I just heard the first chapter of Lady Chatterly's Lover and I loved it. I tried to read the book once and thought it was boring, so this surprised me.
Thank you!

My wife Alcia and I listened to your beautiful and expressive rendering of this classic tonight as part of a delightful Saturday evening meal.

We had just had a very special day (we are moving to a lovely new home) and I wanted to put on something appropriate (i.e., also special).

I had just found this site in the last day or two and had been meaning to spend some time listening and wondered how Alicia and I might find time to listen together.

A quiet dinner, listening to your wonderful voice, was just the perfect cap for the day. Like our own personal dinner theatre, with you, Jan. Thanks so much.

Thank you. Thank you. Can't imagine a nicer way for this project to be used: in celebration of a new beginning.
