New Obsession…

Well, my brother has a lot to answer for (what sibling doesn’t in the great totting up of things in one’s life?), but for this, he can be forgiven, I think…

When et Vir and I were home at Christmas, my brother told me about LibriVox, where they take public domain books (like those at Project Gutenberg) and make them into audiobooks – all done by volunteers. Anywhere. And not even all in English.

So, I’ve been spending some of my time with my handy-dandy digital recorder recording poetry (I’m working up to prose…) and sending it off to the appropriate website…

And here’s what I’ve done so far!! I’m terribly excited, especially since they’d also be glad about some of my students getting involved…. Speaking & Listening projects, here we come!!!
