Rob Roy by Sir Walter Scott.

All files can be found on our catalogue page here: http://librivox.org/rob-roy-by-sir-walter-scott/
. . .a brutally realistic depiction of the social conditions in Highland and Lowland Scotland in the early 18th Century (temporary summary from Wikipedia)
  • Target completion date: 21 December 2012
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/7025
  • Type of proof-listening required::

    Standard Proof-listening
    -- Do the intro and disclaimer match the instructions in the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
    -- Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
    -- Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
    -- Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
    -- Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording, as per the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of
    the file?

Of course. :) I must confess I haven't actually read this book yet but I have discovered a love for Scott's writing (The Talisman is great, and I've been reading Ivanhoe while I'm on the tube) so I'm looking forward to this.

Also I realised that I can't count, as there's actually 46 not 42 sections so I'm just fixing that now. :)

This was originally set up as a solo by Rowen, but she's no longer LibriActive...

If anyone wants to take over as BC, I'll set it up as a collaborative project.

Thanks, Jim!
I did the word counts. There are 2 files with more than 7000 words [both of them are around 7100-7200]. Maybe there's no need to divide them. What do you think?

Eeehm... otherwise I think it's OK. I can't think of anything else.

Oh yes, I remember! I'll correct the first two files in a minute and re-upload them! :D

7200 words should still come in under an hour, so there's no need to split them up.

Of course, if you want to, you can. It's your project. :)

Do you plan to post the word counts in the MW? I find it often helps attract readers.
