But you are not the BC are you ? You seem to be answering a lot of the BC aimed questions?
If you think DRs are so much better than other forms, why not do something else so listeners have another one to listen to ? Just asking as it seems a bit odd to me.
Hmm ... well, there are multiple versions of lots of popular books on Librivox, and AFAIK there's no rule that says you can't do another one if you want to.
With so many of us forced to stay at home, we need diversions -- and rerecording a book we all love so much may be just the "comfort food" some of us need to keep our spirits up!
A DR, rather than a solo version, involves multiple people, which means we'll have other people to communicate with on a regular basis -- another good thing!
If you don't think it's appropriate to do another version, I understand and respect your right to your opinion. But let's not quarrel about it, OK? "Birds in their little nests agree," as "Beth" once said!
(Oh, and my husband just pointed out, "There's at least 100 different versions of Beethoven's 5th Symphony out there, but no one minds if someone decides to play it again!"
