Hello everyone! 🌞
My name is Alexander, I live in Ukraine and speak a little English and Italian.

Image

Recently, I have been trying to listen to English-language books to improve my language skills during my main manual work - crochery or another that allows it - for example, when processing photos and so on. I am glad that there is such an association of sociable and friendly volunteers who devote their time and efforts to voice books and distribute them for free.
You guys are really great! ✋🤚
Not everything here was immediately clear to me, but I am sincerely grateful to the patient moderators and administrators who explain everything to me clearly. I think that at first I will just continue to enjoy listening to other performers and learning something from them, but over time, with my strategic thinking, I suppose that I can contribute my part to this exciting common cause, in one form or another.
It is unlikely that this will concern the English-speaking sphere, but rather the Ukrainian-speaking one. But for sure, there is more than enough work and opportunities to be useful there. Those who sincerely want to be useful will always find a suitable way to be useful! 👍
Here I am happy to get acquainted with new things for me, phenomena, concepts and, of course, interesting people. This experience has already given me a lot of pleasure and I believe and hope that others will also be interesting and pleasant with me, more and more with time.
Once again, thank you all and - good luck! All the best in the new year and always! 💜

So has passed the first month of 2021 and the first month of my closer acquaintance with this wonderful site. I am looking forward to new interesting acquaintances and communication, and also glad to learn various new things for me concerning the most diverse areas of knowledge and human activity. For me, this is an interesting and useful site and experience.
Many thanks to everyone who makes this all possible! 💚
And also soon I should get my new microphone, with which I plan to start making various audio recordings. Of course, it is still inexpensive too, but it must be definitely better than the smartphone microphone I have recorded with so far for YouTube.
In general, everything is fine - I manage to work, develop and move forward, and this is a lot!
I wish you all - all the best! 💛

Blessings! 🧡

Greetings and wishes of a wonderful spring to everyone who reads this. 🍉
Just on the first day of the new season, I managed to get my first PL experience - so far in Ukrainian. It was pleasant and educational. So I plan to develop here a little bit and even get to my new mic someday.
The months of my last year in the front-line territory are rapidly running away. Here I am limited in many ways, so I can not even take responsibility for the DPL, but from next year I must return to a calmer atmosphere and allow myself more - in particular, in terms of volunteering.
Everything is fine, in fact. 👍
Love and be loved! 💜

Not a bad spring, to say the truth! 🌼
I`ve been away for a pair of weeks, but now am again here, ready to engage in interesting things to me, with joy and benefit for myself and others. Since Ukrainian texts ready for PLing there are not yet, I will try to search for Russian ones. I want to practice on them before moving to other familiar languages, English and Italian.
Best wishes and good April to everyone who reads it! ✨
And thank you for being here! 🐋

I finish this good April by completing my first audiobook with pleasant girls FrancescaRoma e TriciaG, where I`m a DPL; what a nice thing! 🍾

I hope there will be many others of well-done projects - here and anywhere - in the coming May and ever! 🐋

Thanx to all who makes it all possible, to all of you, to all of us!

Be healthy! Be blessed! 🌞

P. S.: Well, having no another better place to store the LV completed projects where I am a DPL, I`ll list them right here:

Don`t worry, pls, for I`m always glad to communicate with you. 🦦
I simply have some strategical plans and don`t want to disperse myself too much. Among other things, I recently finally received a new and very good jaw harp and have to make some fresh youtube videos etc.
I bet on the quality, not on the quantity of actions.

And wish you a torrent of pleasure! 🌊

I'm relieved a bit, because it's not bombing that stops you from recording, so it means "no way in May" :D

Good luck with you jaw harp practice)
Thank you

I`m happy to create some youtube videos, which are in some way connected with LibriVox and its members. I hope they will be even more numerous and better! For now, here they are:

It was a good May, with successful work, its joys and achievements. 👍
I began to make some repairs to the housing, which should take about seven more months, under the contract.
I continue to work, engage in interesting activities and PL with pleasure various wonderful projects here.

Thank you for reading this! I wish you an enchantingly great end to May and the beginning of April!
Stay safe! 👐
