  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10641
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard


    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

Hello! This particular book is a solo, so it'll be read by one person in it's entirety.

You can find group projects in any of the forum boards that start with "Readers Wanted." In fact, there's a board specifically for poetry and short stories.

But first, you'll want to get your 1-minute test approved. The instructions for that can be found in the LibriVox wiki. The link for that is in the header for the forum website.
