The poetry book is DONE!!

Yesterday I cataloged the poetry book! It’s all done! Hooray!

For those of you who don’t know it already, I’ve been recording a book for LibriVox called Poems Every Child Should Know, an anthology of poetry for children, edited by Mary E. Burt and published in 1904. It was divided by http://dailylit.com into 81 short sections, some with several short poems, some with just one long poem. The finished book is 8 hours long and contains nearly 200 poems.

I’ll start podcasting this one soon, but if you just can’t wait and you want to hear the whole thing now, go for it:

    Great work. I’ve been looking for King Arthur audio-books for days if not for weeks!
    Thank you very much from Germany.

    Hi Andreas,
    I think we have some King Arthur books/poems at Librivox… Go to our new searchable catalog here:
    http://librivox.org/newcatalog/ and type “arthur” into the title field. Looks like we’ve got an “Arthurian Collection” that’s not quite done yet, and Morte d’ Arthur ready to download. If you have any requests, you can head to our forum – http://librivox.org/forum/ – and make a post in the “Suggestions” area!

    Happy listening :)

    I just wanted to thank you for the work you did for LibriVox. I am a restless soul by nature. I’ve found when taking a break from writing, drawing, and the many other projects that keep me busy, listening to spoken word is most relaxing. Thank you again for helping breath new life into classic works.
