The Golden Road by L. M. Montgomery

We've completed The Story Girl and I can't resist going on to the sequel!
  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are ?up for grabs.? Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you?d like to read (include the blue number, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    Target completion date of this project: October 31, 2006 ? but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it?ll go back to the pool. There?s no shame in this; we?re all volunteers and things happen.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Gutenberg e-text: http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext95/goldr10.txt
  5. Please claim chapters (the blue numbers)!

OK, I have tried to resist but it was futile. I would like 4, 5, 19, and 20, please. I am helpless against L.M. Montgomery and all her works.
