Short story and weekly poem collection:


And the listeners wanted will give you an idea what things are supposed to sound like :)

If you want to start recording, I'd recommend a few poems or short stories so you can edit sound and basically play about with the software without the hassle of rerecording a long chapter etc. Then you can try a few chapters or pick your favourite PD novel....

welcome to LibriVox!! :D

You may also find the Newbie Guide to Recording in the Livrivox wiki (linked to at the top of this page) useful, if you've not done this sort of thing before. :)

Proof-listening is ALWAYS appreciated, and is a good way to help out while (for example) you're working and can't do recording.

What, me proof-listen at work? Naw. ;)
