I obviously do not have a wiki-account (what is better for the wiki :lol: ), so I have to take care of that there is enough work to do for somebody here ;)

Reader: moniaqua - Monika M. C.

Location: Bavaria
Accent: English: a little bit southern American with German-Bavarian accent (could somebody proof that on for example
http://librivox.org/for-dolly-who-does-not-learn-her-lessons-by-e-nesbit/ please? tx)
German: cannot hide that I live in Bavaria
Other Info: If I ever will read something French or Italian, it will have German accent - beware! :)
Sample: English: http://librivox.org/for-dolly-who-does-not-learn-her-lessons-by-e-nesbit/

German I will post when one of them is published in the catalog.

I've added you both.

It occurred to me as I was adding these two entries that all the reader links are now wrong in the table. I'll be working on changing them today.

ETA: That was quick.

Your reader page is http://librivox.org/reader/4064, Margaret. The URL you quote is the one for your own use, so that you can see what sections you have claimed, and their PL status.

Ruth :)

Karen - that last sample link is for an uncataloged project; it's in the uploader. So it shouldn't be included yet because the link will break as soon as the project is cataloged. ;)

Oops. Wasn't paying attention.

Barbara, would you like to use a sample from one of your completed works? I see on your reader page that there are two that have been cataloged. Otherwise, I'll just remove the link and you can ping me when this project is complete so I can add the proper link.
