The Pit by Frank Norris (1870 - 1902).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-pit-by-frank-norris/
The Trilogy of The Epic of the Wheat includes the following novels:
THE OCTOPUS, a Story of California.
THE PIT, a Story of Chicago.
THE WOLF, a Story of Europe.
These novels, while forming a series, will be in no way connected with each other save only in their relation to (1) the production, (2) the distribution, (3) the consumption of American wheat. When complete, they will form the story of a crop of wheat from the time of its sowing as seed in California to the time of its consumption as bread in a village of Western Europe.
The first novel, "The Octopus," deals with the war between the wheat grower and the Railroad Trust; the second, "The Pit," is the fictitious narrative of a "deal" in the Chicago wheat pit; while the third, "The Wolf," will probably have for its pivotal episode the relieving of a famine in an Old World community.
( Frank Norris)
*The first book in the Trilogy, THE OCTOPUS, can be found here: https://librivox.org/the-octopus-by-frank-norris/
[*]Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4382
[*]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!

I'm sure this is a stupid question, but what is a DPL?

I'm not sure if you guys have found a reader yet, but I'd love to narrate this project in case y'all don't.

A DPL is a Dedicated Proof Listener, who proof listens all sections in a project.

Hi Delmar,
May I claim DPL?

Dusty,
FYI, a DPL is an individual (like myself) that takes on the responsibility to do ALL the proof listening for a project. :D
