The Lincoln Story book is on its way to Archive so that could be a good one for this week - its a collection of anecdotes about Lincoln .

Thank you. I have been a bit remiss the last couple of weeks, but will do another selection including Lincoln as soon as it's up. I will also spotlight it for a week or two. :)

I absolutely adored the collab of Wilkie Collins's Lady in White - a dramatic reading: http://librivox.org/the-woman-in-white-by-wilkie-collins/ (catalogued in November).

Thanks, Gesine. I will include that too. I did a lot of editing on it and really enjoyed it.

Pi day is here again, this year - perhaps our pi project of last year is a good one for the Staff Picks today?

Kristine and her team just finished Boccaccio's Decameron, with each reader reading the 10 parts for each character and one narrator spliced in throughout. It isn't seasonal or anything, but might it make a good pick? It's high quality reading.

Shakespeare was born around April 23 (445 years ago), baptized on April 26 and died on April 23. Some Shakespeare in the Staff Picks !

I will do it today if I can. I can't get archive.org to load at all at the moment. :(

Indeed, I quite agree! It was in the Staff Picks at the beginning of January and doubtless will be again. :)

Well Ruth - I'm sure you'd never suggest it yourself but I'm afraid The Magic World by Nesbit, read by - yes, by you - needs to be a Staff Pick. http://librivox.org/the-magic-world-by-e-nesbit/ Such a wonderful reading and the stories simply delightful - I shudder to think that anyone would miss it.
