Hi everyone

I was born in the German-speaking part of Switzerland and have been living in NZ for the past 15 years. At present time my favourite (old!) writers are: Franz Kafka and Mark Twain. I would like to take on some German-spoken projects at LV but have decided to do so slowly.

Hi Huskey, welcome to LibriVox! We'll be so happy to hear your voice when you're ready to record. Here's a newbie guide: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/NewbieGuideToRecording

We also need help with proof-listening and other things. As a matter of fact, I just posted a request for someone to write me a short summary of Der Struwwelpeter, which I recorded in German.

(my german skills aren't quite good enough for fluent composition, heheh)

Have fun, and fee free to ask any questions you might have!

Hi Huskey! Nice to have you here!

I currently spot at least 4 projects over in "Readers Wanted: Books" that are specifically in German, so there's plenty to choose from. You might want to start with something short: they're in English, but Weekly Poetry and Aesop's Fables (both in "Readers Wanted: Short Works") both tend to be very short and good for getting used to the recording process.

Have fun - I look forward to hearing your voice. :)

Hi Huskey. Great to have you here. We've definitely been blessed with lots of bilingual readers. It makes it a lot easier to get the variety we are seeing here.

Just holler if you still have questions.
