The Tale of Jimmy Rabbit by Arthur Scott Bailey (1877 - 1949).
From his Tuck-Me-In series, Arthur Scott Bailey wrote many "Tales" books about animals and birds to be read to children for bed-time stories. This story is about Jimmy Rabbit and his friends (who are focused on in other books) in Pleasant Valley. ( Lynda Marie Neilson)
    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/24628
    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.

      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!

Hi Maria and Lou -

Here are each of your personal reader pages below - if you bookmark these pages you will get a synopsis of:
- all the books you have signed up for
- what sections have been assigned to you (what you have signed up for) and what stage they are in being processed such as:
- being submitted for Proof Listening (PL)
- having notes returned from the PL where items need to be fixed
- when you fix the items and the PL will spot check them
- and then when the reading is PL OK or complete.

Wordwork2 - https://librivox.org/sections/readers/12570
loukendaru - https://librivox.org/sections/readers/12567

If you have any questions please let me know!
