Natalie Page by Katharine Haviland-Taylor (1891 - 1941).

Natalie Page is coming to visit her aunt and uncle in New York. Of course they want her around, but every social engagement is more important, even when she is ill. So Natalie starts to focus on small mysteries like her stolen bracelet, and observe the people around her. She writes a lot about their norms, habits and deeds. Would she be able to thrive during her stay or would she always remain in the shadow of her social light aunt and cousins? Would she be able to find herself? (Stav Nisser.)
    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!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/59902
    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.

Hi Stav,

I'll MC this project for you. It's been a while since we worked together so please remind me what you currently do or do not need my help with updating in the MW.

That's it, the window is set. I used page numbers until the last chapter. But there was no page number at the end of the book so I used wordcounting.

Thanks a lot. I hope you enjoyed these. Would you like to read more chapters? In addition, I have a request: please write to me the chapter, and the duration. For example:
chapter one:
14:45.
Not as you wrote. I am blind and I cannot enter the chapters with the correct durations to the mw this way.
