I liked it too :thumbs:
As you said it's very edifying to see how great a variety of readers we have- I didn't realize we even have octagenarians onboard. Kudos to them :thumbs:
Oh, and I also liked it when someone (now, who was it? :hmm: ) mentioned "greenhorn". I immediately thought back to "Winnetou" :mrgreen:

Thank you Ruth and all the other contributors. I especially love the song, but finding out what has been going on behind the scenes was interesting and useful. A very excellent podcast.

So little space, so much to say.

Ruth - thank you so much for the insightful look into Librivox!! I feel like I have a better understanding of... well, lots of things now, haha. Very informative and it made me tear up some, for some reason. It's all just so touching, this big THING that is Librivox. I blame hormones. ;)


I've had a death in the family and won't be around Librivox much for the next while. I'll be back ... when I'm back. I appreciate your patience in the meanwhile. :)
