Hello everyone! I'm not sure what to say as I'll talk about myself too much but here it goes. My name is Crystal and I live in the midwest Missouri specifically or as I like to call it Misery. I just got accepted on the site and I am a bit excited. A stumbled across this website accidentally while looking for a book. But I have a lot to reading to do for what my acceptance email had indicated. Hopefully I'll be able to volunteer to read often. I live out in the country so it's pretty hard to volunteer for my community being unable to drive so I'm very excited and hopefully I will do a good enough job when I start getting into the volunteer process. I'm always open to any kind of suggestions especially once I get started I am very open for any kind of recommendations or suggestions for improvement. It was nice to meet everyone and hopefully I'll be able to reading sooner than I think. I hope everyone's day was wonderful.

Hello, Crystal, and welcome to Librivox!

It's great to have you here. You'll find this is a friendly community.

As you see, there's a lot going on all the time so I'd say browse around the forums to see what kinds of projects there are, and how things work.

When you are ready, submit a one-minute recording test to see that you get the technical specifications right. After that's OK you'll be good to go and start recording. A recommendation is to start small by claiming a section in a collaborative work. Then, you can move on to recording solo works. The sky's the limit! :D

As I've said, this is a friendly place. If you have any questions, just ask in the forums and other members will respond.

I'm a proof -listener and fairly new in the community.

Just one warning: Librivox is awfully addictive! :D I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time here.

Happy recording!
