Stamp Collecting as a Pastime by Edward J. Nankivell (1848 - 1909).

This project is in the catalog: https://librivox.org/stamp-collecting-as-a-pastime-by-edward-j-nankivell/

Edward J. Nankivell was an early stamp collector in England. In this book he describes the hobby of stamp collecting. He was the editor of the Philatelic Record and Stamp News. ( Kangaroo692)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18204
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of Stamp Collecting as a Pastime. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Stamp Collecting as a Pastime, by Edward J. Nankivell. [Section]"

      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Section]"
      • If you wish, say:

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?

Kathrine, I wasn't planning on it when I launched it, but do you think I should include the Stamp advertisements at this end of the book?

I'll leave that up to you :) I think ads are very cool, generally, and I really like that Gutenberg has started including them when they digitize books (I didn't use to see ads at the ends of books before). On the other hand, I am not sure how well them lend themselves to being read aloud. I think I'd include them (if a listener finds them annoying, s/he can just skip them).. :)

Okay, I think I'll do that. And since they are at the end of the book, the listener wouldn't have to read them at all. And I think those would be pretty fun to read. :)

EDIT - I'll have to finish the MW after we go to the store. I should be back in about an hour.
