BBC Webscape on LibriVox

Posted on July 9, 2007 by | Posted in about LibriVox, in the press, News | Comments: 4 Comments on BBC Webscape on LibriVox

Kate Russell of BBC’s Click > Webscape did a little piece on LibriVox which I gather made it onto the tube. There’s a write-up on the web also, which, among other things, says:

The list of titles is not as long as I would like, but it is growing all the time and the quality of the recordings is generally very good.

And as with all such comments, we make an open invitation to all BBC listeners, watchers, readers, employees, and freelancers, Kate Russell included, to join us and help us make that catalog bigger!
