Molly Brown's Junior Days by Nell Speed (1878 - 1913).


This novel is the third in a series of eight books written about Miss Molly Brown of Kentucky during her education at Wellington College in the early years of the 1900's. (Debbie R. Baker Robinson )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/36717
  • 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!

Alright, your MW is ready for you! I did change the text link to go to the main page for that book, just to make life easier for anyone who happens to come by and wants to check out the book. I did put myself down as DPL, but if someone really wants to do it, I don't mind. I will just have to download the book when it's all done! (Speaking of downloading, I am waiting patiently for you to finish Sophomore days!)

Hold on to your knickers. She's singing and dancing and stirring up all kinds of hullabaloo. Almost completely through Christmas. :lol:

2 weeks and 2 days is all it took for Molly to zip through her sophomore days. She's a quick one, she is. Ready to move into the Quadrangle and begin her Junior Days.

Perhaps she'll get a clue about Edwin...

I went back and listened to a chapter in Molly's freshman days. Wow, I was really reading at the speed of light. I am going to conscientiously work at slowing down and putting more emotion into the words. Please feel free to remind me if you believe it is too fast. I have no issues in re recording to make it more enjoyable to the listener. I am trying to learn, not just rushing to get another project in the can. My tendency is to read quickly.

Thanks for your patience, as always..

You can slow yourself down in the Effects tab in Audacity. I have to do this to myself because I know I talk fast. Just do what you normally would do, then when you are ready to put the finishing touches on everything, try Change Tempo, like at -2%. This will slow you down without changing the tone of your voice, and the change is not as noticeable at -2%. Any slower then people might start wondering.

Thanks for your lesson. I am trying very conscientiously to slow down, putting more into the emotion without over dramatizing.
