forgotten books .org

Cantos 10 & 11

There's something wrong with Cantos 10 & 11. I think they may be duplicates. I listened to them a couple times and it seemed like they were repeats, so I took a careful look at the text while listening and sure enough they both start exactly the same way. The only difference is that one is labeled a...

Sign me up :)

All I ask is that you give me a link to the new thread and don't make me accountable for more than one chapter at a time because I know I can manage to do one at a sitting, but who knows when I might get to a second and so forth.

It says that chapter 4 will be fixed during validation... so would y'all like me to amplify it and re-upload or not?

Okay, I added the five second silence at the end, so this third version should be workable:

I'm leaving early tomorrow and will be gone all week (I'm tired just thinking about it :P).

Finished chapter five. Link: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ry/war_and_peace_06_05_tolstoy.mp3 Length: 13 min 2 sec Size: 11.9mb There are a lot of very annoying pops in the recording.

I recorded chapter four, and am more than open for improving suggestions. URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ry/war_and_peace_06_04_tolstoy.mp3 Time: 07:16 Size: 6.66mb :? I just realized that I forgot to tell the listener that the chapter ended, so I will have to re-upload it shortly.

Thank you very much! I would be only too glad to narrate chapters 4, 5 and 7. I do have one question, however: how have the other narrators been pronouncing the Russian words (especially names) before me? If possible, I would like to pronounce the names the same way they were pronounced when first i...

If have neither read this book nor narrated a book before, but I do have a good understanding of how it is done and I have proofed for some time now. If my lack of experience is not a limiting factor, I would be very interested in helping with narrating or proof listening. In other words, what can I...

Sorry, I should have explained. You pronounced it with a "D" as in David while the text spells it with a "B" as in Bob. It's very minor, but the name crops up again a few verses down and you pronounce it correctly with the B-sound.

Wait up! I've been listening scrupulously over a few days here and found several errors in this last section: Said: "For I repent that I have given my daughter..." Text: "For I repent that I have given him my daughter..." Time: 1:54 Verse: 11:10 Said: "And he sent him vessels of gold for his servant...

I've struck the motherload: the entire open source text for Sir Lancelot Brenton's translation of the Septuagint Old Testament which includes, among other things, third and fourth Maccabees. Here it is: http://www.ccel.org/ccel/brenton/lxx2/files/home.html
