Re: August Libriversaries

Librivox is 13 years old this month. Hard to believe. I remember the day it was born. We thought it'd be amazing if we ever recorded 100 books, and now we have over 12,000. Thank you, everyone. You are librivox!

Re: Reading sections of novels

Like Tricia, I just jump in. I think it's fun to try to puzzle out what's going on while I'm recording, and I get bored if I pre-read.

And I, too, enjoy the charming little variations that occur in group recordings :)

My suggestion is that your voice will best match what you are most interested in and excited by! What kind of books do you like to read for yourself?
YES. Please don't feel you need to read a book that matches your dialect, age, or gender. Read something that seems like fun to you! :9:

Re: Multilingual Short Works Collection 020 - icequeen

Kevin Stroud, the host of "The History of English Podcast" http://historyofenglishpodcast.com/ , has generously donated a recording of a poem in Middle English. He doesn't have time to post it himself so I am his surrogate. Please let me know if anything needs to be fixed. I've been working with Kev...

Re: Catalog Problem

Kaffen, I keep a personal page with links to all of my solos and duets and just send people there if they want to find my recordings :D

It's much easier than trying to describe how to find the advanced search, put my name in, tick completed, tick solos...

Re: Can I record an audiobook of something already recorded?

In other words, you are welcome to record your own version of anything that's already in our catalog -- we have multiple versions of many books. Check out "Pride and Prejudice"! It would be a pity if you couldn't record your favorite book just because someone else beat you to it, and having multiple...
