Yes, I'd say that they probably fit the bill. :) I'd probably stick with ones 1925 or older, just to be absolutely certain they're not copyrighted.
Alrighty then, guess I'm doing one of those then. I wouldn't know how to word the disclaimer though.

Re: [GRP] Insomnia Collection Vol. 5 - tg

Personally I can't think of anything more boring than city council proceedings. There is a whole collection of them from the city of Ann Arbor, MI on Hathitrust covering a span of a hundred years, from 1891 to 1991. https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/003119036 I don't know which one in particular...

Recording very long chapters/sections?

I hope one of you who are more experienced can help me out here. I recently claimed a couple of sections which are over 5000 words long (that I now have only 5 days left to record). I just now tried to record one of them. As the reading went on, my throat got sorer and sorer and my voice got more an...

Re: [GRP] Report on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident - tg

I take it I'm not supposed to read the captions of the various charts? Also I don't know what to do with the chronology that begins on page 110 in the pdf.

Re: [TRAVEL] Two Years in Oregon by Wallis Nash -jo

I've looked through the two chapters and I've found some names that I'm not sure how to pronounce. I'll list them here. Tillamook Umpqua Santiam Yaquina Multnomah Umatilla Alsea Coquille Nehalem Siletz Ochico Malheur I think that's it. Also, in one of the chapters there is a table which looks like t...

Re: [TRAVEL] Two Years in Oregon by Wallis Nash -jo

I'd like to claim chapters 19 and 20 please. Very good! I've assigned these sections to you. Let me know if you have any questions, including pronunciation of any names. I realize now I made a mistake. I was referring to the chapter numbers in the book and not the section numbers. The sections I ac...

Re: [Non-Fiction] History of England In Words of One Syllable by Helen Pierson - m8b1

I don't think I'll have time to do Chapter 20 by the deadline, so the answer is no. At least I got one of them done on such short notice.

Still, it was interesting to read about the American Revolution from the Bri...

As I still fully intend to record the chapters I claimed, I wish to request an extension. I have not had the opportunities I thought I would have to record. Of course now I realize everybody's waiting on me now...
