Praise received for gloriana (Elizabeth Klett) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Elizabeth,

Having already listened to every Jane Austen that you have read for Librivox, I am looking forward today to begin listening to House of Mirth.

You read beautifully. I work with my hands, and often the work can be quite boring. When I have a good book to listen to, the hours rush by and I am eager to get to work again the next morning. Your reading makes my workdays a joy.

Thank you for the many hours you have given to record these works. I am happy to have the good luck to want to hear the books you want to read.

With sincere gratitude,

Zuzana

Praise received for neustar (Bob Neufeld) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Mr . Neufeld,

I cannot overstate how much I appreciate the quality of your audio recordings. I currently instruct students in a correctional setting. My students range from late teens to well into their sixties. Their reading abilities and academic abilities vary widely. Your nuanced and well-paced recordings have become a staple in my classic literature classes. The advanced readers sit back and learn about how to structure the pace and pauses of their own reading, while my more challenged student follow along in their texts as you read. So many of these latter students say your recordings make all the difference to their understanding of the story. I personally listen to your selections prior to class while driving to work. You have made my commute much more enjoyable. Please keep recording. Whenever I visit the Libivox site for audio books, I look for you name first. Thanks again for helping me help those who need education so desperately.

Praise received for psuke (Psuke Bariah) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Please convey thanks to the reader:
Psuke Bariah

For Psmith, Journalist

You have a such a euphonious voice that I cannot resist myself from listening you again and again. The rendition of different characters with some distinctive features made the reading vivid, animated (that's the best skill to have for a reader). The pronunciation to letter "T" is prominent (sign of a rich accent☺). You have a natural sence of enticement in your voice that lure a reader (😂 I mean the lessener). I extend my gratitude for your endeavour and wish you a prosperous life. Please do some more books.By the way, it will be my eternal desire to meet you oneday (I can assure you that😙).

Thank you.

Praise received for mom_of_nine (Theresa L. Downey) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Hello, Ms Downey!

Thanks for your lovely reading of "Stepping Heavenward", by Elisabeth Prentiss. It is a true classic that I read annually and you have done a great service in reading it for Librivox.

I especially enjoy listening to your voice and your reading cadence is an exceptional match for this book and storyline.

If you have an online channel that I can follow or have other readings elsewhere, let me know. Thank you!

Warmly,
Kris

All of Theresa's recordings!

Thank you, Kris, for your encouraging note! Reading that story was a labor of love. I have been hoping to someday finish the Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss, but that project has been on the back burner for a few years. I appreciate you reaching out!

Blessings! Theresa
