Hey Librivox!
I am Addy from India. I am a poet and a literature student. I have listened to a lot of audio poems on Librivox and am gonna try my best to read the verses of Byron, Coleridge, Gray, Johnson and some lost poets and sort of unravel them to the world of rhythm. I'm sure every bit of poetry by those poets is as sweet as the famous ones of Wordsworth.

Hello! I'm a newly registered user from India too!! I've been a listener for about five years now and I finally thought why not give reading a try as well. Have you submitted your one minute voice test?
I didn't know that people from India knew about librivox!!
