Hey forum,
been lurking here a bit over the past couple months, decided to sign up and do some reading!
Really like the idea of the project, listened to a couple really cool audiobooks off youtube, and looking forward to contributing! Hopefully after work tonight I can get my 1 minute sample up and then sign up for a chapter or two!
Looking forward to it,
Ben

Hi and welcome.
The best starting point is submitting a one minute test and the team there will guide you on getting your setup right. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test There is no need for an expensive mic... a decent USB mic can be bought for about $20 on Amazon. Of course, you can pay a lot more for a better one, but best to see if you enjoy recording before forking out :D

When you start, it is best to read a chapter or two of established projects, but once you are familiar with the site and the process, you can branch out to any Public Domain text that interests you.
