Billy Bunny and his friends by David Cory (1872 - 1966).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/billy-bunny-and-his-friends-by-david-cory/

Volunteers outside the USA: David Cory died in 1966. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies. <p>
The story of Billy Bunny and his friends and their adventures together. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/billybunnyhisfri00cory
  • 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!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

I can MC this for you.

This appears to be your first solo. As a soloist you are the also the BC (book coordinator) for this project (see links below with instructions and details).

The MW is started and tested.

You will need to select a few key words by the time the project is complete and before we put this into the Librivox catalog.

I have made a few edits to the first post.

How do I post the uploaded file into the MW? In the meantime I am just going to leave the link here, for safekeeping.

I am glad you figured it out. Please continue to post in the forum thread as well as updating the MW. Doing both increased the visibility for your DPL.

Section 1 (Chapters 1-5) is PL OK.

I apologize for letting this linger. I was hoping that the DPL would reappear, but they haven't been active lately. I am removing terryben as DPL and adding the ~ flag to the forum title. I will PL your sections until someone volunteers to DPL.

Please update the section title in the MW to reflect that fact that you recorded more than just Chapter 1 in the first section.

I'm so glad to have found this project, since I enjoyed this reader's voice so much in her contributions to the Boy Scout stories book. So I hope it finishes!

I'm not able to DPL any longer, but if there is any way to help encourage new Solo-ers when projects become challenging, I'd love to help in that way.

PM's welcome re same.
Vision issues and routine, long travel make audbiobooks a MUST for me-- THANK YOU. Apologies in advance for ypto's in my posts.

Thanks Maria!

I will adopt this one please. I presume Helen will be my DPL as I dropped the other book... I will let her know.
