Hi,

I see that there are completed projects of various books/chapters of the Douay-Rheims Bible. Would anyone be interested in a group project of any particular book? I'm not sure if there is a book that hasn't been recorded yet.

Link to full text: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1581/pg1581-images.html

Let me know if anyone finds another full-text source. This one is kinda hard to read because every verse is on a new line.

Thanks,
Ryan

All of the NT has been done by James Carson some years ago. He has a pleasant voice and does a great job (according to the bits I heard.)

I'm not sure about the OT, but that seems like a good project if any books are missing.
Not feeling well. I'll get back to work as soon as possible. My LibriVox: https://librivox.org/sections/readers/13278

If you use the main project page for your text it is likely to be more readable.

Here is a list of what we have: https://librivox.org/group/10 Note that it is in alphabetical order, not the order in which books appear in the Bible. So it may take a bit of back-and-forth checking to see what is still missing.

I am willing to read the book of psalms. I see it has not been done. But I need a MC

You will get an MC after the book is posted as a new project in the New Project Launch Pad. Here's how to do it: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=13513
