Also, numbers updated in the first post, and a link to the online spreadsheet I'm tracking in, just in case anyone's curious or wants to know if they've been included yet. And let me know if I've missed anything!

Personally, I've recorded and done a rough edit of my first section, but need to give it a good polish yet. :D

Ok, I've found another one to do. I'm going to contribute my first science fiction for LibriVox: Keep Your Shape by Robert Sheckley.

My section for "Common Sense in the Household" has been OKed. I'm going to record one more for this project. I understand that for the purpose of the challenge 1 project=1 success, regardless how many sections one records for it?

Interesting adventure! I've only just seen this post, but I'm interested in expanding my horizons! I generally avoid American non fiction - I'll go have a look for some now!

(I thought about the idea of an economics book - if I have time I might do that too. I've never read economics for LV either!)

chalk up one more for me, Cori. The section on the dissected spider is uploaded :) 7:04 minutes long, actually not that daunting.

I already found my next challenge, and this is for me a real challenge, actually on three levels, as I explained in MaryAnn's WWI project. Instead of writing it all here, you can read my claim and explanations here: viewtopic.php?p=1455954#p1455954

This may take me some time...so don't expect me back too soon LOL

Gosh, Sonia, you are REALLY going for Adventure Gold! Good luck! Glad the spider section didn't turn out so bad, too. :D

Have fun picking, Beth -- I've not looked that that genre recently, so have no idea what kind of thing is ongoing.

Piotr, I'm sorry I missed your completing your Common Sense reading on the first day of the challenge! All correct and up to date now. I'm counting success when people have completed one section, yes -- but we're still tracking sections and total time separately, so any additions to those are welcome, and I think it's fair game to stay within the same book, given that you're onto a new topic with each chapter. :D

Neat story, Devorah ... looking forward to hearing that when it's catalogued. 8-)

I claimed a section in "Marion Harland's Complete Etiquette". I've never read a how-to guide and I've never read anything on etiquette.

Like Kara, I am adventuring into India, Persia, Mesopotamia and Palestine with a few short sections from this project:

I'm done with my war poetry :9: it was a beautiful chapter, but v-e-r-y long. In fact, I checked, and this was the longest section I ever recorded for LV. 56:05 min. :shock: This may be normal for you seasoned big chapter readers, but it was definitely a big deal for me. (one I won't repeat again that quickly :lol: )

I'm happy I read it though, I found so many great poems in there. :)

Now I need a bit of a rest from the challenge. But I will probably find another one before the month is over.

Okayokay, I'll play too.

It's hard to find a genre I haven't read for yet. But unless "Dracula" counts as Ghost/Horrorstory, I think I found my blind spot. :D

Hence my pledge:
I have decided to read one story for Bart's current Ghost and Horror Collection.

(Wish me luck! :shock: )
Cheers,
Ava.
