Thank you. That explains it -- I hit "add sections" and it turned into "add readers." :) I'll put the chapter headings, etc. in today and get started. (I have to remember that sexism and racism is part of historical accuracy, and that I don't believe in censorship.)

Re: For the life of me, I can't find ...

Thank you, Devorah. I don't mean to say that I intend to try to SOUND like good and experienced readers -- I just think it's helpful to listen to them. The first reader that lured me in to the world of Librivox listening was Kara. She has such a comforting, easy-going voice! And of course there are ...

Re: For the life of me, I can't find ...

No, that post wasn't that important, but it bugged me that I couldn't readily find it again. :) I looked up lists, mostly by homeschooling parents, of the best Librivox readers, and gave them a listen. Some are very pleasing to listen to, and others maybe not my cup of tea. But it's good to get an i...

...a conversation I saw in the Forum last week about how to improve reading skills. Take a class? Watch videos? I believe the last advice, from someone who's been here for a while, was "practice." But I can't find the thread. I'm new at this. Other than reading for three hours per day to five childr...

Re: [Poetry] The Haunted Hour - mas

Hah! (chub rub. not really.) That missing poem? I recorded it twice, chose the one I liked better, and obviously deleted them BOTH! And I will be careful of the noise. I changed rooms, chairs, positions, everything. Thank you,

There are twenty some-odd selections available. (And believe me, some of them are ODD!) :D I will try to get through some miscellaneous chapters this week and take a few more from the Topaz Story Book. Anyone else game? :clap:
