The important thing is to read what interests you. Be a bit selfish in this because longer books become a real slog when you're not quite half-way through. You have to enjoy the material. It gives you push you need when it feels like no one else cares about what your recording and you haven't even got a proof listener yet.Plodmore wrote: ↑August 14th, 2019, 2:08 pmThanks! Speaking of saints, the now Blessed John Henry Newman will become Saint John Henry Newman on October 13. In appreciation for him, I am thinking of initiating a project of recording some of his sermons—I have a book in mind. I hope to get started this next week and complete it this fall. I’m unsure whether to make it collaborative or a solo. So, if you have any advice, I am all ears.
But things come. And you work a little bit and people see the book's title rise to the top of a thread with every completed chapter and then someone says to him or herself, "That looks interesting." Or "I want to help."
And if you make a book collaborative, you can always do the chapters yourself.
I wouldn't recommend a collaboration as a first step as a book coordinator, however. Too much fussing about with data entry until you get used to it after having done your own entries.
For myself, I'd like to share this one: https://archive.org/details/a546752700barruoft/page/n9
It's not as compelling, perhaps, or comprehensive, but it's a simple start for the reader and listener.
I'd do half of the book I cite as a commitment.
