Dec 18, 2012: A Christmas Carol

A couple weeks ago a listener (Heather) suggested that I record a solo version of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” so I did that :) Aravis was my MC and Proof-Listener extraordinaire. She did ALL the tedious LibriVox tasks and let me do just the fun part — recording!

As usual, reading the story aloud made me notice things I hadn’t before. Did you ever realize that Scrooge’s nephew’s wife is pregnant? See if you can sniff out the delicate Victorian hints.

A very Merry Christmas to you all!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been meaning to read this to the kids and now I can download it so we can listen to it in the car as we do a lot of driving this month.

    As a side, my husband has been reading “The Fellowship of the Ring” to our kids at night and the other night he was too sick to read, so it was so nice to have your readings here to fill in. We love them: coughs, mistakes and all! No need to edit for our sake. :)
