Love Stories #1 by Michele Fry ( - 0).
This multi-lingual collection is for any love story in the public domain, preferably less than 60 minutes. Stories longer than 60 minutes may be divided into two parts. You are welcome to contribute up to 3 stories, and there is no need to "sign-up" before recording as long as the work is clearly in the public domain. By "love story" is included of course romance between lovers, and chivalry, and also love of parents, children, family, pets, country, nature, vocation, etc. -- experiences that involve a heart overflowing with passion, pride, emotion and/or wonder. Readers submitting multi-language stories may need to find a qualified proof-listener. After 20 stories are submitted, the collection will be closed unless under 6 hours of stories has accumulated.
Multiple versions are always welcome, so you can record a story that has been recorded before. (If the same stories are submitted twice in the same collection, we will carry the second version over to the next collection). ( ~ Michele Fry)
    1. There is no need to preclaim. Just record and submit a story with the requested information (in red below).
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Once your story is submitted, please be on the lookout for your Proof Listeners notes, which if changes are required must be attended to for your story to be included in the catalog.[/color]

      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.[/b]

      Level of prooflistening requested: standard
      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening!

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Michele. I will move this to Readers Wanted now if you wish. Or wait another day if that is your preference.

I think we're good to go. My only concern is finding someone to PL sections in a foreign language. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. If you see anything I need to do please let me know.

'About Love' by Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)
PL Notes About Love
That is a darned sad story about unrequited love . . . . you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Pure Chekhov, and one I hadn't heard before? Nice, and thank you. Only thing I noticed was:

7:43 We were exhausted, I hear something like wrrgausted
