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. :)

Once listened to, most discs go to an old folks home but many have gone to passengers.
Well, I'm late again, but I'm old, so I'm slow - that's my excuse and I LIKE it! - This is great Roger... I'm burning The Count of Monte Cristo right now and will listen to it... but the house is getting full of stash - yarn, fibers for spinning, chocolate, I'm thinking I don't need an audiobook cd stash to add to it... since I am close to 2 large military installations we have a large veterans rest home here, they would be the perfect place to pass on my cds to... of course, I will not forget to tell the staff where I downloaded the files from either... thank you for such a great suggestion...

This works out as just over 31 days of listening catalogued in 31 days

So if I started listening to everything now and didn't sleep I would still never catch up, in fact I would just get further and further behind

Provided he is interested in a number of genres, the appreciative truck driver who listens 9 hours a day will never run out. :D

So, all we gotta do is each of us tell 1 other person and get them reading, and if each of them tell 1 other person, and each of THEM tell 1 other person... whew... how long would it be before the whole world is reading and listening to librivox... soon everyone will know the disclaimer... "this is a librivox recording..." I like it! :clap:

Another way to look at the monthly stats for books cataloged:

We have cataloged an average of 78 books per month this year so far --- as compared to 74 books per month last year. :)

If we do 78 for the last 4 months of 2009, that will put us just shy of 3000 by the end of the year... 78 x 4 = 312; 2625 + 312 = 2937.... which means we will hit 3000 a month earlier than previously projected... not bad... way to go Librivox volunteers! give yourselves a raise... how about we double your salaries??? Yes, that sounds good... for next year everybody gets double what you were making this year! :lol:
