You know you're addicted to LV when...

Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

...when the latest Avast voice informing you that your virus database has been updated reminds you of a certain LV reader every time you hear it. Rolling Eyes

Alright, spill. Which one? We need to know who is getting paid big bucks for the voice over.

Ha! I'm doing that right now! Leaving on Friday, need to remember the Mic or at least headphones so I can edit :roll:
I am leaving on a business trip in about 1 hour - and I have my microphone packed and ready..!! I hope to finish reading my current solo project this week, while staying at the Best Western. I do all my recordings in hotels during my business trips. :D

How do I know I am addicted? When I book a hotel for business travel, I ignore every single fancy hotel amenity available, and make only one simple request, "please place me in the highest floor possible, away from street traffic".

You somehow accidentally send yourself a PM reminder about chapters needing to be read (Was supposed to go to somebody else.........don't know how I managed that one) (Didn't even know that it was possible to send yourself a PM ~ you learn something new every day!)

(Then again maybe that is just a sign that you are tired and not that you are addicted to LV :D :D :D :D :D )

History of Religions nut that I am, I recently visited an old Catholic seminary here in my town. I was invited into the library, and as I gazed at shelf after shelf of seemingly ancient theology and history books, only one thought went through my mind:

"I bet all of these are public domain...."

That would be my thought exactly, if I ever managed to get in a time machine and travel back to earlier centuries. I'd love to be in a 19th or 18th century book shop, browsing through all the "new releases", buying as many first editions as possible.

If only I could get Charles Dickens to read the LibriVox disclaimer before one of his famous book readings... ;)

...irritating songs no longer stick in your head. You are instead plagued by the constant sound of your own voice in your head, practicing cadence and rhythm into even the most mundane and trivial of reading material - even as trivial as THIS VERY LIBRIVOX FORUM MESSAGE - AS I TYPE IT !!! .

It's driving me nuts, I tell you.

... you are the second most prolific poster.

You read about the Dead Sea Scrolls becoming available online, and your first thought is "Ooh, those are DEFINITELY before 1923"

Marilianus can read Biblical Hebrew and Greek. :) I don't know if he reads Aramaic.

I can also read Biblical Hebrew. Aramaic is quite similar, so it probably would not take too long to learn to pronounce it (and I could just check with the English translations to know what it is I'm saying).
