Today, September 26 2015, is my 10-year Libri-versary. (Librivox-iversary?) Ten years! Hard to believe. Thanks for making this crazy project happen, everyone! :)

This morning I recorded three chapters of my current solo, Treasure Island. A great way to celebrate!

That you've been here since the beginning and are still having fun ten years later is the greatest endorsement of this place for the rest of us! Can't wait to hear that new version of my old favorite Treasure Island -- and looking forward to many more years of your recordings. Happy Anniversary!

P.S. -- May I just mention how much I love your signature quote?

P.S. And if you don't know xkcd, be sure to hover your mouse over the picture for some additional humour.
