Hi all, Danny here, based in Los Angeles, CA.

I'm going to start proof-listening, and recording myself reading sooner than later. What's a good goal to have per volunteer recorder per year?

I'm a fan of:
speculative fiction, sci-fi, non-fiction biography, a little poetry, comedy, and computers/tech, movies.

See ya around!

Welcome Danny. Got no advice about goals, just do what seems fun to do and keep expanding the things you try. Your first goal of course is to do your 1 minute test which is to be sure your technical specs match what we use here. After that, explore our forums. Here is a welcome video I've made here. https://youtu.be/mwtn_2d3_qs

Hi Danny!
We don't have any goals for recording. We appreciate all. Some folks are able to help out a couple of times and year and others are here every day. It's all up to you. The only real requirements are 1) be nice, and 2) have fun!
