Stories by Foreign Authors - German Authors Volume 1 by Various ( - ). Translated by Various ( - )

Readers in death + 50/70 countries: Please note, Rudolph (or Rudolf) Lindau died in 1977.
A collection of short stories, originally written in German, but here translated into English. The stories take us to Egypt and the shadow of Vesuvius, as well as the German homeland. We look into the world of books and that of music and we delve into the depths of the human heart in love and loss. ( Lynne Thompson)
    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/5431
    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.

You certainly can! It'll be too long for one section, but make the break wherever seems appropriate, preferably less than an hour per section.

I just realized that I forgot to say"by Heinrich Zschokke From Tales by Heinrich Zschokke, translated by Parke Godwin" with the rest of the title on section 8. Do you want me to redo that part?

Sorry- Joseph
