Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 20, March 16, 1880 by Various ( - )
Harper's Young People, an illustrated weekly publication for children, includes serialized and one-off short stories, tales from history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 20th issue of the serial, published on March 16, 1880, contains stories of a young sailor's difficult work in the furnace room, travels with a serious friend in foreign lands, hunting hippopotamuses in Africa, a lesson in nature sketching, the conclusion of Biddy O'Dolan's story, and much more. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28410

Thanks JorWat, KevinS, and Lynnet! Glad to have you all aboard. I've filled out the MW and I think we're ready for Reader's Wanted.

KevinS, the section with the two stories you claimed has two additional stories included. Let me know if you want to unclaim, otherwise I've put you down for Section 2. Enjoy!

Jill :)
