The ones on the Ambleside list posted in the link above your post - yes. Ones posted on Ambleside's website, no, because they copyright their work making them e-texts. :(

I have been enjoying the Home Education book that was available here, and I am wondering if there is a possibility of the other volumes being done as well?
I know quite a few folks who would love to see these as audio books.
And I would be happy to read and assist with them :-)

Can we revive this post?
I am very interested in having CMs volumes put on Librivox, and would be very willing to help record several chapters.
There is a much more recent thread with links to verification of publication of original texts so the copyrights should be in the clear for us to proceed.

I’m also interested in helping with the next volume. I can’t coordinate but I would record several chapters.

Here’s the link to the Vol. 2 text: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uva.x000598782;view=1up;seq=7;skin=mobile

I believe we can. I could probably BC if needed... but unless someone else want's to, they can go ahead

I think it was your thread that was referring to. I know nothing of coordinating, but am ready to read.

I’m brand new to the forum. What does BC mean?
What are the steps to making this happen?

The BC is the book coordinator. They are the ones who put in claims and set the project up. To start a project, you'd go to the project template generator, https://librivox.org/add_project where you would fill out the details, and then copy and paste the results as a new post in the new projects launch pad. Here's a guide to BCing: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/How_To_Become_A_Book_Coordinator

If you want to start the project yourself, I'd be happy to get you started :D <smile>

Better not to have a brand new LibriVoxer become a BC right away, especially of a large project like this one.
We like to see some familiarity with LibriVox systems before becoming a book coordinator. This way you'll have a better idea about the process, what the volunteers need to know, and what needs to be done. Most people gain this familiarity by recording some chapters, or a solo project, some do a lot of proof-listening or help out in other ways. - If you post a new collaborative project and we see that you only have a couple of forum posts 'under your belt' we are likely going to suggest to hold your project until you know more about LibriVox.

Please remember, though, that coordinating a project is in most cases quite a time commitment. A medium-sized novel takes 6-12 months for a group to complete, and the BC is expected to stick with the project day by day. If you are doubtful that you can make this kind of commitment, we'd prefer that you help out in other ways on LibriVox.

Oh yes, sorry. I guess I could start the project then, and they could read a little bit first to get familiar with recording and uploading etc.

OK, I'll set it up sometime within the next three or four days and I'll send a link here when it is. Thank you!
