Re: [Animals] The American Book of The Dog -jo

Section 24 is PL OK. Well read, Colleen, and very interesting. The sketches in this chapter don't look anything like the Irish Terrier pictured on the AKC website today. I have seen these dogs at bench shows and they seem to bounce when they walk, as if they had flubber on their feet. Looks like the...

Re: Any help from well-versed and established volunteers, welcome

I have already loved literature since childhood. Some of my favorite works are classics like Shakespeare, The Romantic poets, Jane Austin...though I realize many of these works may have already been recorded. I would welcome help in knowing how to begin, lists of much-needed books to be recorded, a...

Re: [NOT PD] Gone With The Wind

Well, as Scarlett herself would do, I shall pout and stomp and wring my handkerchief, and if that doesn't work my eyes shall brim over with crocodile tears, and if that doesn't melt your hearts, I shall feign a faint, and if that fails too, I'll just toss my curls, go about my business, and think ab...

[NOT PD] Gone With The Wind

Is it possible I could record Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Published in 1936, I know, I know, but it is available on Project Gutenberg Australia in PD format.

Please say yes, or I shall cry. :mrgreen:

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Stanzas Written In His Library by Robert Southey

David, I am confused about when this project ends. First Post says 0600 GMT Sunday, May 20th, 2018 (12:00AM CDT) Does this mean midnight on Sunday, noon on Sunday, or midnight on Saturday? As many people have confusion on the 12 Noon vs 12 Midnight hour, some people choose an hour or a minute off of...
