Even though I engaded in a joint project with Epachuko to read "Tradiciones peruanas" by Ricardo Palma (see thread viewtopic.php?f=60&t=82846 if you want to help out), and this will have priority in my to-do list, I'd like to claim the short poem book "20 poemas de amor y una canción desesperada", which has already been read in English but not in Spanish, so I'd like to do so, if you're all OK with it.

I already checked if it's a free domain book, and it became so this year, so I would like to "call dibs" on it, since I always loved it.

What should I do in order to get things sorted?

Thanks

I'm looking for a clearly out-of-copyright version of it, and I'm having trouble.

The English version is not recorded for LibriVox. :hmm:

It was published in 1924, so it is public domain in the USA. The poet died in 1973, so it is still under copyright everywhere in the world except the USA. :lol: That may be one reason I cannot find a scan of it.

Is this copy visible to people in the US? It's not to me in Canada. It doesn't show a publication date on the main catalog record page:

Mystery/PulpFic: Dope, by Sax Rohmer
The one that started them all: Self-Help, by Samuel Smiles

Oh, and we don't call "dibs" on books. If someone else decides they want to record it, then we'll have two versions.

Yes, you're right. My bad, I misunderstood a topic about it.

Sorry, I didn't know that. Noob fail

I just found out that the copyright expired in Argentina, but it still applies in some other countris (Spain is amongst them, so I am afraid I am not allowed to record it yet)

Give it another 22 years, and you'll be all set to record it. :lol:
