How could I resist a title like that in non fiction? Librovox volunteers, I love these collections you dream up together! presenting good stuff from our audio wealth in different forms and contexts makes it more likely a reader will hear any particular piece thus multiplies the effects of your hard work. I really can't say enough good about librovox. Seriously, if I were looking for a mate I would look at librovox volunteers and ? constant readers.? To heck with eharmony or whatzit. I wouldn't be surprised if people were already meeting this way. Back to the fascinating show!
