Joan Thursday by Louis Joseph Vance (1879 - 1933).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/joan-thursday-by-louis-joseph-vance/
Minor potboiler is a change of pace from the author of the Lone Wolf detective series. Tenement beauty (and wannabe stage-star) Joan Thursby seeks to raise herself up out of the gutter in 1900's New York City, in a precursor to superior soaps like Stella Dallas a decade later. Full of the kind of purple prose common to writers prone to overuse of the thesaurus, and leavened with a bit of humor, the basic story is still entertaining for fans of low-brow lit.

  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/36502
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

8-11 up in MW.

I kept getting an error message from Chrome telling me that this was an unsafe site (red slash through the https) Saturday evening. Also, the main LV page appeared to have reverted to HTML format. Anybody else have this problem?

You appear to have uploaded your unedited file by mistake.

Our "security certificate" had lapsed and had to be renewed or at least that's my assumption. Our tech guru handled the problem but for several hours we were not officially recognized as a "safe site," hence the warning.
