Bonnie Prince Fetlar: The Story of a Pony and His Friends by Marshall Saunders (1861 - 1947).

A Shetland pony tells the story of his boy owner's search for his mother, whom he believed to be dead. (More detailed summary will be added later)
  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 (links to individual chapters are provided in the MW): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/49459
    .
  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!

Thank you!

You read beautifully! I do have a couple PL notes:

@ 3:37: "My Country 'tis of thee..." The song needs to be sung by yourself, or if you simply want to read it in a speaking voice, that would be fine, too.
@ 15:52: This recording needs 5 seconds of silence at the end of it.


Also, don't forget to post the length of your recording (mm:ss) together with the link.
