  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/23644
  • 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!


    Magic Window:

    Genres for the project: Children's Fiction/School

    Keywords that describe the book:

    ============================================
  • 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!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Marjorie Dean, High School Freshman. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Marjorie Dean, High School Freshman, by Pauline Lester. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Marjorie Dean, High School Freshman by Pauline Lester. 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 Marjorie Dean, High School Freshman, by Pauline Lester. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename marjoriedeanhsfreshman_##_lester_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. marjoriedeanhsfreshman_01_lester_128kb.mp3)
  • Example ID3 V2 tags
    Ignore ID3 tags. These are entered automatically during the catalog process.


    Transfer of files (completed recordings)

Great! I added a ~ to the subject. We will wait here in the launchpad for a little bit and see if we can attract a DPL before we head over to going solo. Don't worry if we don't get one right away and please don't wait on having one before you start recording. Enjoy the project. I'll be lurking around if you need me. :wink:

Ch. 1 PL OK!

I love these stories. I suppose youngsters today would find them dated, but there is something universal in them regardless.
