Ok I will claim ch 8 for myself, then we have only ONE chapter left YEAH! (and 6 left to record) Well, with any luck, you'll have five left after today. I just uploaded Chapter 3 to you via YouSentIt. Hope it's OK. I recorded it just after I had my morning coffee, and the coffee kicked in, so I hop...

Well, southern Ontario voices are well-represented: Midland, south of Barrie, and me (ex-Toronto, with summers spent on the eastern shores of Lake Simcoe). Interestingly, I have relatives in Midland, my wife has business associates in Barrie, and she herself used to live in Orillia. Say....do you su...

Hermione--nice choice!

I'm incapable of saying much in the mornings until I've had my coffee; never mind attempting something like "Hermione." But I manage somehow. Your husband will too.

Again, good choice!

Starlite,

I'm as good as my word. You can confirm me for Chapter 3, The Marine Excursion of the Knights of Pythias. I'll have fun with this one!

Well, as there is never any objections to multiple versions, I _might_ let you :wink: (provided you donate ONE chapter to me :P ) Seriously, though, Multiples are always welcome. If I had known you wanted to do this, I would have chosen another of his works as I wanted some Canadian content. He act...

I am doing Stephan Leacock's "Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town" over in readers wanted. Ohhh.... I had been hoping to do this as a solo project. :( I've loved Sunshine Sketches since I was a child, spending summers not far from Orillia, and visiting there frequently. I dunno....would anybody obje...

I've just sent, via YouSendIt, my recording of "Hoodoo McFiggin's Christmas," by Stephen Leacock. It's a humorous story of a young boy who has a rather disappointing Christmas, but who makes the best of things.

Quick question--For short stories, the OP says nothing about "This recording by...." Can we fit such a line in at the top of the recording, if we're doing a short story?

Great photo, and a nice looking little kitten. My wife promptly suggested "Merry" for a name. Which is kind of curious, because our cats (currently, six of them) have come by their names somewhat awkwardly. Most of our cats' names have not come easily or quickly, so perhaps the speed with which my w...

Okay, I had to give this a try also:

Recorded by Dave Ranson

Hope it's OK...like a few others, I didn't listen to anything done before. So I guess this is a real jazz approach: let's do it and see what happens.

So many... Stephen King's The Stand is one I'd like to do. Same for Shel Silverstein's children's poems. Where the Sidewalk Ends is a particular favourite. And for some reason, books of collected sports columns. I've quite enjoyed Rick Reilly's columns in Sports Illustrated , and I know they are col...
