1335, look there!

Another 7 to catalog, come on people! It's definitely possible with your effort so I can win this! :mrgreen:

Oh: Happy New Year 2021 from the other end of the world! :D
Cheers, Ava.

That 2009 one does hide way down there on the list. :lol:

Another was cataloged. We're at 131 / 1336. We have a new leader - Rosebud!

P.S. If we ever do this in the future, keep in mind that it's much easier to determine the leader if we do the "closest without going over" method. :P

Of course, what we really need is the number of hours listening we have provided.......

This was a lot of fun. Thank you Tricia!

And I have the tongue-twister project ready to go except for 3 missing inputs - you know who you are! Note that the tongue-twister is being final PL'd by our contest winner, RSlabaugh, which seems a very fitting coincidence and conclusion.

I am now reverting back to my more normal shy and serious LV demeanor for 2021. I'm sure you are all grateful.

Happier New Year, Todd

But before I go back to my cave, let me just say that if we'd had a November like the December we just had, our total would be 1370 and I would have won....

Thanks, Todd

Haha! And if I had pancakes, I'd have breakfast!

I have pancakes. And waffles! Even, somewhere in the fridge, bacon.

But, alas, no way to share....

Sorry, Todd

Yes, congratulations!

(Incidentally, I'm working on a song for the award ceremony. "There she is, Miss LibriVox...")

Apparently you forgot about the 'holiday slump' when you carefully computed your guess... I always wondered how you ended up with such a high number! 8-)

I figured much of the world did not have the American Thanksgiving holiday celebration - such as it was in 2020 - in November.

Thanks, Todd

:) And with member numbers increasing by leaps and bounds it was really hard to know how this would turn out! Just had to rub it in a little. :wink:

Thanks to all for the congrats! *solemn bow*

Happy New Years to all!! :9:
