Today’s voice log entry is a follow-up on the Principles of geology post (Parts 1, 2, and 3) from back in 2018.
Principles of Geology: being an attempt to explain the former changes of the Earth’s surface, by reference to causes now in operation is a book by the Scottish geologist Charles Lyell, first published in 3 volumes in 1830–1833.
Lyell used geology throughout as a basis to strengthen his argument for Uniformitarianism. He used geological proof to determine that the Earth was older than 6,000 years, as had been previously contested. The book shows that the processes that are occurring in the present are the same processes that occurred in the past.
The project was open for recording on Feb 23 2018. Coordinated by Ann Boulais and with the contributions of over two dozen readers, this 46-hour behemoth of an audiobook was successfully added to the LibriVox catalog on Sep 9 2019. The CD case insert’s beautiful cover art (seen here as a featured image) was designed by Yeanne Yau.
Personally, being a part of this colossal endeavor was a humbling experience. My gratitude and admiration goes to everyone involved in seeing this through to the end. Looking forward to voicing more content alongside LibriVox’s amazing community in 2020.
Скитник и прокълнато дете.
Магии и заклинания.
И разбира се, дракони.
Изминала е година, откакто Ерагон напуска познатите му земи в търсене на идеалното място, на което да обучи ново поколение Драконови ездачи. Очаква го много работа: да построи огромно здание, в което да приюти драконите и своите приятели, да осигури прехраната им, да пази драконовите яйца. Да приобщи войнствените ургали и горделивите елфи. В този тежък момент от злободневните задачи го откъсва видение от Елдунари. Неочаквани гости му помагат да вземе важно решение, а една стара улгарска легенда му дава нова насока.
Тази книга съдържа три разказа, сред които и откъс от мемоарите на незабравимата вещица и гадателка Анджела… написани от сестрата на Кристофър – Анджела Паолини, вдъхновила образа на билкарката!
Here is something from a book I’ve been pitching in on over at LibriVox for some time now – Principles of Geology by Charles Lyell. The below segment is part of a voluminous project to convert all three volumes of the Scottish geologist’s work to audio format.
