LibriVox is celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary today!!!


Fünf in einer Schote

For this very special occasion 3 very special 5th Anniversary Collections were cataloged today.

What do you do for a fifth anniversary? We decided to have a collection of short works with a difference. We challenged our readers to find any short works which had ‘five’ in the title – in any language. They have done us proud, and the collection extends to three volumes of short stories, poems, fairy tales, memoirs, non-fiction and bible readings, in six languages…

Here are all 3 volumes: Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3.

I read 3 German texts for the collections… one for each. Two of them are fairy tales and the other is a kind of text on the senses.

“Fünf in einer Schote” by Hans Christian Andersen

Die fünf Fragen” by Johann Wilhelm Wolf

Daß mehr als fünf Sinne für den Menschen sein können by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Join us! It’s fun! 😀
