Holiday House by Catherine Sinclair (1800 - 1864).

This project is complete and can now be found at http://librivox.org/holiday-house-by-catherine-sinclair/
Extremely popular when it was published, this book was one of the first to include fairy-tales which were not only didactic but also enjoyable and entertaining. But bewair! These are not only fairy-tails! They have lessons to teach and can be viewed as a historical document telling us very vividly about the time they were written. Please read carefully and, most importantly, have fun. ( Stav Nisser )
    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/32811
    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.

      Note: length has been measured by the number of pages each chapter contains. Please note that each page is about 2 minutes of recording.

      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!

      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] of Holiday House . This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Holiday House , by Catherine Sinclair . [Chapter]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      128 kbps MP3
      holidayhouse_##_sinclair_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. holidayhouse_01_sinclair_128kb.mp3)

Hi Miss Stav. I will set this up for you soon. :D

EDIT: OK, all ready to go. I will leave this in the Launch Pad for a few days to look for a proof listener. Also, I will post claims into the Magic window for you. Let me know if there is anything else you may need.

I'm sure Miss Stav will say yes linny, but let's wait for her to give the official approval. Looks like a very interesting book. :D

Please note that in the initial project post the sample file name indicates 129kb instead of 128kb. The one is bold is fine, the error is in the one before "(all lower-case)".

Hello Stav,
I noticed you titled section 0 as dedication and preface. I did not see a dedication. There is a small quote on the cover page. Is that what you want read?

Yes. I called it dedication because it begins with "Dedicated to the lady Dianna Boyle".

Stav, I missed that. Thank you! There is a page between that one and the preface which has a quote from Cowper. I will add that as well.

OK, David. I deviated from the intro slightly but I believe I managed to get everything recorded and in the right place. As always, I'm happy to make any changes.
