THE MAKER OF OPPORTUNITIES by George Gibbs (1870 - 1942).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

http://librivox.org/the-maker-of-opportunities-by-george-gibbs/


When you're tired only because you're bored; and you're bored only because it seems like there's really nothing worth doing; and you're so, so wealthy that one would think opportunity should be knocking at your door every day... you sometimes just have to tell your closer friends how fatiguing the life of he who has everything really is.... And then; you find your calling! (Tony Oliva )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38702
  • 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!

Thank you Don!

3 ready. I hoped it would turn out okay with the wind picking up outside, but it seemed like it did. We're supposed to get our first freeze tonight. We've had some awfully pleasant days this fall with record highs.

Hi Tony,

Chapters 3 and 4 are PL OK! Not a breath of wind in sight. :D

Connecticut has also been having some unseasonably warm weather this November.

Thanks Don!

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. And you too, Jo! :D

My sister and I had an easy going lunch with sandwiches at her home. But she turned it into three different kinds of gourmet sandwiches, and I shamelessly ate and ate and ate; so it had the feel of a traditional turkey day... just without the big bird! :D

Chapter 7 is ready.
