The Wealth of Nations, Book 5 by Adam Smith.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-wealth-of-nations-book-5-by-adam-smith/
An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist Adam Smith, published on March 9, 1776 during the Scottish Enlightenment. It is a clearly written account of political economy at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, and is widely considered to be the first modern work in the field of economics. (from Wikipedia)
  • Target completion date: December 31, 2010
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3300
  • 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).

    ===========================================
    MAGIC WINDOW:

    (BC admin)
    ============================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter ## of The Wealth of Nations, Book 5. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by Stephen Escalera"
    • Say:
      "The Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith. Book 5 Chapter ##, part ## Chapter Title"
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter ## of The Wealth of Nations, Book 5. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain.
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by Stephen Escalera"
    • Say:
      " The Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith. Chapter ##, Chapter Title"
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of Chapter ##"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Book 5 of The Wealth of Nations - Of The Revenue Of The Sovereign Or Commonwealth."
    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

Thanks for MCing, Barry. I'm definitely glad to have reached this last book. It's been a great read, but I'm ready for something different! :)

Just a note to let you know that I generally prefer not to mark any sections complete until they have been proofed. Again, just an FYI for you and anyone who decides to proof.

And Section 1 is uploaded and ready for a listening ear.

Let the end begin! :)

Just checking in to say that I haven't abandoned this project. Life has thrown in several hurdles over the past few months, the least of which is a broken mic. Am hoping to pick things back up again this month.
