I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, and get a chance to do some reading aloud. I'll be interested to see what people think. Thanks!

Hi Billy, welcome to librivox! Claim a chapter of something and jump right in. The Grimm's Fairy Tales project (over in Readers Wanted) is a great way to get your feet wet. If you have questions about how to get started or anything, ask away!

Thanks, kayray, and Cori.

Neptune the eighth planet from the sun in our solar system, with a mass of 10 to the 24th power kg, and 13 natural satellites. It was discoverd by Johann Gottfried Galle (based on predictions by John Couch Adams and Urbain Leverrier) on September 23, 1846. It seems to have an atmosphere composed mostly of Molecular hydrogen 80.0%, Helium 19.0%, and Methane 1.5%.

Neptune is also the Roman god of the sea, and of horse racing. Very big in Kentuky. His symbol is the Trident.

And to me, Neptune is a place far away from Earth, and her troubles. Plus I just thought is sounded cool when I thought it up out of the blue one day.
