The American Bee Journal. Vol. XVII, No. 12, Mar. 23, 1881 by Various ( - 0).

The American Bee Journal is the “oldest bee paper in America established in 1861 devoted to scientific bee-culture and the production and sale of pure honey. Published every Wednesday, by Thomas G. Newman, Editor and Proprietor” In this volume are short articles and correspondence on a variety of topics from Royal Jelly to the Honey and Beeswax Market. ( Larry Wilson)

  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://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61056
  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.

Here is a little variety for those who enjoy reading this material. Easy, short sections.
There appear to be a half dozen or so random issues on Gutenberg, so some may follow depending on interest.

Sign me up for DPL. When I grow up, I'm going to become a beekeeper.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Hi Larry,

Well I've been hanging back so you wouldn't feel like I was stalking you :wink:, but since no one else has picked this up, I will. MW coming up.

Hi Larry
Would you want the reading of section 10 (Far East) to include the Price Lists which follow it?

I usually do word counts, but the sections here are so short that I didn't, but maybe I should.
And here is proof that posts don't always appear in order. . . .

Anyway, you have Section 1

Hi Larry,

Are we putting this in Short Works or regular Readers Wanted? From your response above, it sounds like Short Works but thought I would check with you before I move the thread.
