Faces in the Fire, and Other Fancies by Frank W. Boreham (1871 - 1959) (pronounced "Bore 'em").

Volunteers outside the USA: Frank Boreham died in 1959. His/Her work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, and Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).

In this collection of essays, Frank Boreham shares with us his musings on how everyday items such as boots and linoleum, or a cozy fire, or even Nothing at all, can enrich our spiritual lives and draw us closer to our Heavenly Father. (Devorah Allen)
  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/42105
    .
  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.

Thanks Beth!

Everything's filled in, and I assigned a few choice morsels to myself. Still hoping for a DPL.

If you want to record, I can PL your sections for you - I just can't commit to DPLing the whole book, as I'm about to launch another Brengle book (also religious) and I'd find it too confusing!

Thanks! I won't record right away, so with luck, we'll have someone by the time I do. But if not, I'll let you know. :wink:

Btw, I'll be watching for that Brengle. I like him, too!

May I have 6 and 8?
OK, this is too intriguing, so you can sign me up for DPL if you like.
Just finishing a couple of projects.

No, he is new to me, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

There is a town in my home state of Oregon with the name of Boring. Paisley and Zigzag are further south.
But, let's not get started on strange U.S. place names. OK, my daughters posed by town sign on a trip through Virginia -- Mouth of Wilson (our surname)

Section 5 is ready in the MW, to start us off.

To be honest, Larry, I was kind of multi-tasking as I edited this one, so I'll be surprised if there's not at least one edit that I missed. Regardless, I like this chapter a lot, and I hope you do, too!

And, I couldn't resist recording this one. As the saying goes, "That'll preach!"
