Mary Ann:
Do you have an alternate text for this book?
In Chapter 8 the bottom half of page 63 is missing.

Betty,

That's the only edition on Archive. Can you check it again? I seem to be getting all of p. 63 when I look online.

OK.

For some odd reason it shows up on my IPad but not my laptop so I can make it work. Thanks

Hi there! First time reader, located in Australia. I'm happy to put my hand up for a few chapters from around my neck of the woods in the Pacific. If still available, put me down for chapters 11 (meat-freezing factory) through to 17 (Samoa).

Thanks, and looking forward to working on this with you!

Cheers,

Jez.

Welcome Jez!

Couple of things as you get started. It's highly recommended that you do a 1 minute test to check your technical settings. It's not an audition, but we do have certain technical requirements for submitted recordings and it's easier to make sure those things are addressed on a short (actually, about 30 second) recording than after you have recorded a longer section for a project. Instructions are here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test One of our volunteers/admins has a library of helpful videos (including two on creating and then uploading the 1 minute test) here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Instructional_Videos

Next, I'll need to know how you want to appear in the catalog. Some people use their forum name, some use their real name, some use something else. Just let me know your preference. Here's a link to my reader page as an example: https://librivox.org/reader/3645

I've added you as a reader for sections 11-17. To be fair to other readers, we ask that readers submit their recordings within 2 months of making a claim. If you find on getting started that you have bit off more than you can chew, just let me know and we'll adjust your section assignments. You can always make further claims down the road.

I'll also take Sections 19 and 20 to finish out the Hawaii visit. Brings back many wonderful memories.

Thanks MaryAnn! I'll complete the 1min test pronto, and send through when done. Should be fine to complete these chapters within the two month window; am on holidays still after the new year and cracking through my to-do list!

In terms of catalog name, I am happy for my username JezRSH to stand. Thanks for your help!

Cheers,

Jez.

Hi MaryAnn,

Quickly dusted off the 1 min test. It's sitting in the Listeners and Editors thread here: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=63519

Let me know if there's anything else you need, otherwise I'll wait from feedback, before progressing on assigned chapters.

Cheers!

Jez.
