Very Entertaining

(5 stars)

Thank you again, Librivox volunteers, for bringing laughter and entertainment and such clean fun into the lives of your readers (or listeners). It is great to know that there are unselfish people who are willing and able to give freely of themselves--their time and efforts--for the benefit of others. I believe that is what God would want us all to do (instead of thinking up new ways of hurting or causing more pain in the world). It is however, amazing that their are so few people who are taking advantage of this entirely free and wonderful way of learning about the way our fathers and grandfathers lived in the same world in which we live, but, in a world which has really changed so little in all these years. God bless you Librivox and God bless our country in which we have the freedom to learn in so many ways of the good things of life.
