Re: [SOLO] Celebrated Travels and Travellers vol. 1 by Jules Verne-Leni

Thanks for that :)
You'll have to wait a few more days for the next sections. Currently, my nose is like a leaky faucet and I go through boxes of tissues like crazy :roll:

Your claim is in the MW. Enjoy the reading :)

I also removed the pre-claim by Dedsi for sections 22 and 23, as they haven't logged in since June and still haven't submitted their 1-minute test.

Re: Abandoned Projects with some chapters recorded

Hold on. I've just read the thread and there's already one version of it in our catalogue. https://librivox.org/the-life-and-adventures-of-james-p-beckwourth-by-t-d-bonner/
The way it was marked in the Abandoned thread made it look like the abandoned project would be the first reading. I'll pass :)

Re: Abandoned Projects with some chapters recorded

Can I please have a look at The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckwourth by T. D. Bonner
I've been thinking about soloing it.

Re: [SOLO] Celebrated Travels and Travellers vol. 1 by Jules Verne-Leni

Chapter 1 has been uploaded. I've gotten to editing it today.
I have an idea to skip the enumeration part before the start of the chapters (approx. 0:30-1:30 in this one). It basically just serves as an abstract... Tell me what you think.

Re: ~ [SOLO] Celebrated Travels and Travellers vol. 1 by Jules Verne-Leni

Welcome onboard, Leni :)
With the previous three solos I managed to maintain a nice, steady pace, finishing them quite fast. Let's see if I manage to do the same with this one. I've already recorded one section. Now to editing....

Re: Celebrated Travels and Travellers vol. 1 by Jules Verne

I realize this has been recorded before. In fact, I took part in the recording of volumes 2 and 3 :mrgreen: But I'll try and record this one anyway. (because discoveries 8-) ) The number of sections I gave is the number used in version 1. I may revise it afterwards.

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 070 - jo

Fixed and re-uploaded. New runtime 38:56 should have been quote They are not gay, like other folk.” Unquote – or better yet end quote I've always thought "quote unquote" can be used the way I used it. That's also what this dictionary entry suggests: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/quote%2...

Re: FULL [DRAM READ] Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky-maryann

It was interesting how different the workload for Narrator was in this one compared to "Michael Strogov" (the only other project where I did the Narrator part). While MS was mostly narration, here it was mostly dialogues and monologues.

Only the Epilogue remains to be recorded, do I understand correctly? I'll try to record it tomorrow.
