I'm a young book-lover from Finland. I read about Librivox in a Finnish blog and I liked the idea immediately. I listened to Tuija's great recording of Helsinkiin and I thought that this is something I want to do.

Tomorrow I'll go to buy a microphone so I can start recording right away. First I'm going to read some English short works and then I'll start a solo project of some Finnish book.

Awsome! We have another Finnish reader already and would love to hear more of that intriguing language of yours! :D

Something you might want to look at for a first project, to ease yourself into recording, is Raezel's Finnish poem (that we are all desperately trying to learn to pronounce):

Liian Paha Sappi by Aaro Hellaakoski

Anyone is welcome to record it.
