I have to admit, I heaved a sigh of frustrated longing when I read that bit about 'everything published before 1953'. I recently recorded and have been self-marketing an audiobook, and have been considering doing another once the first has paid for itself. Well, that'd be dandy, except I'm restricted to recording stuff published before 1923! Sure, there's plenty of good stuff published before 1923, but it's seriously frustrating trying to find something that old which A: modern listeners would actually want to hear, and B: is feasible to record. (For instance, I briefly considered doing 'The Wizard of Oz', but that thing takes HOURS to read - I'd fill up three CDs, minimum, and if you think it's hard selling ONE CD at a time...) Another thirty years of material would have been a big help, and I might have broke even by now. Stupid law...
