Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 14, Feb. 3, 1880 by Various ( - ).
Harper's Young People was an illustrated weekly publication for children containing serialized stories, short stories, fiction and nonfiction, poetry, craft projects and more. This 14th issue of the serial, published on February 3, 1880, features an eclectic collection of stories sure to delight present-day children as it did the children of centuries past. This serial was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  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.

10 is PL OK, but for 9:

9:10-9:13: Failed take that needs to be removed.

Oh, and I'm going to do something odd, and request a section myself. Jill, can I record section 8? There was a section with a song before, for which I created a recording of the music, but it never got used, and the reader just read it as a poem. So I'm going to do it myself this time! I like to think I'm a reasonable singer...
