I've claimed 5 chapters of The Return of the Native, which is also my first crack at book coordinating :)

I've completed my two chapters of Anne of Avonlea (16 & 30).

Going now to edit my last chapter of Three Men in a Boat (18).

Alright, Canterbury Tales is complete as of now.

I said I couldn't get any recording done this weekend, but I guess I lied. I finished Heart of Darkness! Now it just needs to be edited.

Phew, that's it for me on this jamboree weekend.

I've got my Winnetou parts done right now - just in time :-) ...
Now I am only waiting for the compression to finish and to upload ...
I'll be back ;)

Great, Felix, look forward to receiving it! :)

I've just finished recording my last two chapters of The Spy - not an easy reading, and it took me very long because I'm oh-so tired, but I enjoyed the text, and can't wait to listen to the rest of it! I'll edit them tomorrow...

Now I can hardly keep my eyes open, so I'll be off for now (it's 1.25am here). For the rest of you, enjoy the remainder of your Jamboree!

Oops I'm still here and it's almost 3am... well I didn't complete my own chapters for this jamboree but I had the pleasure to catalogue two new books, which are now available for download (well Spirits in Bondage is still missing OGG and zip files)! :)

It's always something -- during editing I found a bit that I need to re-record, and I'm not prepared to do that until tomorrow night. So just a bit longer.

No worries, Squid, at least you got it recorded!

Well, I managed to fall woefully short of my recording goals, although I did do a lot of cataloging stuff. I did Chapter 20 of Huck Finn and I think that's the only thing that's not marked in the first post thus far.

Maybe next weekend will be my own personal Jamboree, this one was too hectic!

I managed to record a fairy tale, my chapter of Descartes and half the chapter of Darwin (including editing). I didn't manage to complete the Darwin chapter, but it's incredible long. I estimate it will be two hours, I'm thinking about splitting it in two pieces. So I think I did get something done. :D

All the Darwin chapters are incredibly long - between 1 and 2 hours generally.

I got one done myself this weekend for the Jamboree!
Darwin - Chapter 7
The Warden - Chapter 5
The Getting of Wisdom - Chapter 1

Sadly I failed to get The Clerk's Tale done. I was distracted yesterday by the daughter-unit and didn't read anything at all... sigh

What's wrong with your family? Don't they know Librivox is important! :p

Would we mind "Daddy, why is the witch so evil?" questions in recordings?
