'Through the Looking-Glass' by Lewis Carroll.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/through-the-looking-glass-version-6-by-lewis-carroll/
'Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There', (also known as Alice Through the Looking-Glass or simply Through the Looking-Glass) is an 1871 novel by Lewis Carroll and the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). ( wikipedia)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12
  • 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!

    • Say:

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Through the Looking-Glass' by Lewis Carroll. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Section 3 Notes:

3:43- text missing "The voices didn't join in this time as she hadn't spoken, but to her great surprise they all thought in chorus (I hope you understand what thinking in chorus means-"

12:36- heard "Supposing I couldn't find any"; text reads "Supposing it couldn't find any"
