Re: Offlining Librivox

I understand why you'd want to focus on the LibriVox site directly, but another strategy would be to crawl the pages for each recording on the Internet Archive. Each page would have the metadata for the recordings built into it, as a bonus, and each description of the item will contain a link back t...

Re: LibriVox Community Podcast Planning

Hello podcast folks. Have there been any segments on sexism / racism in recent ‘casts? If not, I’d love to hear suchlike. 100-year-old books are full of stuff that doesn’t agree with modern sensibilities ( ao it’s in your interest to look at a book/chapter before you volunteer to record it!

Re: [Grp] The Black Eagle Mystery by Geraldine Bonner - lt

Chapter 4 PL OK! I'm going to say, I very much appreciate the fact that we, as a society, no longer view 50 year old women as faded, washed up, and no longer useful. I'm getting there in the next few years, and it just astounds me when I see pictures of my grandparents my age and they look OLD. My ...

Re: (Short Stories) Uncollected Short Stories of L.M. Montgomery by Lucy Maud Montgomery - m8b1

Section 75 is PL OK ~ thank you! As the characters name are Paul and Averill, there is no question that they are a man and a woman. Pet name for Paulette, perhaps? :p Writing openly gay works would have been too scandalous for a lot of people, so there was (is) a style where the writer deliberately...
