Where Your Treasure Is by Holman F. Day (1865 - 1935).


Holman Day spins a fast-paced narrative that's 50% biography, 50% adventure novel, and 100% captivating, even for today's readers. "Where Your Treasure Is" is subtitled "Being the Personal Narrative of Ross Sidney, Diver" and it tells the tale of a man who, at age 15, unexpectedly finds "treasure" (actually just copper pieces) in a chimney, a discovery that leads him to live a life of danger as he risks his life deep sea diving for real treasure. ( John N. Daily)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55360
  • 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!

Hi John, I will set this exciting tale up for you tonight. :D
EDIT: OK, the magic window is up and ready. Happy reading! Oh, and I added a tilde to the title to announce that you are looking for a DPL, hope you don't mind.

Thanks, Phil; I appreciate it. And speaking of exciting tales, I listened to your reading of Harry Harrison's "Arm of the Law" yesterday, and it was terrific!

John, I am moving this project to Readers Wanted to keep from cluttering up the Launch Pad any longer. We will advertise for a DPL.

Thanks, Phil. I'd like to read this, though. Did I set it up incorrectly?

Not at all. You did everything just fine. You will need a DPL to proof listen to the sections that is all. I left it in the Launch Pad hoping someone would see it and volunteer but it can't stay there too long. Do you have anyone who would like to do this?

Nope. But I'm sure the right person will come along eventually. :D

Whoops. John, I have moved this to the proper forum Going Solo after mistakenly moving it to Readers Wanted. No harm done.
Remember that you will be filling out the magic window; if you need help just let me know. :D

Hi,
Do you still need a DPL? I am just finishing up another project so available. The sounds very interesting!

Regards,
Betsy

That would be great Betsy. I can't answer for John of course, but assuming he will approve I am putting you in as DPL. Thanks again.
