Hi folks,

I just searched for "Flatland" and saw you have it as a work in progress.

This is one of the top 10 books of literature for me of all time. Like most devotees, I was introduced to it by my math teacher (7th or 8th grade), and I've probably read it thru 20 or 30 times since then. I often reference quirky sections of this book, and am still impressed by the mind that came up with it, and the possibilities it indicates of dimensions beyond our own even here in Spaceland!

Not to mention the hilarious satirical commentary it offers regarding the role of women in society, how Government functions, the treatment of the military and those "less Equilateral" than others. It's a real gem!

If there is anything I can do to help this work progress to completion, please let me know. I've just started reading for LibriVox (about 8 or 9 submittals so far), but I'd be happy to contribute in any other way since it looks like you have each reading section already assigned.

Best of luck. This is a fantastic book!!!

Hi! Thanks for your comment! I agree with you, that this is a wonderful piece of literature! This is a solo project, but if anything happens, and we need someone else to contribute to the narrations, I will let you know. If there’s any other way that you could get involved, I will also contact you with a private message. Please let me know, also, if you have any questions about LV, or the recording process. I’ll be happy to help you out, as well!
From the 4th dimension,
Linda

Thanks, Linda! I'll be hovering just above Flatland waiting to intersect the plane if needed!!!

Hi Dave! I’m still here, just busy with work. Do you think we should put the project on hold, or open it for group recordings?
