Coffee Break Collection 16 -- Crime by Various ( - ).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/coffee-break-collection-16-crime-by-various/



This is the sixteenth collection of our "coffee break" series, involving public domain works that are between about 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 "Crime", where crime or criminals are significant. Librivox readers have chosen a combination of social commentaries, newspaper reports of true crimes and criminals, letters, fictional accounts of the life of the criminal and short 'whodunnit' mysteries. ( Lynne Thompson)
  • There is no need to pre-claim. Any story, essay or poem in the Public Domain that fits the criteria for this collection is acceptable.

    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Lynnet:

In going to post a reading I find that there is no link to the uploader showing? Also, in the instructions for the file naming there are two different examples given.

Good place to look for stories and non-fic.

I recorded a Minute Mystery, but it clocks in at about 2:30. Is that okay?

Many thanks,
