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!
