(App-Specific Q, Maybe) Disappearing Audiobook?

Hello,

So a while back, (like, maybe two years ago) I downloaded a certain edition of "Don Quijote de la Mancha" to my iPhone from the LibriVox app. I hadn't listened to it in a while, and recently got back into it. I have been floored by the narrator's work, and wanted to come to the forum to give him a big ¡Gracias!

BUT

I can't find the book or its reader in the LibriVox search feature! At first I thought maybe it just wasn't tagged as being "in Spanish", which it is, but removing that search criterion didn't help.

It seems to have disappeared from LibriVox, but an internet search revealed this result: https://librivox.bookdesign.biz/search.jsp?search=reader%3Acervantes which seems to be from a different website that catalogs LibriVox books.

The specific book I downloaded is the first result on that page, supposedly from a reader by the name of "cervantes". :help:

How do I find this book's reader to thank him? haha :thumbs:

¡Gracias!
Nate

The "LibriVox" app isn't ours, although it uses the same name. We don't have any official app, nor support/control any of them.

It has our books but also has books from other sources.

So you'll probably need to contact the app developers or at least use the app as a starting point to find the narrator of that audiobook, since as you say, it's not one of ours. :)

Ah!!

Thank you!!! :clap:

I did not realize the app was not official. That explains everything.

I will further investigate the internet for clues.

¡Muchas gracias!
