Edited
Year of birth of Grigore Alexandrescu it was 1810.
I'm sorry, I wrote 1812. Right now I corrected this mistake.

Hi Livia,

How wonderful to have a poem in Romanian to add to the 13th Anniversary Collection! :) Yes, your source is fine. We'll look forward to hearing your reading!

Thanks also for translating the title of the poem, which allowed me to do a quick search on the web about the comet of 1857. The appearance of this comet created quite a stir. The Art Institute of Chicago has a lithograph drawn by Daumier in 1857, with two panicked Parisians looking through a telescope, and the one saying to the other "Adelaide, Adelaide. I think I can see the comet coming!! Oh my God...this is the end of the world...how annoying..." http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/3400

We’re getting a nice assortment of recordings for this project. It will be a few days before I have a chance to proof listen. Looking forward to doing that soon. :)

A quick suggestion for anyone looking for a project to contribute: Missing Page Thirteen by Anna Katherine Green http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3071 I recorded it for another project, and don't have time to redo it here. It comes in at about 95 minutes, so needs to be split over two sections.

This might be a little nuts, but could I do a selection of 1913 New York Times Stories that all have 13 in the headline?

Hi Colleen, I should think that would be fine. The only thing i would ask is that you select, say, up to three articles, and record each of them on a separate file, with intro etc. That way, we won't have trouble with the cataloging.

Best wishes,

Would they be combined into one entry? I don't want to take up more than my share since everyone is only supposed to do one.

I found several articles that would be good but they are all very short, that's why I was asking about doing "an assortment" or a "a selection" - I think all of them together would take less than 10 minutes, definitely less than 15.

Colleen, I understand exactly what you want to do and why. Your motivation for wanting to keep your short articles together to respect of the one-submission rule is admirable, but I'm still going to suggest you separate them.

I know that the current LibriVox Management Dashboard won't take multiple authors, and my guess is that sources are treated similarly. So, let's just make it easy for you, as the reader, and me as BC. Since I am the one who made the rule concerning number of submissions in the first place, as BC I am also, therefore, tasked with interpreting the rules; :wink: and I am open to n a "triplet" of related articles, with different file names, being called "one contribution." We already have one triplet (Shakespeare Sonnet XIII read in German, English and Spanish, each with different file names.).

But just to cover all our bases, why don't you post the links to the articles you want to read here, and let me take a look at them. That will help me see what might be the most expeditious way of handling them.

That is correct. There can only be one author cited and one source linked per section. :)
