Praise received for toriasuncle (toriasuncle) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear toriasuncle,

I just finished your recording of "The Souls of Black Folk" and I just loved it. Thank you for making it!

I especially liked the musical parts and I thought you handled the tragic parts of his text with particular sensitivity.

My life is much enriched. Thank you again.
Best,
Hannah

Praise received for Hawden (Alan Chant) and Rory (Hazel Chant) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Thanks for your lovely reading of The Wouldbegoods, and thanks for choosing that book and for enjoying it like I do. I got my 9 yr old granddaughter onto The Treasure Seekers on Librivox, and was thrilled to see that the Wouldbegoods is there too, as I hadn’t read it. I’m happy she likes these old-fashioned books, at her age, in this age! I’ve started to listen to them myself, and I enjoy your reading of them so much

Praise received for realisticspeakers (realisticspeakers) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
A thank you to 'realisticspeakers' for reading parts of 'The Meditations of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus' (https://librivox.org/the-meditations-of-the-emperor-marcus-aurelius-antoninus-by-marcus-aurelius/). This is my favorite book of all time!

I even used a section of the audio in a track I created here... https://soundcloud.com/rob-harrand/the-inner-citadel?in=rob-harrand/sets/stuff-1

Thanks again,

Rob.

Praise received for ekaitz (ekaitz) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Just wanted to thank
ekaitz
for his perfect reading of Andrew Murray Humility, the Beauty of Holiness. I have listened over and over and over again since I discovered this foundational virtue we must have as believers. In the beginning as I listen I really appreciated the conviction and force with which you read this with. Now after listening for years i appreciate the listen-abilty of your reading, it hasn't grown old but is still fresh and impactful.
thank you for making it a pleasure to listen to 😀

Hello! The other day I finished listening to an extremely successful collection, for which I would like to thank everyone who made this possible:
Short Poetry Collection 208
https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-208-by-various/

It is not easy to separate the merits of the reader of a work from its author, especially in poetry, but everything here is absolutely at its best - both the selection of the texts themselves and their reading, dramatic and beautiful.
So many people of different ages, voices and reading styles gave me a lot of fun.
Thank you all and I wish you all the best! 💚💛🧡
Someone, please tell me - only readers or also BCs, MCs and PLers are notified about our praises here? 🦒

Praise received for sjmarky (Mark Nelson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Just finished bat wing, you have a great voice with a lot of character....thank you, Roger
and...
Dear Mr. Nelson,


I have listened to hundreds of librivox stories over the last eight or nine years and there are many, many readers. I will not speak negatively about any of them. After all, they all volunteer their own time to supply me with entertainment and I am very thankful for that. But I will sing the praise of readers who stand out. So, I would just like to say that you, sir, are the absolute best of all librivox readers. When I start listening to a librivox story, I am always thankful to hear your voice. I know the entire story from beginning to end, no matter how long it is, will be read with professionalism and will not have even the slightest hitch, hesitation or mistake. Every story you read is perfect. And they never sound edited. A three-hour-long story you read sounds as if it were recorded in one sitting. And it never sounds as if you are just reading the story. It always sounds like you are telling the story. There is a definite difference. So, if you are not already, I hope you will one day making a comfortable living with your voice.


Thanks again,


Tom
and...
Thank you Mr. Nelson. I have just finished listening to the First Lensman and enjoyed your reading of it very much.
I appreciate the substantial time spent and the care you gave in making this recording. It was very well done, very professional.

Thanks again,
H.
All of Mark's recordings!
Gosh.

"One Out of Ten" by J. Anthony Ferlaine, read by Juli Carter is something incredible! Exceptionally pleasant voice and interesting intonations. I listened to it several times, at intervals of several days. Unfortunately, Juli Carter's profile has been inactive since 2014, but I sincerely wish her all the best! :thumbs:
My praise for:
Short Science Fiction Collection 034
https://librivox.org/short-science-fiction-collection-034/

It was one of those books that started my acquaintance with LV and audiobooks in general - a pleasant acquaintance and, I hope, a long one.
Recently I listened to it again, discovering new things, intonations, meanings and more.
I find it an exceptionally successful selection and performance of works!
To everyone who made this possible, many thanks and all the best! 🍎

Thanks to everyone - readers, BC, PL, MC and others who worked on:

Hans Christian Andersen: Fairytales and Short Stories Volume 1, 1835 to 1842
https://librivox.org/hans-christian-andersen-fairytales-and-short-stories-volume-1-1835-to-1842-by-hans-christian-andersen/

It is pleasant to remember the tales of distant childhood and the events associated with them. Here, among other things, the readers have tried, imitating the singing, voices of animals and various characters. Thank you all for a dramatic, engaging reading full of joy & emotions! 🍇🍉🍏
