It seems this particular recording session was ill-fated right from the start... https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/troublegettingstarted_hobbit.mp3
Between being a full-time college student and working 20+ hours per week, I'm not able to be involved at LV these days, but I remain a loyal fan and look forward to a triumphant return sometime in the (probably distant) future.

When somebody compiles a book of phrases authors aren't allowed to use for the sake of audiobook narrators, I believe the phrase "from which she suspended" should be included.

I love this one. :) Hehe, you're funny.

Also with the one from Peter Pan, I had know idea how much you sacrificed in order to make this book...goodness with tongue twisters like that. :D

Having heard your attempts, I have to agree! Sounded vaguely like "seashells she sells..."!

For my own part, I would like to ban the phrase "primary parameters". For a few moments there, I thought I was doing "Peter Piper"!

For some reason I can't record tonight......WARNING - Very loud noises, I don't recommend headphones :-) https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/fourthofjuly.mp3

It wasn't even dark when I recorded this --- there are a lot more going off now, though not all as close by.

Let us add the phrases "first to draw blood" (https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/firsttodrawblood_hobbit.mp3) and "that they brought with them" (https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/thattheybroughtwiththem_hobbit.mp3; this one really shouldn't have been that hard) to the banned phrases list.

I am ashamed of my dirty mind, but this phrase didn't translate from the page to my brain quite the way J.M. Barrie intended, and I couldn't stop laughing. https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/shameonme_hobbit.mp3

ETA: From the same session - my dad had to come into the room where he knew I was recording and thought he might as well make ridiculous noises since he was interrupting me anyway. :roll: https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/interruptingdad_hobbit.mp3

Yup, those pesky syllables just won't stay in the right order :roll:

And here's mine. Polish doesn't distingush between long and short vowels, so any English fragment when these alternate in rapid succession is likely to cause me trouble. Example:

Having trouble getting started today... first the disclaimer (I should DEFINITELY not be making mistakes with that by now!) and then the chapter title.
