Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson
Next up (Wednesay): Treasure Island, Chapters 11-12 read by Neal the Podchef.
Another installment of our Weekly Poetry Project: every week someone chooses a public domain poem (not too long) and posts it on the forum under Readers Wanted/Weekly Poetry. Everyone is encouraged to record a version of it.
Last week, in honour of Valentine’s Day, ago we chose:
Poet To His Love, by Maxwell Bodenheim
And here is the randomly-chosen weekly poetry podcast:
Poet To His Love, by Maxwell Bodenheim.
You’ll find twelve other versions on our catalog page.
Check the forum for our next Weekly Poem and join the fun!
A very nice note by Jon Udell about LibriVox, juicy bit:
I don’t know if I’ll manage to contribute any recordings, but I tip my hat to everyone involved in this excellent project. This weekend, for example, New Hampshire was blanketed with new snow. On my outdoor rambles, I’ve been listening to Call of the Wild. I can’t remember when I last read it, and I wouldn’t have made time to reread it, but it’s been wonderful to hear it while tramping through the snow. The voices are Gordon Mackenzie, Kristen McQuillen, Jean O’Sullivan, and Miette, and all four of them did a great job. Thanks!
From Sadie, new listener, new volunteer:
I just wanted to say thank you.
I can’t believe you people have volunteered to put audio stories out on the internet without charging a penny. It’s so easy to get swept up in the profit that can be made on the web, selling nearly everything. As a single disabled mother of one, I have neither the funds nor the ability to go out and buy great books such as the ones you feature.
I thank you most sincerely!
