Coffee Break Collection 13 - Weather - ( - 0).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/coffee-break-collection-13-weather-by-various/
This is the thirteenth collection of our "coffee break" series, involving public domain works that are between 3 and 15 minutes in length. These are great for study breaks, commutes, workouts, or any time you'd like to hear a whole story and only have a few minutes to devote to listening. The theme for this collection is "The Weather", where the weather conditions are significant. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry... this selection contains them all. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. There is no need to state your intention to record a story.
      Just choose a Public Domain short story (under 15 minutes) in English and when you have recorded it, post it here.

      This collection will remain open until we have 15 submissions.
      New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

Thank you!
This was published 1918, so is PD in the U.S. Sassoon lived to a ripe old age, so isn't PD in Europe.
