48511 sections complete?
Taking an average of 20 seconds,
that's 970220 secs or 11 days of 'the disclaimer'.

Promise I'm not starting the old argument.
Just an observation from an anorak.

Or under 6 mins per contributor to the project. :D

Nah... not an average of 20 seconds. Many poetry recordings have only "This recording is in the public domain" and newer solo recordings have "This Librivox recording is in the public domain" for all but the first chapter. A mere few seconds.

That's only a few days off 1 and a half years.

When did we hit one year?

And when do people think we'll hit 2?

Apologies for not checking this out better.
Didn't mean it as a criticism by the way, fully accept the need for the disclaimer.
Just saw it as an interesting stat, if likely to stir up a much stirred hornets nest.

Another personal stat.
All I have listened to so far burned onto over 1400 cds.
Wonder how many it would take for the whole catalogue.
Must invest in that ipod soon.

Good lord! :shock:

It doesn't have to be an ipod. My little MP3 player only cost me 15 quid from play.com.

I hope you tell your passengers about Librivox. ;)

I do indeed Ruth.
Always have the current book in the cd player and often turn it on to give people a sample.
Usually get very positive feedback.
I know a couple of passengers regularly use LV now.
Once listened to, most discs go to an old folks home but many have gone to passengers.

We're there!

Number of completed projects 2500

And the honor goes to...

Triplanetary by E.E. "Doc" Smith, read by Kaffen
PL'd by anna, MC'd by aradlaw

Congratulations to Kaffen et al for #2500, and to everyone who contributed to #1-2499 (without whom there would be no 2500)!

So... we hit #2000 around Dec. 31 of last year. At this rate we should be on the lookout for #3000 next February. :)
