Joyous Days Then and Now by Harry Lee Marriner (1872 - 1914).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/joyous-days-then-and-now-by-harry-lee-marriner/
This is a volume of poetry by newspaperman-poet Harry Lee Marriner, published in 1910. Many of the poems are on the joyous days then, reflecting on childhood and the simpler times, with a measure of nostalgia and pathos, which the author uses to advantage for his poetry. ( 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/joyousdaysthenno00marr
    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

      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Harry Lee Marriner, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish. Note that these poems dont really have titles, so please just use the first couple of words of the poem as title. Thank you!

      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):

      Need noise-cleaning?
