May I claim 31 and 32? I've just finished recording 33 and 34 and would appreciate the continuity.

Clearly I made the right choice to claim this section. It's the first and possibly last time I get to read my LV name in a LV text! :mrgreen:

Thanks, Rita - loaded for the PL :)

Hey, do you listen to LibriVox, as well? You might find "Twenty Years at Hull House" by Jane Adams interesting. I was very interested at her interaction with Tolstoy.

Thanks for the recommendation Lynette. Yes, I do listen to Librivox (audiobooks from the library) and in fact, that's how I found out about volunteering! I would love to do it professionally.

I agree. I actually read the whole book put of general interest (I knew a bit in outline, but hadn't realised just how extreme so many people at the highest levels of government were).

And a bit of googling turns up some more on the author's life and his sad end:
