New from Canton, North Carolina, USA

Hello! I'm brand new here. I know that I have a lot of learning and exploring to do before getting involved; but I'm really excited to have found LibriVox!

I've been told all my life that I have a great speaking voice, and I absolutely love reading out loud. I was involved in college radio (I did all the station identifiers and a lot of advertisements) and competitive public speaking (to toot my own horn, I placed 1st in Ohio for storytelling--way back in 1999!).

Now I live in Canton, NC, with my husband and 2 spoiled dogs. I work in healthcare quality (for a diagnostic medical testing laboratory); and my hobbies include running, gardening, sewing, and reading (of course!).

If anyone has any helpful tips for a newbie, please feel free to share.

Thanks!

Jason

Welcome to LibriVox Jason! We want you to have fun here but at first it may seem a bit confusing. Be patient; everything will clear up eventually. I've made a little video to welcome people and share a few things that I think are nice to know about us at the start of your adventure. Note, these are just my feelings. In any case ask lots of questions, we are a helpful bunch here and want VERY much for you to succeed. https://youtu.be/mwtn_2d3_qs
