The Adventures of Peter Cottontail by Thornton W. Burgess (1874 - 1965).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-adventures-of-peter-cottontail-version-2-by-thornton-w-burgess/
This is the story of Peter Rabbit, a mischievous, but cautious, lagomorph who lives in the Green Meadows. Peter Rabbit begins his adventures with a quest for a new name, since his name is far too common for his taste. Having a new name is not quite what he thought it would be, however, and soon he is on to new exploits like outsmarting Reddy Fox and discovering where all his friends spend the winter. This tale co-stars Reddy Fox, Jerry Muskrat, Unc' Billy Possum, Jimmy Skunk, Ol' Mistah Buzzard, Bowser the Hound, and many more of Thornton W. Burgess' delightful characters. ( Jill Engle)

  • 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!

I have some other PL duties I'm working on right now, so it may be a few days before I can spend much time PL'ing here. If you're okay with that, I would be happy PL'ing.

Hooray! that'd be great! I won't be able to start recording for a few days so it sounds like we'll be in sync. Looking forward to more Burgess :D

cheers

Okey doke, here we go. Section 1 (length 12:22) is now uploaded.

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/adventuresofpetercottontail_1_burgess.mp3

Glad the file names have been streamlined (no more 128kb etc) as Mr. Burgess does love his looooooong titles. :)

cheers

Actually, my mistake, _128kb does need to be added, I normally do it when I add the MW to the project post. Don't worry about it on this one, I can change it, but you will need to add it to the other sections. Sorry, I am normally a lot better than that. :oops:

Please don't don't don't apologise. Honestly, you are my favourite project coordinator - consistent, diligent, and a sense of humour. I'll add the _128kb from now on ... no problemo :lol:

My apologies - I posted to another project and put the wrong MC contact when uploading. I selected icequeen instead of lynnet.

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/mysteriesoflondon2_016_reynolds_128kb.mp3

I've since reposted correctly, but I'm not sure how/if the wrong one has to be removed.

oops

No, it doesn't need to be removed. If Lynne wants to grab it out of my folder, she can do it, or she can leave it there until she catalogs. It will be safe and sound there. Thanks for letting me know! :D
