Europe and Elsewhere by Mark Twain (1835 - 1910).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/europe-and-elsewhere-by-mark-twain/
This collection of articles came from Mark Twain's travels and experiences abroad. While many had been previously published, there also were many that had never before seen the light of day...which one reviewer said had never been Twain's intent for them, having consigned them to obscurity. With introductory essays by Brander Matthews and Albert Bigelow Paine, the book paints a clear picture of the complexity and wide variety of Samuel L. Clemens' thinking, where it originated and how it developed.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/completeworksofm20twai/page/n13/mode/2up
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    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!

Hi John,
The Archive version shows the book was published in 1923 the same as the other source. It's fine to use, I've updated the initial post.

I can MC for you. Do you have a DPL in mind? Are you sure you want word perfect? It's much more difficult to find a PLer and we generally only see word perfect for scientific or religious text.

Thanks for your offer!!
However I do have to insist on word perfect PL Because that’s the standard that I set back in 2006 when I started this series ...Wayback then...
Ut I totally understand your reluctance to go that route...
I know it’s more difficult but… I need to maintain that standard! Thanks again for the offer!
Iit’s very much appreciated

Just as a drive-by side note:

After all the stuff you have done on Mark Twain, you can still find new material. :shock:
It fascinates me.
Cheers,
Ava.

John - That standard and your readings are wonderful - I wish I could PL just to be a part of it, but vision issues makes it difficult. Good luck and thanks for all you have done (you are Mark Twain to me). Cheryls

Hi!
I would be interested in doing word-perfect Proof-Listening for this project. I know I am a new volunteer and I don't have that much experience but I think I could be very helpful and enjoy carefully reading through an amazing work by Mark Twain. I would understand if you would rather have a more experienced DPL. Just let me know if you are interested!

Thank you Carissa!
We all have to start somewhere!
I would very much appreciate your help.

One thing to note... since this is a published work and not from Gutenberg Project… If there are any typos, I won’t say SIC ... I’ll just make the correction, assuming that it has to be the way it was intended.
As soon as my last project Is published, I’ll start sending the sections in.
👍😃

My internet is not very helpful right now. I can't get you entered as DPL but I'll try again later.

Once I get you entered your forum name will show at the top of the MW. As DPL, you will be responsible for changing the workflow status (last box) from Ready to PL to PL OK or See PL notes.

The MW requires a separate password from your LV password. Here is how you can set that up. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ This will NOT work until I get you added as DPL.

Please ask if you have any questions along the way.
