Break out your best celebratory smilies!

It was a team effort! We could never have reached 10,000 without every single project from 1 to 9999! Thanks to everyone who has worked to hard the last 6 weeks, and the last 11 years to make LibriVox such a success.

I knew I wouldn't see it happen - just a few hours too early for me :cry: ... But this is not about me anyway.


We did it! :thumbs:

Congratulations everybody! :clap: :clap:

Repeating what MaryAnn said above:

Thank you so much everybody who made this happen, not just in the last 6 weeks, but in the last 11 years!
LibriVox wouldn't be what it is today without every single reader, every single proof listener, every single BC and MC - and of course, every single listener! Every section counts!


Let's keep reading - after all, the 20th anniversary is approaching! :wink:
Cheers, Ava.

Ava, this may not be "about you", and is certainly a team effort... But you were the instigator of the cleanup and chief cheerleader :clap:

Seems like reaching 20,000 for our 20th anniversary is a reasonable goal! :)
