Praise received for RuthieG (Ruth Golding) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I want to say a big thanks to Ruth Golding for her brilliant input of emotions while reading - you truly are a joy to listen to. The books I enjoyed the most so far are:
1) Art of Money Getting (version 2) by P. T. Barnum
2) Mental Efficiency and Other Hints to Men and Women by Arnold Bennett
3) Self and Self-management: Essays about Existing by Arnold Bennett.

I hope you get to see this and it will be a bonus if you respond.

Again, thank you for being amazing and making me enjoy reading... or listening, I suppose.

If I may ask, would it be too much to request a book be graciously read by you? If it's not too much I recommend 'Awaken the Giant Within' by Anthony Robbins.


All of Ruth's recordings!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read these books aloud! Audiobooks save my life, and I love your voice. It’s awesome you do so many for free; it’s incredibly useful for school and for entertainment. I’ve been listening to your narrations/cameos during work, and they make it pass in a blast! I know if I ever want to listen to an audiobook during a long car ride, I’m going to check out the others you’ve done.



Thank you 😊

Praise received for pointysticks (Brenda Dayne) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear Brenda Dayne,

I just finished listening to your recording of The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. I loved your voice and the way you varied your intonation and expression depending on the mood or style of the chapters or sentences. You seem to have a dramatic background that enhanced the reading beautifully.

I am a doctoral student writing and researching turn of the twentieth century authors such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. I listen to the audio versions as I read the texts—it helps me absorb the words both visually and aurally.

It would be wonderful if you recorded more Wharton and/or James novels. I find it very difficult to find readers that have a fine sensitivity in their reading of the text like you do.

Thanks again,

Georgia

Praise received for gypsygirl (Karen Savage) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Just re-listening to Anne's House of Dreams after a LONG absence from the shores of P.E.I. and I want to thank you Karen for bringing all of the hopes, inspirations and lives in this magical book to life.

From a son of the House of Joseph,

Joseph
and...
Thankyou to Karen savage for your superb readings. I have a long morning and evening commute, which seem so much shorter when listening to your Jane Austen readings. The characterisations are subtle and charming, and enormously entertaining. I finished them all too quickly, but have enjoyed your other readings that I've listened to as well, and it's prompted me to meet new books and revisit old favourites that I'd forgotten about. So thank you.

Praise received for Kaffen (Mark F. Smith) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Prince Frederick, MD

I simply wanted to thank Mr. Smith for his excellent reading of Robinson Crusoe (the first story).

It was well-paced and engaging, despite the obvious challenges of reading that text fluidly. I found the rendition of the overtly Christian sections especially excellent (Hard to execute in today’s day and age without irony!) Well-done. I look forward to finding and listen to more of your work.

Thank you!

Yours in Christ,

Praise received for johng (John Greenman) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Hi,
Please can you pass on my thanks to John Greenman for his rendition of Uncle Tom's Cabin. It is a masterful work, and his narration really brought it alive and helped me "feel" the poignancy and beauty of the story.
Regards,
Anton

Thank you Deana for the wonderful reading of Gwendolen's part in The Importance of Being Earnest! Your voice was a delight to listen to, and you did an amazing job at bringing the character to life! I really wish there were more audibooks recorded by you!
