The Day before Yesterday by Richard Middleton (1882 - 1911).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/the-day-before-yesterday-by-richard-middleton/
This is a volume of short stories and essays by Richard Middleton. The British poet and author wrote a large number of short pieces during his life, which are today still as entertaining as they were then. Published 1912, one year after Middleton's death, this volume collects some of the best specimens of his prose. ( Carolin)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/daybeforeyesterd00middrich
    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!

Hi Carolin,

After the last project finished a lot quicker than expected, I find myself needing a new project to be DPL for, and this looks perfect!

32 and 33 are PL OK (but very weird... Illiterate people are the most intelligent? 2+2=4 is some kind of propaganda?)

As for 31:

4:30: 'recipe' should be 'receipt'

Yes some strange stories! I knew I was reading the word wrong but thought it must be a typing error. Maybe it's just not a phrase I am familiar with but the cookery reference implied recipe? No??? I have no problem changing it but wanted to double check! :hmm: Here's the line:

And for those who are not fortunate enough to number in their acquaintance children of the right age and humour, here, as the cookery books say, is a tried receipt.

Thanks/Annyiee
