I have just catalogued my solo as project #10018!

This challenge will be closed on August 9th, midnight (or on our anniversary: August 10th 00:01), that leaves us about 17 hours to go!

Endspurt, ladies and gents! :thumbs:
Cheers,
Ava.

Well done everyone! (And I am secretly delighted to be a part of project 10,000). When the challenge started I wasn't sure we could make it. And we completely smashed it!
So little space, so much to say.

I stole this idea and posted an image in the Facebook group.

Okay, so here are the statistics for our latest, most successful cleanup month:

In July we have completed 155 projects, that's the highest completed project count ever! :thumbs:
In August we have completed an additional 62 projects within the first 9 days, which is probably a record itself! :9:
And then there are 6 more projects in validation, which means that we have finished them on time, it's just that archive does not want to be cooperative at the moment. :wink:

That means, in total we have finished, from July 1st to August 9th the amazing number of 223 projects, that's 5.575 completed projects every single day! 8-)

Of these projects, 22 were in languages other than English (most of them in Spanish, interestingly); 88 were read by a solo reader, and we even completed 7 dramatic works in the last 40 days! :thumbs:

Right now, our completed projects count says we have
10022 LibriVox audiobooks
ready for download! :clap:

But we're not stopping there, are we? :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.
