Mabel Ross, the Sewing Girl .


Quote:
Orphaned Mabel struggles to raise her sisters by working as a sewing girl for long hours and low wages. She meets her challenges with a calm steady faith while her younger sister chafes against the injustice of their lot in life. She is determined to uncover the mystery she thinks is lurking behind their misfortune. This book will appeal to those who love intimate family dramas, light mysteries, scathing social commentaries, or sewing machines! ( Jennifer Fournier)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/mabelrosssewing00unkngoog
  • 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin

    Genres for the project: Family Life; General Fiction/Published 1800 -1900

    Keywords that describe the book: Mystery, faith, christian, social, sewing machine, sewing, injustice

    ============================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Mabel Ross, the Sewing Girl. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Mabel Ross, the Sewing Girl. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Mabel Ross, the Sewing Girl. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Mabel Ross, the Sewing Girl. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename mabelross_##_unknown_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. mabelross_01_unknown_128kb.mp3)
  • Example ID3 V2 tags ID3 tags are now optional. They are added automatically during cataloging.

As an FYI, I entered this as author "Unknown" rather than Anonymous. I also shortened the suggested filenames abit.

I've added Dave as DPL so I think we are all set. Moving to Going Solo...

0 PL OK.

MW looks fine though you should change the status of the files to "Ready for PL." Off now to get my hanky. And off to the Art Institute of Chicago before some exhibits close. Will finish later.

1-2 PL OK.

Whoops... didn't realize it is so long since I posted. I have recorded another chapter (or two?) but want to get a few more done before uploading.

I have not forgotten you and have not abandoned this project ;)

I expect it won't be until after Sept that I can give recording time to this but I still plan/hope to meet my 31 Dec goal for the book being done.
