Welcome to LibriVox, JonAndNik - and let me say that I have NEVER seen a more ambitious first post! A sweeping doff of the old chapeau to you!
JonAndNik wrote:THE FABLES OF AESOP
*** I believe these are being read under a different title.
Actually a bunch of HR Schoolcraft's stories were also read here under a different title, but a quick look shows the ones in Patten's collection to be entirely different translations. It's the same way with the Aesop's Fables and I'd encourage you to include them. After all, you're producing William Patten's book and his book wouldn't be complete without those Fables included.

Thank you so much for taking on this tremendous project. I think your target completion date is a bit on the conservative side though. I'd be surprised if it weren't finished by June. I would NOT be surprised to see it finished in April. These things will go like hotcakes!

I'll be your meta-coordinator for this project, so I'll be here if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Just a quick suggestion, you probably don't need the "the" at the beginning of the filenames, and it will shorten the filename a bit.

Like Chip said, I have a feeling this project will fill up quick. Each section seems from what I could tell a few pages long. We can definitely be sure to advertise this to new readers as a way to jump in as well.

With as many chapters as there are here Biotron, multiples are encouraged!!

I'll request a few chapters later, when my list of recordings to do goes down.

A great way to get this to fill up fast is to make a welcome to new people in the introduction section, giving a suggestion they can start with one of these since they're short :) That's how we got Aesop's Fables to go so quick I think.
