Question: are we reading what's in the brackets?
I've been reading them (can't say they seem necessary...) but could easily remove them when I edit my sections. Thanks!
It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility; they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. ~~ Charlotte Bronte

Hi - I think in section 37, it should be "the dejection which clouded" not "the defection which clouded." Should I change it - it has an impact on the whole sense.

Thanks

Hi,

I checked the scanned version and you're right, it's dejection :)

Hi Mexyna :)

It's 3360 word long, which is about 20-30 minutes of final duration. Of course, you need to take into account the recording and editing, which can take some time :)

As for the target date, it was Jim, our MC who added this date as a joke, as it is considered to be the end of the world :mrgreen:

Before you start recording, it would be useful to make a 1-minute test recording, so we can check your technical settings. Here's a little help: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

I can assign you for section 46 [Post Script and Notes], and if you find it too long/difficult, just let me know, it's not a problem at all :)

Gosh .... thanx for the quick response .. it all feels so official now lololol (you'd think I was reading 60 chapters or something!!!)

Can I have a little help on "begins with" "ends with" as I've looked at the notes and where to start and stop looks a little confusing.

I'll mosey on over to the testing page!!! :)

It begins with the "Postscript" and ends with the end of the book. In my first post you can see the example intro and the outro.

Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the catalogue. It can be your real name or a nickname. We can also link to your personal webpage if you have one :)
