Malcolm by George MacDonald (1824 - 1905).
Malcolm MacPhail has lived, for all of his twenty or so years, in a fishing village on the north coast of Scotland. He lives with his grandfather and, though he has never met his parents, has no curiosity about the details of his birth. However, others in the town have their own curiosity, and their own suspicions, about where this highland man and his infant grandson came from, those twenty or so years ago. When the local marquis and his daughter come to live in their grand estate just outside the town, unoccupied for many years, events begin to move which introduce to them the humble Malcolm, and which may shed some light on Malcolm's past while changing the course of his future. (Devorah Allen)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/7127
  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!

I have a few other sections I'd like to finish out before I plan to really get started on this, but I wanted to go ahead and set it up. :)

Sadly, we'll both have to! I have a few other sections I really need to get done before I jump in to this, and I'll be out of town for five days next week. (NYC!) It should be a great trip, but at the same time, I know I'll be regretting the missed recording opportunities. :lol: I expect that in about two weeks, you should start seeing something from me.

Chapter 2 is PL OK!

P.S. Is unneighborlike a word? I searched it and it said "Sorry, no definitions found." We have found a new word by George MacDonald "unneighborlike" or as the characters in the book said it "oonneebourlike." :lol:

Great reading! :D
