Hello,
I have listened to Mark Smith of Simpsonville SC read Sherlock Holmes Adventure stories.. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mark describe the adventure stories .. his engaging tone and clear and crisp pronunciation makes for a truly enthralling experience, we are driving to Mumbai tomorrow and my younger son specifically asked for Mark's recordings to make our journey shorter !

I cannot thank him enough for the wonderful service he has performed for all of us readers !

Regards,

Praise received for ChrisMS (Christopher Smith) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I am almost done listening to the entire series of audio files for The
History of the Reformation of the 16th Century, the reader being
Christopher Smith. His reading is superb, with enough expression but not
too much. Listening to this is wonderful recreation, so much better
than television could ever be, especially since I'm in my upper 70's
and have little stamina.

Please pass on a huge Thank you to Christopher Smith for reading several Andrew Murray books. I came across this author about a year ago on librivox and I have been so immensely challenged and encouraged by the truths expounded in his books. I keep going back to A. Murray's books for meditation and life.
Thank you for taking the time to share on librivox.

Sincerely,
All of Christopher's recordings!

Praise received for Alondra (Sandra Cullum) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Hello,

I’d like to thank you for your excellent and hugely enjoyable reading of “John Thorndyke’s Cases” which I’ve just finished. Now that I’ve reached 70, I find that my eyes tire quickly and I use talking books a lot for entertainment. I think it’s brilliant that you and so many others are willing to give up your time to perform such a valuable service.

Thank you again, and very best wishes for Christmas and 2020.

Regards,

Douglas

Praise received for Mermaid (Mil Nicholson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Thank you for the terrific reading of Dickens’ “Bleak House” (https://librivox.org/bleak-house-by-charles-dickens-2/)! I listen to an hour’s worth of chapters each time I walk my dog, and when a chapter is interrupted I simply start from the beginning again. I’ll probably listen to the whole thing from the beginning when I reach the end. You keep all the characters well differentiated… it’s a great pleasure.

Praise received for RuthieG (Ruth Golding) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear Ms. Goldberg,

You did a marvelous reading of "Diary of a dead officer," but, golly, it was disturbing. I am glad that I now know more about WW I, but it's just so sad to hear about the useless suffering and death of the soldiers, and the idiocy of the military brass.

My mother (b. 1914), said that one of her uncles came back from WW I with trench foot, was thereafter sickly, and died in his early 20s.

After that book I listened to your rendition of the P.T. Barnum book - an interesting curiosity, and read with great expression. He is clearly speaking almost exclusively to men, but then, those were the days.

Thank you for your many hours of work with LibriVox.

This is the joy of Librivox: you have some readers who are just flat-out marvelous – either they’re well suited to certain authors or they can read ANYTHING and make it intelligible and engaging. One of this sort is Ruth Golding, who I just discovered with “The Story of Electricity” by Munro. I’m now exploring other works she has read. Who cannot admire her flawless pronunciation and her steady, even tone, chapter after chapter? Eminently listenable, this woman is gifted. I will now discover new authors and read (listen to) books I’d never have considered before, simply because she’s the reader. Thank you, Ms. Golding! And thank you Librivox.

All of Ruth's recordings!

Praise received for kathrinee (Kathrine Engan) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear Ms. Engan,

I want to send a note of gratitude for your LibriVox reading of Hamsun’s Pan. I’ve read the novel a few times over the years and just recently returned to it. But instead of reading it this time, I came upon your recording and decided to try a listen. I was hooked within moments. I found your recording utterly delightful. Your reading conveys the work’s countless subtleties, its dark fever, its heartache and humor, its beauty and lyricism. As I listened I felt as if I could hear Glahn and Edwarda and all the rest there beside me, as if I was witnessing these people entangle themselves in each other’s lives (and then try to disentangle themselves all the same). How wonderful!

I finished listening early this morning, but I still hear it. Thank you.

My best to you and your projects going forward.

Sincerely,

Michael
