A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens
Hi Folks, it looks as if Wolvrin got too busy to keep up with this project. ExEmGe has kindly offered to take over. Please see his post here: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=54329#54329 for updates.
The Magic Box (added Nov. 8th)
ALL chapters are claimed -- just waiting for names to be added:
I had to jump in before someone else claimed this project to coordinate - besides, how else could I guarantee I would get to read the opening words myself?! :) This is my favorite Dickens book, and I'm betting there will be plenty of people interested in reading this...
Target completion date: March 31, 2006
Project Gutenberg e-text: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/98/98.txt
The book is broken up into 3 "books", and each has a number of chapters; I thought about grouping chapters together as some are not very long, but decided against it - hopefully more people will get involved if the amount of reading is not very long.
The Roman Numerals are what is used in the Gutenberg Text so I included those and they should help you find your spot, but for the file names, please use regular numbers. I suggest you read it out as "Book 1 Chapter 3", etc.
File Name Format (using part numbers, for example, this would correspond to Book 2 Chapter 7, which has a part number of 13 as listed above):
ID3 Tag Formats:
Title/Name: Bk2 Ch03 - name of chapter
Artist: Charles Dickens
Album: A Tale of Two Cities
Track Number: part number, as listed above
File Format: stereo, 128kpbs, MP3
