Hello, my name is Anjuli. I am a high school student at Mary Institute and Country Day School. I love literature and just books in general. I found LibriVox through iTunes and i knew that i had found a place that could be really very useful to me. I have already listened to Pride & Prejudice, The Romance of Tristan and Iseult, and am starting Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I am quite excited and willing to do volunteer work here and am infact looking forward to it. Our school has a very intense literature program but most of what we read isnt quite the Classics that i want us to read, and since i am constantly caught up with school, and piano, and independant reading, and sports, i have decided to put that iPod, which rarely leaves my ears to good use. I am soo excited!!! :wink:

Welcome Anjuli! I hope you will learn lots here and volunteer lots too. Most of all ENJOY yourself. :)

Two great places to start are short stories or poems so you can test out your recording setup. Here are the links:

And another great way to volunteer is proof listening:

This is a great place to get a jump on everyone else! :)

Yes, welcome, welcome! I'm ready to catalog my children's history of england but for some proof-listening! If that sounds like fun, see the Our Island Story thread in the Proof LIstening section :)

Yup, definitely MICDS. It is a very beautiful place, but inside its not all THAT fancy. It's cool that you know it because a lot of people living in St. Louis dont even know it!

I don't know how you can not know it. It's more like a museum than a school. But then I haven't been inside. I'm a good old fashioned public school girl. :D

welcome welcome welcome!
I'm going to make an idle wager that you won't be able to resist the urge to record for any longer than ... hmm ... two and a half weeks.

your website is so fun!
I am of your mind -- the new Superman is flawless!
I was so to-the-extreme pleased with his performance and his creature grace, and with the director's handling and the director of photography's lighting and angles. Beautiful! Kevin Spacey is a magnificent Luther, too! yow. In the case of Superman, story is secondary to characterization and relationships ... something like that.

Ever since my son, Eddy, was smitten with Superman, and we videotaped a series of adventures called Superman 4-and-a-half (when Eddy was ... that age), I've had a special appreciation for the Man of Steel. My, my, that was ten years ago. [I hand-stitched a couple pretty excellent capes. :) Yup.]

welcome welcome welcome!

Thank you,, I love Myspace, it is soo much fun and you realy can personalize it a LOT! And about Superman, Yes i would definitely have to agree. Brandon Routh was an excellent choice for Superman, he is so tall and so defined. Ahhh, he is hot.

That's pretty cool about Superman 4 and a half.

And i think that i will be able to resist recording since, i dont have the equipment and stuff, but i am am listening, so i still feel like a contributor!

Thank you.
