The theme for January 2016 (wow, a new year again!)


I think you may want to buy a new calendar, or return the one you bought as it's an old one... According to my calendar, the new year will be 2017

Happy New Year everybody! :clap:

Sickness related a bit later than usual, but...
The staff has picked for January - thanks for your suggestions. Please have a look at this page for the current list. You can also check out our wiki page for a plain vanilla list that contains all the staff picks for this year.

The theme for next month will be

Love and Romance

suitable for Valentines Day. I am happy about all suggestions concerning, well, love and romance - there should be lots of books in our catalog that people don't know yet, right?

Especially welcome are suggestions of plays and poetry.

Thanks for your help! :wink:

Marriage of convenience between two 40-ish adults, which grows into more. I loved the story - not mushy, but a lot of fun.

On of my favorite LV recordings of all time:
https://librivox.org/cyrano-de-bergerac-by-edmond-rostand/
And another all time favorite that sort of makes fun of victorian love:
https://librivox.org/the-importance-of-being-earnest-by-oscar-wilde/
Thanks! :)

There are only 5 stories. I bet "unsuccessful marriages" would be more interesting to write about. :lol:

For the play, how about A Kiss for Cinderella - just finished. Really poignant love story . . . surprised me on many levels.
https://librivox.org/a-kiss-for-cinderella-by-j-m-barrie/

(maybe you will need to repeat this theme again, it looks like there is a lot to choose from and a lot of different directions you could take this! it will be tough to pick :) )

Drama: The Proposal by Anton Chekhov.

How much actual love is involved in this marriage proposal is a moot point... but it was a whole lot of fun.

I know the Chekhov piece - it was fun indeed, same as The Bear...

About Cinderella: I would really appreciate it if people could give a summary that tells me more than "This is a nice story called x". :roll: Makes staff-picking so much easier.
