Concerning Isabel Carnaby by Ellen Thorneycroft Fowler (1860 - 1929).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/concerning-isabel-carnaby-by-ellen-thorneycroft-fowler/
Isabel Carnaby returns from India. She starts looking for a place in upper class British society. At the begining, people are sceptical of her because she is an orphan. But she will surprise everybody. ( 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!): https://archive.org/details/concerningisabe04fowlgoog
  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.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    Please note: each page is about 2 minutes of finished recording.



    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!

    Need noise-cleaning?

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    If you'd like, add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

Dear future Mc,
I would like to let you know that, although the etext is from archive.org- and sometimes etexts from that sight are not accessible and I cannot make the mw- this is a very accessible text and I can make the mw as usual. I thiought this might be a considuration. I may not have had to start it, but I fell in love with this book the moment I started reading it- so I hope you will to.
Stav.

I finaly got around to fill in the mw. The etext was rather accessible but there are some things I could not know:
1. in which page chapter 7 starts?
2. What is the name of chapter 16?
3. Which is the last page (I guessed by the number on my computer, but am not sure about it).
However, I filled in what I could. Sorry it took so long.

I was wrong. The chapter for which I do not know the starting page is 8, not 7. Sorry.
