The Incubator Baby by Ellis Parker Butler (1869 - 1937).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found in the catalog.

https://librivox.org/the-incubator-baby-by-ellis-parker-butler/
Marjorie Fielding is born premature and spends her first months of life in an incubator. Her mother is a modern, broad-minded woman eschewing old fashioned views of childrearing to embrace a scientific method. Science has its place but can it be taken too far? Little Marjorie gives us her perspective. ( Scotty)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/incubatorbaby00butlgoog
  • 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!

Thank you so much, Jo! I just recorded the first chapter and will upload it now. Listening back to myself I am probably not a great voice for this one, haha (I tried), but since it is short and I don't believe it is in the catalog . . . well, I won't be offended if someone else comes along later and wants to do a decent version. :)

I saw this come up on book suggestion and wished my voice was healthy enough to record it. May I DPL it for you? My ears still work. :D

EDIT: I'm so glad you are recording this. You are doing a wonderful job.

Chapter 1 is PL OK.

Just read and edited (redited?), uploaded and added to MW Chapter II.

I miss having a baby in the house as I read this in a quiet room in the corner, then I step out of the room into the zoo and am cured :lol:
