Kia ora e te whānau & hello from Aotearoa New Zealand.
My name is Tim, and I am an ex-radio-show host who collects antiquated (and other) books.
I'm vision impaired, and I greatly appreciate the work done by readers and other volunteers here at Librivox.
Having newfound time on my hands (and a recording setup), I thought I'd give reading a go.
For the juicy parts, here's a non-exhaustive list of my antiquated books that could be read. Please message me if anything interests you.
The subjects: religion, spiritualism, mysticism, occult, Eastern philosophy arts and stories, etc.

There's also plenty of Gutenberg on my kindle.
Happy to talk books or recording gear setups, etc. Don't worry, I'm following the list of things to do fist, including the test recording.
Anyway, hope you are all fine!
