Hello,
I am very new to this but I want to read books written by Mormons. I have found I few books that I think are public domain. I have search the site and find nothing on these men. I want to make sure the following books will work. I would like to read some of the following books:

WIDTSOE, JOHN A

Thanks, Robert Johnson

Welcome Robert! You just need to find public domain copies of these works. That means they need to be published before 1923.

Have you tried looking at the Internet Archive?

I've found this:

The life of Brigham Young (1893)
http://www.archive.org/details/lifeofbrighamyou00anderich

journal of discourses by president brigham young (1872)
http://www.archive.org/details/journaldiscours00carrgoog

The Life of John Taylor: Third President of the Church of Jesus Christ of ... (1892)
http://www.archive.org/details/lifejohntaylort00taylgoog

JOURNAL OF DISCOURSES BY PRESIDENT JOHN TAYLOR, HIS COUNSELLORS, THE TWELVE APOSTLES AND OTHERS. (1881)
http://www.archive.org/details/journaldiscours00levigoog

There are probably many others, so I would suggest you take a look at the Internet Archive. :)

Best wishes,

Dear Robert,

It would be great to have some LDS books in the catalogue. Have you submitted a test recording yet? It would be good to do so in order to check your technical settings. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

It might be best to contribute to some existing projects before you set up your own solo or collaborative project. For information on being a book coordinator, see:

http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/How_To_Become_A_Book_Coordinator

A good place to contribute to would be the Weekly Poetry Project or other short works projects. Here's the one for this week: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24163

Best wishes,
Nicholas J. Bridgewater

Nicholas's advice is good. It's best to become familiar with the process, and to understand the time it takes to record, edit and co-ordinate. Then start with just one. Although there are hundreds of active readers here, there are a limited number of folk who wish to record non-fiction.

You are right about starting slow and doing a good job. I will do this but I want to see if any of these books are interesting to any readers. I cant wait to listen to the books!

I agree with that point, particularly with longer and/or solo projects.
