Pagan Papers by Kenneth Grahame (1859 - 1932).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/pagan-papers-by-kenneth-grahame/
We join our thoughtful author on a dreamy stroll at dusk through the English countryside, and listen to his nonchalant, slightly scattered musings on the human condition...everything from loafing about and old book collecting, to heavier topics like what is more valuable: memory or forgetfulness and can we connect back to nature, or is it too late to do so. All these ponderings, and more, are explored within.
Published in 1898, this collection of essays is Kenneth Grahame's first complied work. His wry and witty humor, which later would be celebrated in his famous novel, The Wind in the Willows, shines through here. (Mary Kay)
    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 would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, 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? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. 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.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5319
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I'll MC, will be back in a bit with MW

ETA:
Here you go! :) I edited the intro disclaimer a bit. Let me know if anything is amiss. You will need to change the blurb before we get this to the catalogue, Goodreads is not PD :) It looks like an interesting collection of essays!

I'd be happy to reserve your section, but what would you like your display name to be?

Hi Fenman. After having a quick listen to the beginning of your section, I'm very much looking forward to hearing the rest of it. However, the link to the uploaded mp3 file hasn't appeared in the Magic Window. As I understand it, it is the file that is linked in the Magic Window that should be proof-listened as that is the version that is seen by the catalog.

I think the problem with the non-appearance in the Magic Window might be the errant hyphen before "128kb" where there should be an underscore.

As the Book Co-ordinator (Tortilla) has to also fill in a field for the length of the recording in the Magic Window, under the link you posted as above, please add the minutes and seconds. A lot of people seem to use this format:

We can fix the titling later, all of the information is more or less in the right place. I put it in the MW, go ahead and PL it. :)

Excellent! I found the writer's musings about the scarecrow a bit dark until he headed for The Dog and Duck. Perhaps partly because of the voice you gave it.

Fenman, at 6:00 you left out the phrase "I shall soon be past him"

I think that after "End of 'An Autumn Encounter'" you should add "End of Section 11". What does Tortilla think?

Best,


Barbara

Please don't say "End of Section 11," Just say "End of -essay title-"! Besides that, looks good! Thank you Barbara.
