The Lion's Skin by Rafael Sabatini (1875 - 1950).


( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2702?msg=welcome_stranger
  • 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!

MW coming up.

edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. Do you have someone in mind for DPL? If not we can advertise for one. Sounds like an interesting author/book.

Yes, can you please advertise for a DPL?
I hope it will be a lively and even humorous book to enjoy out loud.

I've added a ~ before the title in the subject line to let others know we are looking for a DPL. We may not get someone until after you have posted a chapter.

Hello, Colleen. Thanks for being willing to listen to this book. Do you like adventure and swashbuckling? I think began to enjoy the genre when I first saw Errol Flynn swordfighting Basil Rathbone with Olivia DeHavilland as Maid Marian in Robin Hood.

Chapter 1 is ready, though I must reveal that there are no swordfights yet.

Don't forget to fill in the title and notes (mm:ss) fields in the MW before or as you complete sections.
