I started reading for LibriVox a couple of months ago (in late April 09 I think). LibriVox is an online community with the aim of turning public domain books into human read audiobooks. (Public domain means that the books are not longer under copyright). All of the over 2500 audiobooks available there are read by volunteers from all over the world (and in lots of different languages). The audiobooks are completely free and can be (completely legal) shared, downloaded, distributed…
Click on my LibriVox Catalog Page to see (and of course hear) the odd chapters, the poems, the solos, the duets and character roles I’ve done so far (and all that I plan to do in the near future )!
Here is an example of my reading:
Here I’ll only link my Solo projects and my Duets that are either completed or still in progress:
