Hi, what a wonderful concept and great to see this being put into action!
I would love to be a volunteer reader, are there any restrictions I should know about? Accents etc.? I notice most are from the USA.
Loking forward to hanging around here for a while,
Mel

Hi Mel - no restrictions at all! We have readers with accents from all over the world. We have women reading men's parts and vice versa. We have adults, teens and even children reading for us. We have poetry, children's books, sci fi, literature, political and philosophical writings.

Just browse the fora to see what you fancy - sign up for a chapter or a poem first perhaps, read the recording tips, and off you go!

So glad to have you here - any questions, please ask!

Ah, I see you've already signed up for some Beatrix Potter - fabulous! Hope you'll enjoy your first recording.

Mel -- we _welcome_ regional dialects! Variety is the spice of life, or whatever :)

Happy reading,
