Quit Your Worrying! by George Wharton James (1858 - 1923).

This project is now in the catalogue. All audio files can be found on our catalogue page:
https://librivox.org/quit-your-worrying-by-george-wharton-james/

"People will worry, they do worry. What they want to know and need to learn is how to quit worrying. This I have attempted herein to show, with the full knowledge, however, that no one person's recipe can infallibly be used by any other person—so that, in reality, all I have tried to do is to set forth the means I have followed to teach myself the delightful lesson of serenity, of freedom from worry, and thereby to suggest to receptive minds a way by which they may possibly attain the same desirable end." ( George Wharton James)

  • 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'll MC this for you. I will set it up later today.

I would also like to be DPL if you don't have one lined up.

Ok! All set up. I'll leave us in the Launch Pad for a day or so for people to see what is coming along.

Thanks a lot, Bev.
I've just got two sections to finish on my current solo before I make a start.

I've forgotten what I should say for the first recording: obviously not "Chapter 0". There's a foreword but before that there's a readers' "note" and a poem. Is it
"Introduction to ……." ?

Thanks.

Please say "Section 0" first, and "End of Section 0" last. That gives readers a quick numerical reference as to where they are in the book, by listening to just the very beginning or the very end of a file. After that you can say "Poem" and read it, then "Foreword" and read that. Personally I wouldn't read the note or the contents but that is your choice.

Don't forget to fill in the titles in the MW.

No, I agree. Should I continue with "Chapter 1" etc or "Section 1" or both?

Continue with "Chapter 1" alone. After all that is what they are titled in the book and it makes sense after the initial introduction. Some people do say "Chapter 0" for the first one but I think it sounds odd.
