Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 15, Feb. 10, 1880 by Various ( - )
Harper's Young People was an illustrated weekly publication for children containing delightful serialized stories, short stories, fiction and nonfiction, poetry, and more. This 15th issue of the serial, published on February 10, 1880, features stories of Valentine's Day generosity, a royal child wedding, a hero dog, and how our modern calendar came to be. This serial was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/harpers-young-people-vol-01-issue-15-by-various/

  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.

    .
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Alcohol and Maths don't mix. So never drink and derive.

I'd like to take Section 5 please.

What is the common practice where there are multiple sections in a chapter? Sorry this type of a chapter is new to me.

Kindest Regards,
Sunbeard

Yes, you may certainly take Section 5! We're glad to have you! When there are multiple stories in one section just read through the usual introduction:
START of recording (Intro)
"Section [number] of Harper's Young People, Volume 1, Issue 15, February 10, 1880. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

Say:
"Harper's Young People, Volume 1, Issue 15, February 10, 1880. [Section title]" (If the section you're reading contains more than one story, please read the story titles as you read each story.)
When you get to the "[Section title]" part, read the title of the first story, "A Hunting Adventure". Then when you've completed that story, read the title of the second story, "Eagles and their Ways" and read that story.

Make sense? Let me know if you have further questions! And thanks!

Jill

Makes perfect sense. I probably wouldn't have asked if I'd read all of the instructions first :) Sorry for making you work harder than you should. :thumbs:
