I'm so glad you've launched this project. I've always wanted to get to it myself, but as a group project, now it will get done.

Thank you! Section 1 is PL OK. I thought it was well read, nice pace, very articulate.
Would you like to read another? Or have you had enough of TB's adventures for the time being?

We'd love to have you join this project.

We strongly suggest that all readers complete a 1 minute test. It's not an audition, but a check that your technical settings meet our requirements.

Info here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

And when completed, you upload the test file here: viewforum.php?f=21
