Featured Weekly

From Librivox wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Each week on Friday a new book will be chosen to be featured on LibriVox's main page. This is our way of showcasing some of the recordings that have been enjoyed by... anyone. The feature contains a short description on the recording, and a 30 second clip.

Submit Your Suggestion

If you don't have a forum account, feel free to e-mail your submissions to sinister@greenkri.com. Submissions for each week will be chosen Wednesday nights to give time to set up the information. Feel free to make submissions for the following week.

What Can We Submit?

It can be a whole book, a poem, short story, and etc, from anything completed in the catalog. Try to focus on the reading itself, not the text.

  1. What is your favorite recording, and why?
  2. What recording did you find unique, and why?
  3. What were recording were you (pleasantly) surprised by, and why?
  4. What recording did you learn something from (as a fellow volunteer), and why?
  5. Other reasons you might suggest a recording...

Please provide a link to the catalog page with your submission. We have multiple versions of some of our works.

A Request to Submitters

It would be helpful if you can write a paragraph or two about why you think this recording qualifies to be featured for a week. If you don't feel comfortable with doing so, make sure that you give explicit and clear reasons, and we can flesh it out later.
