Sir Gibbie by George MacDonald (1824 - 1905).

Quote:
These are the adventures of Sir Gibbie through the Scotland moors. Not being able to read or speak, Gibbie survives on the streets without a mother and having an alcoholic father. Yet, he wins the hearts of his neighbors and helps others. Children and adults learn through Sir Gibbie self-sacrifice, honesty, and purity. ( Maggie Travers)



This project is now complete and can be found in our catalog here: https://librivox.org/sir-gibbie-by-george-macdonald/


  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/2370

  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.

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

    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!

    • "Chapter [number] of Sir Gibbie. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

    Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!

  9. AFTER recording

Thanks so much, MaryAnn! I'll get all these filled in today :)

EDIT: I've gotten the titles and word counts entered. Can I just say....I love that at the end of the book is a "dictionary" of sorts for us to understand the brogue? :lol:

I'm sorry..for some reason, my computer wasn't able to load the forum last night :/ Mary Ann posted right above yours asking for Chapter 3 already. I do have you assigned now for Chapters 4-6, but feel free to claim more if you like!

I really like George MacDonald, too--although I haven't read through this book yet ;) I really enjoyed his Princess and the Goblin series! I'm also a big fan of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, and they considered MacDonald their mentor.

Happy reading!

Thank you! I wanted the three after Mary Ann's, so 4-6 is what I was going for. Sorry, my math is bad!
