The Book of a Thousand Nights and a Night volume 8 by Anonymous ( - ). Translated by Richard Francis Burton (1821 - 1890)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-book-of-the-thousand-nights-and-a-night-volume-8-by-anonymous/

Quote:
This is a collection of stories collected over thousands of years by various authors, translators and scholars. The are an amalgam of mythology and folk tales from the Indian sub-continent, Persia, and Arabia. No original manuscript has ever been found for the collection, but several versions date the collection's genesis to somewhere between AD 800-900. The stories are wound together under the device of a long series of cliff-hangers told by Shahrazad to her husband Shahryar, to prevent him from executing her. Many tales that have become independently famous come from the Book, among them Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and the voyages of Sinbad the Sailor. This collection comes from the eight of sixteen volumes translated by Burton.






    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/3442

I can MC this for you, Kristin. Will be back in a while with the MW.

MW is up - let me know if anything doesn't look right! We'll stick around here to try and snag a DPL.

I have a question; the mw on some of the other volumes was set up like I have section 1, but it is a lot more hassle to set it up like that unless it actually helps, so I made a suggestion in section 2 for how it could be done. Thoughts?

As I'm new to MCing, I checked with my mentor and her ruling is you can set it up however you want. You don't have to copy other volumes (although sometimes it's handy to look to see how they were done, even if you ultimately reject that way). FYI, we both think section2 is a lot clearer 8-)
Edit to add: your summary says it's the second of sixteen volumes, but it's volume 8 :hmm:

Great, that's how I wanted to do it too:)
Obs, I copy pasted:P All the other volumes have the same summary, so I figured it was best to continue the trend. It is fixed:)

EDIT: The mw is up:)
