The Junior Classics, Volume 3: Tales from Greece and Rome by VARIOUS ( - 0). Edited by William Patten (1868 - 1936).

The purpose of The Junior Classics is to provide, in ten volumes containing about five thousand pages, a classified collection of tales, stories, and poems, both ancient and modern, suitable for boys and girls of from six to sixteen years of age. This collection consists of Volume 3, including many tales from Homer and Virgil among others. (Summary by William Patten)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/56887
  • 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!

What do you think about the file name: too long?
I checked the catalogue and for Volume 1 it's e.g. https://ia800305.us.archive.org/14/items/junior_classics_vol1_librivox/junior-classics-vol1_000_patten.mp3

so remove the "Greece and Rome" part?

I've been away for a few days and have a couple of other projects to finish up, so I haven't started recording yet. Soon!

Hi Gill!

Sections 0 -2 are PL OK!

Excellent readings! You have a wonderful steady and expressive voice!

Are you an Expat living in France? You do not seem to have a French accent...
