Section 10: https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/letters_10_sevigne_128kb.mp3 M:S 24:40 I don't know how people unacquainted with history would be able to follow these extracts! I am grateful to have such an historically informed PL! But were you aware the the Count de Guiche was the most glittering...

Re: Hello, I'm Michael

Hi Michael,

You've certainly come to the right place for honing your reading out loud skills (and having fun doing it).

I see that your test was OKed and that you are au fait with things technical. You will have noticed that there's a Help forum for any questions you might have.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Barbara, Section 20 is up: 13:40 https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/cavour_20_martinengo-cesaresco_128kb.mp3 My best, Pam PL OK. And I am confused. Somewhere during my Librivox career I thought I learnt that Napoleon had opened the route to Italy along the coast by building the corniche. So ...

Re: [Solo] The Letters of Madame de Sévigné by Marie de Rabutin-Chantal - dl

Hi Barbara, Thank you for the additional notes. Most illuminating. We hear from Port Royal and from Arnaud, the leader of that hotbed of Jansenism. At 10:23, I hear omission of "Letter 27," not critical, but you do read off the letter heads. My best, Pam Merci, Pam. The more of these letters I read...

Section 9: https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/letters_09_sevigne_128kb.mp3 M:S 27:40 It seems to me that this volume contains very detailed footnotes exactly as they appear in the full text of the letters (3 volume’s worth) and also that the footnotes that are needed for context in these selected ...

Re: Hello!

I have been a writer all my life. but I've also fallen in love with the idea of being a narrator. My voice has been described as soothing and relaxing. I am here to volunteer with voice work and with proofing. I have a home studio. Good that you love the idea of narrating - you should fit right in....

Hi all, I’m J. Denning and just starting off with LibriVox. I think the work you all do is great and am hoping to learn from the ground up. I’m a retired English teacher, so naturally I’m a bookworm!

Hi Pam, Section 8 https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/letters_08_sevigne_128kb.mp3 M:S 21:54 This section needs footnotes! And, BTW, the date seems to be wrong in the text!
