My Queen: A Weekly Journal for Young Women. Issue 1, Sept 1900 by Lurana Sheldon (1862 - 1945).

This is the first issue of a wonderful weekly dime magazine for young women. They each contain a novella following the adventures of Marion Marlowe, a beautiful and ambitious farmer’s daughter, who goes to the great metropolis in search of fame and fortune. Each issue/story is complete in itself, and details a challenging episode in her life. Marion was "Only a Farmer's Daughter" who went from "Farm to Fortune". All are written by the prolific :Lurana Sheldon using various pen names, usually Grace Shirley. The stories are quite entertaining, fun to read and happily avoid the 'she married and lived happily ever after' theme. Marion, while very much a woman, is not that type at all. The chapters are short, easy to read and suited to those just getting their feet wet in LibriVox. Besides the main novella, each issue contains an Advice Column, where she responds to anguished letters from young ladies with a myriad of personal problems. She does not shy at shooting straight from the hip in her answers whether to moral, ethical, family or just social etiquette questions. These Q&A provide an interesting insight into life in the 1900's and what was considered appropriate for girls, women and men. ( phil chenevert)

Hi Phil,
I'd love to read the advice column! However I was thinking a bit of how it could be read so it's clear when it changes from question to answer to question again. This might be a silly proposal, but could it be a mini DR of sorts, with 1 person reading all the questions and another all the answers? If you're up for that, I'd love to read either part, and will edit the parts together. It would just need a second reader.
Let me know what you think?

Yep, this should be fun and easy. I will read the intro to the letters column and then read each question, pausing a bit between each then post a link to the file in the forum. You will record the answers as Grace Shirley, the all wise one, edit 'em together, then upload the file. Agreed? See any problems in this?

Yes, that sounds good. We could do a voice credit each, "questions read by Phil" "and answers read by Foon".

Fun fun fun! :D

Please note that I have modified the first post that explains what to say at the beginning of each section or chapter. I had left some unnecessary stuff in there and not specified that you should say thename of the chapter. It should be clear but if there are questions please let me know. thanks - your semi-vigilant book coordinator.
