ha, that list was longer than anticipated. but i dont accept any complaints this year that there isnt enough material!

please note that i have not looked too closely at each text.

any admin can delete a post if the suggestion was adopted or else if i just didnt see the project.

some of the texts are actually short stories that might fit into the next christmas collection rather than becoming an individual project :)

There are two Christmas short stories in this collection that have not yet been read. They are “SUSIE ROLLIFFE'S CHRISTMAS” and “CHRISTMAS EVE IN WAR TIMES” in this collection:

Taken Alive by Edward P. Roe

I don’t think I will be getting to them this year, but someone might like to. :D

Hello, I have a certain Charles Dickens book in mind it is titled The Chimes.
Only 4 chapters though wc for the book is roughly 29,769.00
Not knowing just where on LV it might go imagine my joy when I noticed this thread.
I am willing to record this and I await your reply as to where it should go once I do, if not on this thread. I have attached the book's info below. I see that the book is on Guttenberg.

It will be a nice solo version of 4-5 hours, judging from the version we already have:
