Oooh, your reading is nice and spooky! My hair stood on end at that last sentence!

Your recording is in the Magic Window marked PL OK!

And I've also added your URL on your Reader Page, here: https://librivox.org/reader/15103
Many thanks, Rapunzelina! Wow, and I've got my own page! Very cool, that is.

The perks of being a Librivox reader :D You can also access your page from your name-link in any Magic Window. Your page lists all projects you read for, and it can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing projects under the "Reader section details" link

There's a "game" I find amusing, where you see your author match! The author in the database with the same number as your reader number:

Hi!

Would it be possible to request to PL something in this collection? I've not PLd before (but read all the info and done the quiz!)

Not sure if the collections work this way so no bother if not!

Hi! Did you read my mind?! It so happens I was thinking these last couple of days, that I would like some help with PLing in this project. In general, projects that need proof-listeners have a ~ in their subject line (thread title), or you can see if there's already an assigned DPL in the Magic Window, above the sections table. For this project, I've assigned myself as the DPL, but as I said, I was just thinking how it would be nice if I had some help :D Would you like to start with what's in the Magic Window as Ready for PL, (currently Dale's contribution above) and if you enjoy the experience you can think about offering to DPL for all the sections?
A quick PL turnaround helps move things along smoothly, especially for readers, to know if they need to fix anything while still available to do so, or that their recording is PL OK so they can move on to other readings. I consider a good PL turnaround to be within a week at the most. Let me know if this works for you, and if so, have fun! Dale's reading and choice of stories are excellent!!!

Thank you, Dale! Alix has expressed an interest in PLing (above) so we'll wait to see what she thinks about starting her PL journey with one of your recordings, which I think makes for a perfect place to start it :9:

Well, I wasn't *going* to mention my psychic abilities, but as you brought it up... ;)

Yes, this works for me! Ah, I had read about the '~' sign but managed to forget (good start). Also I scrolled through the header post and completely failed to check for DPL in the magic window. *sigh* I'm usually more observant, I promise!

But yes, very happy to start with Dale's contribution and go from there.

A week shouldn't be a problem for me at all. Can probably get it done before the weekend's out.

Thank you so much Rapunzelina!

I'm sure this is the number one newcomer question, but how do I go about participating in selecting a story or being assigned a story to read and then submitting my recording?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Welcome to Librivox!

It depends on the project you'd like to participate in, and you can find what you need in each project's first post. This one is an open collection, so you can choose the story you want to read. It has to be in the public domain (which generally means published more than 95 years ago - before 1925). Gutenberg.org is a trusted site for texts :)
I don't want to make my answer a long one. But feel free to ask if you need more clarifications. You can also check the information on your welcome Email. In fact, please do! It also offers guidance for your first sound check, a one-minute test, to check your recording setup :D Or, if you've lost your welcome email, here's the direct link for instructions http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
