Ashleighjane's reading was on NPR.
They used a clip of her reading from the history of Lincoln on the show On Point that I hear on NPR in Maine, MPBN. They were discussing a new book on Lincoln. It was quite exciting to hear them say, "..and this is Ashleighjane from Librivox".
Here is the link.

Congratulations and Well done, Ashleighjane!!

Congratulations!

It looks like the show is 47 minutes long. Any idea where the recording is?

It is right at the beginning, around 1:39.
