Greetings friends! I am Nekicia Luckett. I must have used Librivox when it was first created. For decades, I have envisioned myself as a Librivox volunteer, and now I have arrived! With enthusiasm and determination, I plan to be an active contributor to the Librivox family. Thank you for having me.

Welcome Nekicia. Jump on in and keep that enthusiasm. Your welcome email has lots of great information on getting started. May I ask, how you listened to the books? on an MP3 player, or phone, or where? I am curious about how people use the recordings and what trends there are.

Thank you for responding to my greeting. It's a pleasure to hear from you, Phil. :D I can't remember how I listened to Librivox recordings, but I know that I thought the idea of someone recording and reading to the public was fascinating (still is). :9: I didn't have a cell phone or any such devices, so I think I probably checked out cassette tapes from the county library. I frequented the library more than I did my own kitchen back then! :lol:
I have been told throughout my life that my voice is pleasing to hear. :clap: And I want to give this gift to the world. :clap: I hope I can record some Baha'i books with Librivox. Question: If I plan to travel out of the country, would I still be able to record as an American in USA? :?:
Peace.

That brings back memories. I took hundreds of cassette tape books out of our libraries! In many ways it was a simpler time.

You may record for LibriVox anywhere in the world if they have internet. Act ually you can record on a recorder and move it to the computer any time you wish. Welcome again.

Really nice. You'll note that there are already a few Baha'i works in the catalogue. I did a few as solo Baha'i projects but there were some group projects as well, such as volume I of the Promulgation of Universal Peace.
