A Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland by Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784).
Samuel Johnson takes the reader on a little adventure out to the western isles of Scotland, to show them how the places live. It's also a great way to understand how people lived within the 18th century, and it provides a good geography of Scotland's Isles. If your studying Scotland, this would be a good book to help you understand it from the 1700's standpoint. ( Elijah Fisher)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2064
    .
  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!

    • "Chapter [number] of A Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland. 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:
      "A Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland, by Samuel Johnson. [Chapter]"

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of A Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland by Samuel Johnson. 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 A Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland, by Samuel Johnson. "

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

Elijah,

I'd be happy to MC this for you.

Going forward, can you use the text link to the main PG page rather than the html of the text? We prefer that for text links in the catalog.

In this case: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2064

Thank you so much MaryAnn, I appreciate it.

I wasn't sure if the html should be there or not, but thanks for letting me know :thumbs: <thumbs up>

Thanks
Elijah

I have updated the MW, but I moved some sections into each other because they were very short, but I don't know how to remove those 5 open sections. Please help :help:

Hello Elijah,

WOW! The good thing is that they are short sections. :lol: I'll listen to them as soon as possible. Hopefully before the next batch. :mrgreen:

Hey Elijah,

Nice narration. And a good reading pace. I’ve listened to section 1. And I want to ask you about the intro. Are you going to say Chapter or Section? In the first post, it is written Chapter but you said Section.

When we landed, we found our chaise ready, and passed through Kinghorn, Kirkaldy

There is an extra “k” sound. Would you like to cut it?

Thank you! I'm going to say Section, since some of the parts are going to be put into the same recording.
