Great! I'm happy to assign it to you as soon as I get the chance. You can start working on section 7 as soon as you're ready.

i have a question. The MW divides this book into sections. The book has no chapter numbers.
Therefore, in the intro (and outro) should I say Chapter 7 as the recording notes indicate, or shall I say section 7?

Thanks for your question! I forgot to change the default wording to fit this project. I've fixed it now. Take another look at that first post, and let me know if you still need help.

Thanks, Dana! I've created your reader page and updated the MW. Here is your personal reader page-----> https://librivox.org/reader/13147 This lists everything you're currently working on (as of now, only this book), and will eventually also include everything you've ever completed.

I've just had a quick listen to the introduction and ending of section 15. We don't yet have a DPL (dedicated proof listener) for this project, so you may have to wait a short while for a full proof listen. I'll go ahead and place an advertisement for a DPL, but if we don't get one right away, I'll try to give this section a full listen myself in the next few days.

In the meantime, there is one edit I'd like you to make to your intro. Looking again at the introduction instructions:
  • "Section [number] of Stories of the First American Animals. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
  • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
  • Say:
    "Stories of the First American Animals, by George Langford. [Section title]"
You have done the first bullet perfectly. The second is optional, and you've chosen to skip it, which is fine. But the third needs to be in place. In this case, the section title will be "Manatus the Merman of the Chesapeake Part 1."

You can wait to make this change until after you've received the rest of your feedback, if you like, in case there are other changes needed. And if you're ready to continue on with recording the next section while you wait on feedback, that's totally fine!

Thanks again for joining this project. I hope you're enjoying it so far! :D

Welcome! I'm happy to assign this to you, and I'm pleased that you picked this project for your first contribution. To set up your reader page, I'll need to know what name you'd like to be credited as. Many (not all) volunteers use their real name, but you can also use your forum login name or a pseudonym if you like. I can also link your reader page to a blog or website, if you have one.

Thank you! It looks like it'll be a fun read and I hope I'm a good fit.
The name I'd like to use is my real name Trevor Johnston. I don't have a blog or website at this point so no worries there.
Thanks again! :D
