I'm out of town for the weekend and have patchy Internet so I will do my reading sample on Monday. Can I ask for sections 29 and 30 to start?

Thanks for putting this together!! I'm actually really excited to listen to all you lovely AO friend voices read to me.
That would be wonderful! Thank you SamiBrandon! But first I need to know what you would like your catalog name to be. That's the part where you say "[Chapter Name] read by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, your nickname, or something completely different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio. I can also link you to a personal website or blog.

My catalog name can just be SamiBrandon

I'm working on the one minute test now! :)

Of course! :D hmmm.... How about you do two? Which ones would you like? I also need to know what you would like your catalog name to be. That's the part where you say "[Chapter Name] read by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, your nickname, or something completely different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio.

I forgot to say I'll take sections 64 and 65.

Just edited the name I want to be my first name and last initial instead of full last name. Assuming that's ok since I haven't recorded yet. If it's too late just let me know.

If you want it to be Lisa A. than you edited it just in time! I never saw anything else and put in Lisa A.! If that's not what you want Lynnet can change it for you. Also I just noticed, you need to create a new topic the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum and post the link there. Thank you.

Lynnet,
I have several questions pertaining to a nonfiction / educational text like this. I'll try to be clear...

1) How do I handle a quote? If the quote is set apart from the text like this:

"The consequences of truth is great; therefore the judgment of it must not be negligent." -Whichcote.

Do I read: "QUOTE: The consequences of truth is great; therefore the judgment of it must not be negligent. End quote. By Whichcote." ? or do I say "by Whichcote" before I say "end quote"?

2) If the quote is set apart from the text, but there is no author of the quote listed, how do I handle that? Example from the text:

'Those first-born affinities
That fit our new existence to existing things.'


3) If there is a list of items that are numbered, do I say the number before reading the item? Or ignore the numbers? Such as:
1. Children are born persons.
2. They are not born either ...

I hope my questions make sense. Thank you for your help.

Rachel

All excellent questions, but first RELAX!!!
For many things, there is no right or wrong; there may be a standard practice but sometimes it's down to the reader, or up to the Book coordinator if he/she wants to stipulate for consistency.

As for attributed quotes, yes, you say "quote... End quote" - unless you start to feel as if that's all you're saying and it's annoying (both to you and any potential listener) - a judgement call.

If there's no attribution, but maybe just something everybody say, just read it as is, without the quotes.

For lists, it's usual to read the numbers first, but if you don't, it doesn't matter too much ch.

A couple of other things that may crop up in non-fiction works:
Graphs: these are usually discussed in the text, so you can either skip over it, or say "there follows a graph showing..." But it's not your job to interpret the graph.

Tables:there's a lot of discussion about how to read tables . I would probably follow the guideline for graphs, but some people say you should read everything in the table. I'd say it's a case by case decision and you can decide yourself, or ask the BC.

Offensive language: yes, sometimes we come across offensive language, which perhaps wasn't offensive at the time it was written. This should be read as written unless the text says, for example, n- or d-, which it often does. We do not censor. If you come across something you're not comfortable reading, then we suggest you relinquish your claim to that section. You wouldn't be the first and someone else may be ok reading it.

I addressed footnotes in response to an earlier question

The biggest rule is THIS IS FUN 8-) so relax and enjoy!
Help us finish:
Hinduism and Buddhism Volume 3 10+ sections remaining
My Danish Sweetheart 2 5 sections remaining
The Castle of Twilight 1 sections remaining
Prince and Heretic 10+ sections remaining

That would be wonderful! Thank you englishhomeeducator! I'll reserve your sections right away! But first, you need to complete a one minute test to make sure your tech specs are OK. Here are the instructions. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test When you're done please post a link to your test in the listeners wanted forum. I also need to know what you would like your catalog name to be. That's the part where you say "[Chapter Name] read by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, your nickname, or something completely different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio. I can also link you to a personal website or blog.

Thank you.
Could I also do "Part 5 Chapter 17: Geography" please?


You could say "Read by Antonia" at the beginning.


I will get my one minute test done ASAP.

Very excited, many thanks!

Antonia
