Greetings, I hope this is appropriate content.... I am new, just getting in a chapter or two on some group projects... but my goal is to do solo reads of books from the late 1800s and early 1900s from back when Psychology was emerging from Philosophy. I would start with books by Edwin Bissell Holt. Potential works include:

No, I'm not really as ambitious as this might make it seem... and I know a few of these already have recordings in Librivox... but it seemed useful to put a list somewhere... and maybe others interested in this topic will reply!

Welcome! Just judging by the publication dates you've given for each of these, and without having double checked the links, it looks like any of these would be ok for us to do here.

And while you say that some of them have been recorded for LV, I believe that in fact, we don't have any of them. :hmm: Unless I'm missing something, the only representation of this author that we have anywhere in our catalogue is in this project, in which he co-wrote the first section. We do have a catalogue page for him, but so far, nothing on it: https://librivox.org/author/11004

So of course, any of these would be a welcome addition! :D I'm glad that you are starting with some sections in group projects. That will help you to gauge how much time you would need to dedicate to a solo endeavor. When you feel you are ready, you can go to the Launch Pad for information on how to start a solo project.

E.B. Holt is clear, there isn't a huge community around him. I was thinking of the William James books, I knew a handful of his books were already in here: https://librivox.org/author/942

Now that I am checking, there are two of Hugo Münsterberg's books, neither are the ones I mentioned https://librivox.org/author/2062

None of Ralph Barton Perry's books are in, though an essay of his is included here: https://librivox.org/author/10997

It looks like P.J. Taylor is pushing the same sort of content https://librivox.org/reader/9165... and maybe Carl Manchester https://librivox.org/reader/296... Is there some way to tag people in posts?

Ah, I see. I was under the impression that all of the works you had listed were Holt. I saw the names, and assumed they were publishers. :roll: My mistake.

No, there is no tag feature. If you want to get ahold of a particular reader, you might try sending a PM. Many people have notifications set up when they receive PMs. But certainly not everyone, particularly volunteers who have been absent for quite some time already.

Pragmatism by James has been recorded once: https://librivox.org/pragmatism-by-william-james/

But of course people are always welcome to record additional versions.
