I found LibriVox about a month ago, and have really been enjoying it. I have always been interested in "the classics," and have long known about Project Gutenburg, but I don't like reading from a computer screen for very long. Audio books are great though, because I am on the road at least an hour most days, and can listen while I drive.
I have a fondness for poetry, and really enjoy reading it aloud. Just today I posted my first recording, the special LibriVox anniversary poem, which I hope turned out well. I plan to do more poetry readings, and maybe I will work my way up to short stories or book chapters.

Welcome!

If you're interested, there are some very short fables available for Aesop's Fables Volume 10: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1853

They're great for new volunteers to start out with.

Best,
Nikolle

Hey tearsonroses,
I'll say again, your reading of the anniversary poem was gorgeous.

I'd mentioned, too, your volume being just a tiny bit low.
Maybe your input volume could be raised a notch.
Wanted to tell you my favorite method of boosting volume is to duplicate the track (do it after any editing, as a last step). It boosts the sound and makes a slightly richer/rounder audio (digital is like that).
Let me know if I can be of further confusion. ;)

I look forward to your next recordings!

[I second the fables--so short, they're poetic.]
