Wang Li-yu (王麗玉), another volunteer, is a housewife who joined the project a year ago.

With the idea of “sharing good things in life with good friends,” Wang said she selects her own books and does her own voice recordings, and has now completed eight talking books.

She said it is like reading books for her children at home.

“We want people to hear the good stuff contained in these books and to reflect on their lives. If we can touch some people or inspire them, then all the work has been worthwhile,” she said.
