Here I go again. embarking on a new Soloproject in Swedish. The project is a short Novel, and an early work, by one of Sweden's most famous Authors in the 19th Century.
Illiterati has promised to be PL for this project, and she will do the PL, time permitting, and I have said that there is no need to be in a hurry here. So what is needed is a MC.
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:
[*]Target completion date: June 30 2009Viktor Rydberg (1828-1895) was one of Sweden's most important authors in the 19th century, between Almqvist and Strindberg. The novel De vandrande djäknarne constitutes the former half of volume III of fourteen in Skrifter av Viktor Rydberg ("collected works"), which appeared in the decades following the author's death.
The Novel was first published in serial form in a daily Newspaper in Sweden under the pseudonym “Agricola”, and tells about how two Students, during a Summer, wandering in the country, and about their Pranks and their meetings with people, and how this Summer changes their lives. (Summary by Runeberg.org and Lars Rolander)

[*]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?
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 will be opened up to a group project as soon as a Book Coordinator can be 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 have it re-instated).
