The "Staff Picks" were a feature of our librivox page on archive.org, where 10 hand-picked books were listed on the right hand side of the page each month. This feature has been discontinued, but the list lives on in our news feed on the librivox homepage, and you can also go to all the posts directly here.
The list is updated in the beginning of each month. The main goal is to show the variety of audio books we are offering, and to help listeners find the hidden gems in our catalog.
Can I help?
Most certainly! The staff picks were so called because that's how the Internet Archive, our file host, called them - but LibriVox is entirely volunteer-run and has no "staff". Or maybe we should say: everybody is "staff" at LibriVox!
Have a look at this thread in the forums, where you can make your own suggestions. At the moment, there is a theme for each month. However, feel free to post any suggestions, even if they don't fit the theme right now - they surely come handy at some later point.
Currently Availle is the admin responsible for the staff picks (i.e., collecting them, writing a nice blog post and putting it online), so pointers to literature, dramas (or dramatic readings) or poetry are especially welcome.
And let's not forget: Books we don't have cannot be picked! The more books we produce, the better - have fun recording!
What has been chosen before?
