Haworth's by Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849 - 1924).

The story of an inventor's son, who tries to prevent him and a couple other characters from being taken into poverty by the man of the house who is drinking away the money, while trying to inherit their grandmother's money. (Might need a little more work, I'm not too familiar with the book). ( ej400)
    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/files/58183/58183-h/58183-h.htm
    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.

I listened to Gail's Chapter 8, mainly because I was curious how she handles the dialect spellings. But it occurred to me that we might want to coordinate on how to say the title character's name.

Based on the pronunciation given at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haworth
for the town in Yorkshire, I've been assuming that the name is pronounced with a flat a (had-worth) or (almost the same thing) an ow diphthong (how-worth). Gail reads it with an aw sound (haw-worth) or broad a (hah-worth), which is apparently how the town in New Jersey is pronounced.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haworth,_New_Jersey

I'm willing to go whichever way. It just bothers me to think of the poor listeners who might hesitate to recommend the book because they're confused about how to say its name.
