Coffee Break Collection 26 -- It's a Small World by Various ( - ).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/coffee-break-collection-26-its-a-small-world-by-various/

This is the 26th Coffee Break Collection, in which Librivox readers select and read poems, fiction and non-fiction pieces of fifteen minutes' duration or less. The subject for this collection is "It's a Small World". Readers have interpreted this in their own way, so we have selections such as Asteroids, Small Country Houses of Today and stories for "small people", such as Jack and the Beanstalk. ( )

Teeny-Tiny

The volume falls outside our accepted range at 83.8 dB (needs to be 86-92 dB)

Otherwise PL OK -- seemed like quite a tongue-twister. Well read!

I've marked it PL OK but be aware that when you bump the volume that much, you also increase the background noise and may have to run noise cleaning (again).
