And, the closing section. Need to move on to his book, but may come back to this later if there are still open chapters.

Thanks, Larry!

I imagine this one will take a while to complete, since the author didn't die till 1975 - making it still in copyright for most of the world outside the US. But I knew that would slow it down going in. So, if you have time in the future to read more, that would be great! :D

Hi Leigh,

I just realized you said CHAPTER 4, and I assigned you section 4, as chapter 3 is split in two. Did you want the chapter entitled Art Schools and University College? I have changed your assigned section to that, but if it was a different one that you wanted, let me know! Sorry for the confusion!

Hi

I am still awaiting confirmation that my Test is OK - but would be happy to read a couple of chapters of the GKC biography - unless you have
a preference, I guess the next two in sequence.

Just curious, do you know why the copyright in the U.S. has expired - I see it is on Project Gutenberg and have read of their processes to verify.

But wondered if you knew. Perhaps, just one of those that were not renewed.

Cheers

Hi Dick,

Thank you! I have put you down for sections 2 and 3, which are the Chapter titled "Childhood" and "School Days, Part 1". However, if you wanted different sections, please feel free to let me know and I can switch them!

What name would you like to use for your catalog page? It can be your real name, forum name or a pseudonym, whatever you prefer. We can also link to a personal website or blog.

As for the copyright status, I would assume that this was a non renewal. I haven't looked into it, but usually anything on PG after 1923 that is Public Domain, would be a Rule 6 non-renewal.

Have fun!

Great ... I will start my LibriVox adventure with those chapters ... hoping I get my test on the Listeners and Editors Wanted Forum reviewed soon (You wouldn't happen to be in a position to do that ?)

It is a good way to keep track of what you have signed up for and what you have completed.
