LibriVox hits 6000!

Posted on October 3, 2012 by | Posted in about LibriVox, For Volunteers, News, Uncategorized | Comments: 8 Comments

Yesterday LibriVox welcomed the 6000th project to its catalogue. It’s The Princess Aline by Richard Harding Davis (1864-1916), read by Carolin Kaiser. You can find it on its catalogue page.

This is less than a year since we announced the 5000th project.

We continue to complete about 3 projects every day – about 44% of these (2671) are solo recordings. About 14% (864) are projects in languages other than English.

Over 5000 readers have completed at least one section, 272 readers have each completed over 100 sections, and 17 readers have each completed more than 1000 sections.

Viva LibriVox! Onward and upward to the next 1000! :D
