Tales of a Traveller by Washington Irving (1783 - 1859).


Writing under the pseudonym, Geoffrey Crayon, Washington Irving chronicled his travels through Europe in the early 1820's. The book was a critical failure but a big hit with the reading public. Irving himself wrote that the book contained some of his best work. The volume is broken up into four separate parts or "Books," as Irving called them. [will expand prior to completion]. ( Greg Giordano)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/13514
  • 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!

Ann,

You are awesome. When I saw that you did your MC magic I quickly entered the chapter titles.

Thanks again for your help!

Take care,

The text says Traveller not Traveler - is this some US spelling or a mistake? If it's a mistake the database needs changing :D

That is what happens when one types rather than cuts and pastes. The double-''ll" is correct - "Traveller." How do I correct that?

I have changed to double l's in the database. If you want to change it in the title of this thread, there is an edit button at the top right hand side of the post. Click that and you can change it.


Moving on to Going Solo!

Ann,

Thank you for correcting my error in the database. I went through and believe I have corrected all the errors in the original post. The one instance that I can't correct is the spelling in the header. Do you know how I can correct that?

Thank you again, for helping me get out of this mess!

Take care,

Greg

This was an easy one to fix! I added your extra 'l' for you, so now we are all ready to proceed with our travelling!

I don't know how you did that, but that is why you are an MC and I'm not!

Thank you!

Ann,

Chapter 2 has been posted. This was my first long recording since getting over a sinus infection. To me it sounds as though my voice gets a bit thin towards the end of the chapter. If you notice that also and feel i need to redo it please let me know. Of course I would rather not but am always willing to do what is right for the integrity of the book.

Thank you!

Greg
