The Younger Sister by Catherine Anne Hubback (1818 - 1877).

For Austin's Fanns, this is a completion of the Watsons, one of her unfinished novels. Her niece Catherine Anne Hubback restored the first chapters from her memory but did not copy them word to word. Emma Watson was raised by her refined uncle and aunt. When the aunt is widows, she remarries and Emma is sent home. She has to reacquaint herself with her family and learn the advantages and disadvantages of good education in a society which does not encourage mobility between classes. ( Stav Nisser and Wikipedia.)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54066
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Hi Elizabeth,
welcome to Librivox. I hope you will enjoy here. The magic window is not up yet, we are waiting for an mc. But you can take chapter 1 and start recording. You can just continue on and on and when an mc comes you would upload your sections.

As I already told you, please do not try to upload before we have an mc. The book is not yet in the data bace. WHile it's ok to claim chapters before an mc comes along, you cannot upload finished recordings. Please wait until an mc comes along and then upload.

It's ok, sometimes I don't understand either, and I am not new around here (smile).

Hi Stav. I'll set this up for you.

We can move to Readers Wanted as soon as you have time to fill in the MW. If you are not planning to PL yourself, then you may want to post in Listeners Wanted for a DPL.

Jo, I filled in most of the mw. But I was wrong about section numbers. Can you please add 5 more sections?
Elizabeth, I signed you up to volume 1 as we agreed. You can upload now.
