Praise received for kenmorefield (Kenneth R. Morefield) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Kenneth,

I wanted to thank you for your excellent reading of David Elginbrod by George MacDonald. It is wonderful to be able to listen to this book that I have read several times but don't have time to read anymore because of the demands of work. So I listen during drives and lunchtime walks. The availability of this reading has helped erase the feeling I've had that the memory of this author is on the point of disappearing altogether. Obviously you appreciate him too, and there must be many others. Thank you for helping keep his memory and works alive.

Blessings,
Bill
Spokane, WA

All of Kenneth's recordings!

Kyle,
Thank you for your reading of A Christmas Carol. I was working on Christmas presents and turned your recording on. You were wonderful-all the different voicing was perfect! I found other books you have read and I have them on a list to listen to as well.
Keep up the good work!

Vorrei ringraziare Riccardo Fasol

Sto ascoltando il fu Mattia pascal letto da lui e l ascolto è reso meraviglioso dall abilità del lettore che rende quasi reali le scene che racconta.

Grazie ?

Praise received for LauraKoskinen (Laura Koskinen) from our 'Thank a reader' feature regarding her recording in the group project Can You Forgive Her?:

Hi,

Your rendition of Lady Glencora, Alice, and Mr. Palliser were marvelous.

I am sure Glencora sounded in real life exactly as you portrayed.

Thank you so much for your work!

Praise received for piranesi (Geroge Snow) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Mr. Snow:

My team and I at Florida State University wanted to thank you for your outstanding reading of "The Raven" on LibriVox! Your reading of "The Raven" in the Short Poetry Collection 112 https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-112-by-various/ is excellent, and we were incredibly excited to find it on LibriVox. My team and I create free, original, online interactive tutorials for students to learn and practice skills and concepts that are aligned to our state standards. Your recording of "The Raven" is now featured in a two-part English Language Arts tutorial where students learn how to analyze word choices, examine word meanings and subtle differences in word meanings, determine the connotations of words, and analyze the impact of specific word choices on the meaning of the poem. Although we have several excellent in-house narrators, when possible, we really like to find outside narrators to read the texts or text excerpts we feature in English Language Arts tutorials to provide variety in our audio and increase engagement for students. Your reading of "The Raven" was exactly what we were looking for. We loved your articulation and pacing, and we loved your intensity. As the speaker in the poem grew nervous, or curious, or hopeful, or more frantic and angry, your reading of the narration did the same. Thank you so much for the work you put into your excellent recording and for making it available for everyone to enjoy! We know how much work can go into creating a great audio recording, and we appreciate your hard work. We hope that you will create more recordings of other texts for LibriVox in the future.

Praise received for cobalt100 (Caden Vaughn Clegg) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Mr. Clegg:

My team and I at Florida State University wanted to thank you for your outstanding reading of Anthem on LibriVox! Your reading of Anthem https://librivox.org/anthem-version-2-by-ayn-rand/ is excellent, and we were incredibly excited to find it on LibriVox. My team and I create free, original, online interactive tutorials for students to learn and practice skills and concepts that are aligned to our state standards. Your recording of Anthem is now featured in a two-part English Language Arts tutorial where students learn how to use textual details and connotative meanings of words to determine a narrator's tone and analyze the impact of word choices on the meaning and tone of a text. Although we have several excellent in-house narrators, when possible, we really like to find outside narrators to read the texts or text excerpts we feature in English Language Arts tutorials to provide variety in our audio and increase engagement for students. Your reading of Anthem was exactly what we were looking for. We loved your articulation and pacing, and we loved your emphasis on certain word choices to help readers connect with the narrator's feelings and changing tone. When we imagined what Equality 7-2521 might sound like if his character were brought to life, your reading nailed just what we had envisioned!

Thank you so much for the work you put into your excellent recording and for making it available for everyone to enjoy! We know how much work can go into creating a great audio recording, and we appreciate your hard work. We hope that you will create more recordings of other texts for LibriVox in the future.

Praise received for ahab (Stewart Wills) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Stewart

this is a very quick note to say thank you very much indeed for your Librivox recording of Moby Dick. I have tried to read this gargantuan work on numerous occasions and found it almost impossible to progress past the first chapter but I found your Librivox version thoroughly engaging and, not only did I make it to the end, I now number Moby Dick amongst my favourite books!

So thank you again for bringing Ahab and the crew of the Pequod to life, your hard work is very much appreciated.

very best wishes

PHIL

All of Stewart's recordings!

Praise received for simonevers (Simon Evers) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

regarding his readings of Inner Shrine and The Ghost
Dear Simon,
Thank you, yet again, for being such a comforting presence in my life. I often listen to your recordings several times over to appreciate in depth the talent both of the writer and the reader.
I love to hear your voice, which suggests to me all the qualities I value most: intelligence, generosity, self-discipline, understanding, and warmth; with a wonderful range of vocal expression.
Out here, off-grid, and out of range of both Wi-FI and telephone signal relays, it is particularly pleasant to listen to another human voice. When, as now, the evenings are drawing in and seasonal health problems limit my activities, your work is especially precious to me. I wonder if you can begin to appreciate what a gift you have made to literally millions of people like myself.
I wish there were some way I could reciprocate, but I try to do so in other ways, by sharing the limited talents I have myself with other members of local and world'-wide communities.
I am only online once a week when a friend takes me to where I can access Internet to post my blogs, do some research and counselling, and download another talking book. My PC speed is appallingly slow and it takes hours to download a single talking book, but they have become a real luxury. I also prefer the elegance and moral values of many older authors, although some can be terrifying when they address the future and the traceable origins of the New World Order.
I know little about you, not even your age, but I imagine you as a much-loved husband and father, and I envisage a beautiful home overlooking the sea, as sometimes I hear seagulls on your sound tracks.
I wish you and yours every good thing, as I do also for the other readers on LIbrivox. But I take the liberty of writing to you again as you are the only one who has ever replied, and your work has given me years of comfort and pleasure.. Thank you again,
sylvie
and...
I love all your readings, wonderfully done, and I love the seagulls squawking in the background. :D I have not been to our coast in years and hearing the seagulls in your readings is so pleasurable.
All of Simon's recordings!
Ann
