You know how LV has First Chapter Collections; so why don’t we also do a Last Chapter Collection?

I think that has been suggested before. :lol:

Problem with last chapters is that it's either a massive spoiler or a wrapup of all the loose ends created during the story involving characters you have never heard of and therefore couldn't care less about.

It may be fun to record, but I'm not sure it's fun to listen to and/or enticing people to read the rest of the book (as first chapters definitely are).
Cheers, Ava.

i was one of the librivoxers, who wanted something like this.
i think, it was one of the suggestions of kevin?

but i decided against starting it, because...
i am not a spoiler person at all, but i don't want to ruin it for others.

on the other hand, with a title saying last chapter collection, we should catch the people who are used to read the last pages of a book before buying it.
i am one of these people...
one could even make it a project of last chapter versions of books, which are in the catalogue already, only.

that said, everyone can start a project like this.
or the abc collection part 3.

which i won't start in march, and i doubt i ever will.
the two collections we made already were really fast paced.
english is a foreign language for me, the work loads multiplies in my minds...
