Try positioning the mic slightly above and off to one side of your mouth. That'll help reduce the popping considerably and it'll also give the recordings a much greater dynamic range. My microphone sits on the desk next to my monitor, and that seems to work pretty well. (It's a Logitech USB microph...

I just read "Howl's Moving Castle", in which this poem figures prominently. Ok, I definitely need to give this one a try. :)

Clicking on the LibriVox logo at the top of this page should take you to the main page, not to the list of discussion forums.

At that point, I'd think it would be better to group them by author, not by which set of 20 each one happened to fall into. Peter
