Archive.org. which hosts our files, has a page for Librivox at http://www.archive.org/details/librivoxaudio which features various lists of most downloaded items, new releases, recent reviews etc.

Also included is a list of "Staff Picks" which, we have just found out, we can choose ourselves. :D

I shall be updating the list of "Staff Picks" every week or two from now on. So, if you have any favourites you would like to be included, please post your suggestions here.

I should like to have a variety of fiction, non-fiction, other languages, classics and lesser-known works, and would be particularly interested in anything topical, so if you feel your suggestion would be especially appropriate for a particular time of year, please make a note of this in your post.

Ruth

For future use, you could go down Steampunk's Favorites (recommendations from lots of people).

I have added this one. I should warn that it isn't working quite as smoothly as I had hoped... it seems to take an age for the page to update, despite me flushing the WWW caches. :)

Hi Ruth - If there's still a Christmas slot, I recommend The Birds' Christmas Carol. I am a bit partial since I BC'd it, but it is a short sweet story with a wonderful message and some lovely singing.

Thank you! The Christmas Staff Picks are now full, and I am looking for next week's. They don't have to be topical, but I am going to include:

Old and New Year Ditties

So if anyone has any suggestions, fire away. I shall choose from the What are your Favourite Recordings? thread for some of them, too.

Ruth

Bah! etc etc.

I have just done Christmas picks, as it was easy, quick and seasonal. I'd like lots of varied suggestions for following weeks. :)

I'm currently enjoying A Lady's Visit to the Gold Diggings of Australia. It's a duet, read by annise and luciburg, catalogued Nov.22.

Really enjoyed The Wrong Box by Robert Louis Stevenson and Lloyd Osbourne http://librivox.org/the-wrong-box-by-ro ... -osbourne/ ... it made me giggle ... perhaps a humorous stories theme sometime?

Oh, in that case, add Pigs is Pigs http://librivox.org/short-story-collection-001/

The eyelashes have it (a too frightening thought :lol:). It may take a little while to replace the other version.
