    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.

Hi Kristine, quick question:

Where would you like us to read the Author's name? ... at the beginning in the Into after the Poem Title, or at the end after reading the poem?

Thanks for asking! Please say the authors name both at the beginning and after the poem. I made corresponding corrections to the first post as well, to make clear that "poem title" in this case includes also the author's name.

Hi, Saralisse and welcome to Librivox!
We strongly encourage all readers to first submit a short 1-minute test to check that all technical details of the recording are correct, before starting on an actual recording. It saves much time and effort for you to get the specs correct from the beginning. Here you can read all about the test: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

Please complete the test and come back here and I'll assign the chapter to you properly. Thanks!
Have fun here!
