Prowling about Panama by George A. Miller ( - 0).



Quote:
This book is about the author's adventures and prowling about on the isthmus of Panama in the early 20th century, a fledgling nation at that time, having recently declared sovereignty and become it's own country. ( Jason In Panama)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38815
  • 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!

Or I'm trying to get away from my assigned reading... ;)

ETA:
Ok, here is your MW. You don't have to fill in the ID3 tags (they are automatically populated when I catalog the finished project). Ah, and if you don't have a DPL lined up, let's put a tilde ~ into the subject line of the topic, so prospective prooflisteners know to come by :)

Thanks Dave! I don't know how to put you in, but I'm sure that Katherine will do it, and then we move to going solo. It will be a few days most likely before I get the first chapter up, got to clean up some old reads first.

Yes, Kathrine will add me to the project. You though can edit your first post to remove the ~ from before the book title.

Splendid, welcome Dave! :thumbs: I removed the ~ -- and now I'll just move us, too, while I remember. Hang on tight while we fly to Going Solo

FYI, in working on the author database, I found that George Miller's death date is 1961. Fortunately, Panama is a Life+50 country, so if you actually are in Panama (as per the credit given in the summary), you're OK to record this, since it entered Panamanian PD Jan 1, 2012.

I finally started this one! I hope to put in at least a few chapters each week until it is done, interspersed with my other projects.
