Birds and Nature, Vol. IX, No 3, March 1901 .

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/birds-and-nature-vol-ix-no-3-march-1901-by-various/

"Birds and Nature" was a monthly publication of the Nature Study Publishing Company of Chicago. It includes short poems and brief descriptions of birds, animals and other natural subjects with accompanying color plates. The magazine was published from 1897-1907 under the various titles, "Birds," "Birds and all Nature," "Birds and Nature" and "Birds and Nature."

In June 1900, “Birds and All Nature” was changed from “Birds and All Nature” to "Nature and Art" for a single issue (Vol VIII, No. 1). The title was changed again for the following issue in September 1900 to “Birds and Nature,” and this was kept through the remaining years of publication. - Summary by J. M. Smallheer
    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? For this project, we ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1 month 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 one month, your sections may be 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 one month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/47489
    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.

Why? Why are the interesting sections always the longest here? :roll:

Could I read section 2 About Parrots please? It may take longer than the 1 month deadline though since the trees outside my house are inhabited by really, really noisy cicadas at the moment... :?
Cheers,
Ava.

About Parrots is yours, Ava. Too bad it's not parrots rather than cicadas in the trees, although they would be pretty noisy to record over as well. ;) I'm generally pretty lenient about the 1 month deadline, so no worries.

Jo-

Here's section 9 -

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/birdsandnaturemar1901_09_various_128kb.mp3
Track length: 1:48

No problem with the delay. We finally got some sunny weather after 28 overcast days and nearly 8" of rain in July. Lots of things needed catching up outside around the house so I wasn't lacking for things to do.
