The Adopting of Rosa Marie by Carroll Watson Rankin (1864 - 1945).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/the-adopting-of-rosa-marie-by-carroll-watson-rankin/

This is an abandoned solo project brought back as a group project. Carolin is acting as book coordinator!
In this charming girl's book we meet again the four chums of Dandelion Cottage. Their friendship knit closer than ever by their summer at playing house, the girls enlarge their activity by mothering a pretty little Indian baby.

"Those who have read Dandelion Cottage will need no urge to follow further. . . . A lovable group of four children, happily not perfect, but full of girlish plans and pranks and a delightful sense of humor."

( from the book)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/46059
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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 may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is 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 see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
  • 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!

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Adopting of Rosa Marie, by Carroll Watson Rankin. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

Hey thanks Anne! I love these books. In the long run I want to record all four that are on Gutenberg. I already have a few chapters almost ready to upload. So as soon as our DPL comes along, we can roll.

You can upload files without a DPL - I find it's easier to advertise successfully for one when there is something waiting to be done

Chapter 5 at last. I'm hoping to do quite a few chapters this week, but we'll see how life works out.

I have a small comment for section 5 (though it is up to you whether you do anything about it) :)
00:38 - sounds like Audacity is swallowing a sound "MercThey'd sleep through"

Otherwise it sounds good :)
