( Ed Humpal)
    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/47476
    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.

Readers: there are a couple really long chapters, including one I've split into 4 sections. The procedure will be the same as for the previous volumes: if a mid-chapter section begins with a specified poem, begin with the editor's comments introducing the poem. If reading the first section, read the title of the volume, followed by the poem, "The Eagle's Song," then say "Chapter One....."

We have been following the text exactly. The editor comments, gives the title, offers the poem, and identifies the author at the end of the poem.

I have had the pleasure of listening to so many wonderful readers over the last two years of this project. Hope to see you again, and newcomers welcome, as always!

Thanks.

Ed,

I've had the honor of contributing to each volume of this wonderful series. I can't let the final one pass by without making a contribution.

May I claim Section 3?

Thank you!

Greg
