Folly in Fairyland by Carolyn Wells (1862 - 1942).

Quote:
A tale inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Wells writes about Folly, short for Florinda, who journeys to Fairyland where she meets a myriad of fairytale creatures including Puss in Boots, Aladdin, Cinderella, and the Queen of Hearts to name a few. Folly experiences many adventures including a castle where everyone is under a spell entrapping them in a deathlike sleep, as well as meeting Scheherezade and the Popular Popinjays. Listen at your own peril! (pjcsaville)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://books.google.com/books?id=_5VUAAAAYAAJ

  2. 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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Folly in Fairyland. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Folly in Fairyland, by Carolyn Wells. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Folly in Fairyland by Carolyn Wells. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Folly in Fairyland, by Carolyn Wells. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  4. Example filename follyinfairyland_##_wells_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. follyinfairyland_01_wells_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: maryannspiegel
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

  6. Any questions?
