In Which I Read Chapter One from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I’ve been toying with the idea of recording my own audiobooks for my children’s listening pleasure. It all started out with finding out about LibriVox a few months ago and thinking this might be a fun project to do with the kids this summer, as we all act out different voices in a book. Then, I heard Sherrie and Drew’s podcast, and it really hit home what a great bonding experience this could be. Of course, it may be biting off more than I can chew–imagine the chaos from three strong-willed children–so for now, I’m going to start off small and try this out myself.

I decided to begin with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, courtesy of Project Gutenberg. This has been trickier than I thought–it is definitely a work-in-progress. Still, it has been a great learning experience.

In case you’d like to hear my voice–here’s Chapter 1: Down the Rabbit Hole, in 11 minutes and 40 seconds. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Enjoy!

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
