Ah, light dawns!

The 'in progress' ones should be on the Wiki lists marked Recording in progress, if we know about them.

I am in the progress of posting The Life of Florence Nightingale, Volume 1. (I can't believe that one has not been recorded yet!) It is Year 10, list 4. I will post when I have it posted, which will be in the next day or so!


ETA: Posted! viewtopic.php?p=1185369#p1185369

BTW, both volumes are on PG. Volume 1 http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/40057 Volume 2 http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/40058

Is this an okay online source to use to record the Charlotte Mason works? https://amblesideonline.org/CM/toc.html

No Maggie, I'm afraid not. (I looked at a similar AO page a while back for poetry, it was copyrighted the same way.)
These texts were scanned/typed and proofread by members of the CMSeries email list and AmblesideOnline, and annotated by the AO Advisory and Auxiliary. They copyrighted to AmblesideOnline, and may not be published or re-posted elsewhere.
AmblesideOnline is an online free-use Charlotte Mason curriculum.

The first three books in the series are available at Internet Archive and/or Hathi Trust, links on http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Recordings_of_Books_on_the_Ambleside_List

I also now see the sixth in the series School education at http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100412515, but it is "search only" for me. Is the text visible to US users?

Yes, it is! There is a Full View link in the Viewability section for me. Here's the link straight to the text. http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uva.x000598806;view=1up;seq=7

A Primary Reader is now complete! :clap:
https://librivox.org/a-primary-reader-by-e-louise-smythe/

This was the last PD book not recorded for Year 1. I think someone may have to go into the wiki and change the link from the forum page to the catalog page.
