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:

edit me

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):
tale_of_two_cities_13_dickens.mp3

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

You may either post a link to your completed files here in the forum or email them to me by clicking this link:
http://www.yousendit.com/?recipient=wolvrin@gmail.com

Please include the following with your file:
- Running time of your file in the format hour/minute/second (i.e. 00:32:14)
- Your name as you would like it to appear on the catalog page
- URL of your homepage if you have one you would like linked to your name on the catalog page
- File size (in MB) of your MP3 file

Please check the Recording Notes thread before recording:
http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430
If this is your first recording, you'll also find this useful:
http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/NewbieGuideToRecording

Looks great, wolvrin, I was hoping someone would take this on! I've added you to the "to come" section of the catalog page. I'll probably sign up for something eventually but I need to get caught up on some other stuff first! I like the idea of leaving it in small chapters, it'll be a good project for new readers.

Excellent choice, and so nicely organized. Like Annie, I'll be signing up for some chapters after I get through some of my backlog of reading!

I want to be a part of this one too, but I've still got two chapters of War Of The Worlds yet to complete. I'll be back tomorrow though!

wolvrin,

I too will be a rookie-recorder, but I look forward to reading.

As things progress I may sign up for more chapters if needed.

Thanks,
