Michael:

The Arraignment is PL-OK! Nicely done! (The intro really sets the piece off well! Thanks for the extra work!)

Thanks also for all your help.

Hello, Philip! Quite a different story that the previous ones!
It's PL OK!

Don't worry about any authors that can't be added. I'll fill in the blanks at cataloguing.

Hi Folks,

This is my first contribution to a Christmas collection in a while, but I ran across this little story while shopping for children's books and thought it would make a good LibriVox read. Hope you agree.

Language: English

Duration: 10:15

Happy holidays!

Winston:

Your reading is PL-OK! Many thanks.

(If you are interested, the Hollow Tree and Deep Woods Book is already in the Librivox collection)

Always good to hear from my home turf--I was born in Berkeley.

Have a joyous holiday season.

Ok...here is one in Spanish. I'm told by friends in Central America that this is not "strictly" a Christmas poem, but it is frequently read at this time of year.

Many thanks, Rapunzelina! (I hope they're merciful). :)

Just a quick note....I have been unable to enter author's names for sections 17 (Geoffrey Smith), 20 (James Hain Friswell, 1825-1878), and 21 (Octavian Goga 1881-1938). The others are all ok.

I hope that everyone who wanted to will have time to contribute to this collection.

Philip
