There were a series of Boy Scout Year Books published in the early 20th century, with each volume having a mix of short fiction and non-fiction pieces for boys. They could be fun projects to do as a whole, or a good source of short pieces for the various collections, particularly the children's lit collections.

Here are the links to the volumes I found on Internet Archive:

Do you plan on BCing? I would be interested in reading the foreword of the 1917 one and see how I feel from there! :D :D

I have not BC'd yet but have been thinking about expanding my Librivox efforts in that direction. It's kind of kicking around now as a New Year's resolution. So the answer to your question is, maybe, but I'm not claiming it at the moment so anyone else who might want to take it up should feel free; and when I do decide to make the jump, it will likely be a couple of months yet. But I will have this on my potential BC project list when I do!
