VOLUME 64 IS NOW CLOSED.

Many thanks to all those readers who participated in making this a truly superb collection of "listens!"

Volume 65 will be open soon. Look for it in the "Readers Wanted: Short Works (Poetry & Prose) thread.

Regards from the volunteer staff of the Nonfiction Collection: Jo, Craig, and myself, your Book Coordinator,

Sue

Craig, I listened & the "little tingling sound" was barely noticeable to me; let's call Betty's reading PL OK.

I thought of writing that it wasn't a distraction but didn't write it.

PLOK is fine with me.

:clap: good job guys! I'm new here and this is was my first recording, hopefully first of many. Thanks for the opportunity

So wait, Are there really 64 volumes of miscellaneous histories, political pamphlets, magazine articles?

Do you ever have people who go through them and try and put together a collection of a certain theme?

Hi Some_Old_Bird,
Yes, indeed there are 64 volumes! :) Jo started the SNF Collection, the first volume was cataloged on August 23, 2007. I have been BC since Volume 28 (cataloged March 2, 2013) and Craig has been DPL almost as long. I don't think anybody has ever attempted a "reverse collection" of the SNF, sorted by topic. However, there are many collections on LibriVox devoted to special interests, and there may be some cross-fertilization there. I think individual readers who contribute on a more-or-less regular basis to the SNF may use their recordings to explore themes of their own devising.

Just to make this clear: We do not allow the same recording to be used in more than one project.

So, if anybody would want to do such a collection for LV, all pieces would have to be redone (even by their original readers).
If you are looking for themed collections, there are the "Coffee Break Collections" with individual pieces not longer than 15 minutes.
Cheers,
Ava.

Intelligent discourse about reusing recordings moved to this thread:

Thank you. I appreciate moving this topic away from the Nonfiction Collection.
