Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Hi! As promised, I have now included some more milestones, besides the ones, mentioned earlier. I have tried to reword the ones with comments in earlier posts. These milestones are intended to complete the history in the librivox wiki, now stopping at February 2010. I am sure some other relevant mil...

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Hi!, Thank you for all these suggestions. I think by looking at the thread librivox statistics I might also put the second highest number of audiobooks released in a month. I have not tried to trace it back right now, but it is mentioned recently there. I am now thinking of other possible milestones...

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Hi! I think the entry regarding the month of March 2021 could be something like: March, 31, 2021 during this March LibriVox released 186 audiobooks, the highest number in a single month. This is one of the yearly months dedicated to the "clean up" or concentrating efforts to finish books that were l...

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Thank you Peter Why, I think that is a good idea. To add one entry with the cleaning up month with the highest number of audiobooks finished. May be it was last March 2021? Another entry I think it should be included is the calendar year with the highest number of audiobooks produced. Wasnt'it 2020?...

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

Hi! Just to mention that the brief history of LibriVox at the wiki stops at 2010, now 11 years ago. I think since then quite a number of milestones have been reached. Perhaps it would be a good idea to update it regarding the following years. I do not have access to the wiki, I am just a cover maker...
