This is my first recording for LibriVox. I'm always looking for free public-domain audiobooks and I thought that I should start giving back.

Norah and Greg - thanks, got it!

Robert - just emailed you - didn't get the link to yousendit. May I also have the name under which you'd like to be listed on the LibriVox catalogue, plus a personal URL to which we should link, if you have one. :)

What a great poem! Plus the advice is even better than what Polonius gave to Laertes...

OK, here's my attempt:

http://uriblyd.beigetower.org/Librivox/if_kipling_lmu.mp3

This is my first attempt, both at reading for Librivox and at using Audacity, and I've done minimal file processing. Suggestions and comments welcomed, privately please! :)

Here's mine:

Peter and I first met this poem in Kipling's excellent so-called "children's book" Rewards and Fairies. One of these days, we'll post that as a book to read - the stories are really wonderful.

(Gee, can you tell I'm a Kipling fan?) :wink:

Feel free to use my full name, and my webpage, www.stanford.edu/~ceastman .

I suppose it would be rude for me to make a suggestion and then not bother to do the recording wouldn?t it?

Here I am again, submitting right on the deadline for the second week running!

2:35 / 2.38MB
Read by: Linton (no URL)

I had a couple of goes at this one, and I'm not sure whether this is really the best of them, but hopefully someone will like it. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to submit something for this real classic, even at the risk of not doing it justice (something which is probably pretty nearly impossible, actually :) ).

Enjoy!
