I'm Alphareadsbooks (real name Clay Beauchamp), and I'm excited to be here! I've been reading out loud since my early teens to someone very dear to me who's had dyslexia since childhood paired with an incessant love of books, so a site like Librivox--along with its dedicated community--means the world to me. What you all have been doing here (and for free!) is nothing short of beautiful, and becoming a part of it is a blessing.
I'm 29 now and after nearly a decade of not reading aloud I've recently come to find I've missed it dearly. I tend to read in a low, yet expressive, register and specialize in fiction works; there's something extremely fun, challenging, and even immersive about acting out each individual character, and nonfiction rarely provides this aspect of reading.
Aside from this account I also read aloud twice a week on twitch.tv, also under the alphareadsbooks moniker, with the goal of helping people relax. On top of that I have an ACX account under my real name, though as of writing I've just begun that particular journey as well.
It's very nice to meet all of you, and I'm glad to be a part of this team!

Done and done; questions I'm sure will be forthcoming. This community is one of the best I've seen in a forum from what I've observed. Thank you for the advice, phil, and thank you all for just being awesome. :clap:
