you with being able to make sense of such things in your reading. ... You just do what seems best to you. One of the charming things about LibriVox is listening to different people handle these sit...

Okay, I've done a test recording of Chapter 32, but I have a question. Note the parenthetical text in the following: Still my imagination carried me away amongst the wonderful speculations of palaeontology. Though awake I fell into a dream. I thought I could see floating on the surface of the waters...
