Hello! My name is Kayla Furrow. I love reading but don't always have much time to read actual paper books. I discovered Librivox a while ago and listen to a book here and there. After recently listening to This Side of Paradise read by Mark Smith, I decided I would look into volunteering! I am very excited to be here! I think I will start with the "proofing" of recorded readings before I delve into trying to record some myself.

I live in Central Virginia. I am the only female home inspector in my area! I really love what I do, but I am also considering going to grad school in the next few years. I have my Bachelor of Science in Psychology but I would like to see myself through to a PhD. For leisure, I spend time with my friends or watching TV shows or reading, though I don't get too much leisure time with owning my own inspection business.

I can't wait to see where this new venture takes me!

Hello, Kayla, and welcome to LibriVox. I'm sorry about the long delay in answering your post.

Phil has made a video to introduce new members to LibriVox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKLWam9cfVo&t=74s

And you can always get help in the Need Help subforum, further down the main page of the forum.

Proof listening (as a "PL" or "DPL", a "dedicated proof listener", who takes on all the proof-listening for a whole project) is a great way to learn how the system works ... and it gives you an insight into the amount of work that the reader has to put into it. We always need more PLers.

It's an involving hobby; I hope you'll enjoy it.
