Bunny Brown and his Sister Sue at Christmas Tree Cove by Laura Lee Hope (Pseudonym) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/bunny-brown-and-his-sister-sue-at-christmas-tree-cove-by-laura-lee-hope/
Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue were featured in a series of 20 books for young children published by the Stratemeyer Syndicate from 1916-1930. In this adventure, first published in 1920, Bunny and Sue lose a valuable possession belonging to their mother. They have many adventures and misadventures during a family boating vacation to Christmas Tree Cove. (Introduction by S. McGaughey)
  • Target completion date: December 31, 2010
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/20134
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): Standard, * special consideration for 1st full book by 10 year old reader—ie—if it meets 90% rule and doesn’t change the meaning, I’m cool with it.

    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:

    (Admin link)
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of [Book title]. - 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 [your name]"
    • Say:
      " [Chapter] Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue at Christmas Tree Cove by Laura Lee Hope"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue at Christmas Tree Cove by Laura Lee Hope. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain.
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [Name]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"


    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue at Christmas Tree Cove by Laura Lee Hope."

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename
    bunnybrownchristmastreecove_##_hope.mp3
  • Example ID3 V2 tags
    Title: ## - [Chapter title]
    Artist: Laura Lee Hope
    Album: Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue at Christmas Tree Cove
  • Instructions for soloist: transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org

Hi Sean,
Were you looking for an MC - or planning to do it yourself? If the first, I'll be happy to help out.

I'd love to have you MC Anna. Lately I've been enjoying Librivox from a reader's perspective. We have 2 chapters done. I may be able to post them tonight. Thanks.

All set! I know I don't have to send you your password for the MW anymore, at least, Sean! :D

All we need now is a DPL. Let's wait in the Launch Pad for a bit, to see whether we can find one.

Have fun recording, Rose and Sean.
