Thanks for the offer :) but I think I'd like to try to get different voices for the bigger parts. This book gets a little complicated with characters changing their names and being introduced more than once under different names :shock: so I want to avoid anybody getting mixed up :D. Thank you, though!

4. Where do I find the text? Please read from the Google Docs linked in the Magic Window. Source text (to be PL'ed against): http://gutenberg.org/ebooks/5343
Until the Google Docs are ready, I thought in the meanwhile I'd look at the book text for some of my lines. But I just discovered that when I click on this link in the first post, it doesn't go to Oliver Twist, but to a book called Rainbow Valley. :hmm:

Thanks for the link, SweetPea! I've just looked through my character's chapters. I can see this is going to be a fun part to read!

Hi Rachel,

Pretty epic project here. I feel like the Circus is in town and I'd better grab a seat. I'd like to read Mr. Bumble the Beadle, sections 83 through 93. If you think there's no conflict, as an add-on I'd like Toby Crackit, who would easily have a different sort of voice, besides that he is never in the same scene. That would be sections 259-263.

If you would prefer to dole out one right now, my preference is Bumble.

Thanks for claiming, Ed! I've signed you up for Mr. Bumble. I think I'd rather stick with one part per person for the bigger parts, to avoid confusing people - the book gets a little complicated because characters are referred to under different names and then introduced more than once... ;) Thank you for the offer, though!

Hi,
I just wanted to let you know that Chapter 20 has an Oliver line colored for Nancy, and Nancy's in the MW as in Chapter 29 but she's not in the actual chapter. Thanks :)

Thanks Algy! These are all PL OK, great voices! :)

Thanks! :) If you want to put the next ones in the MW go ahead, it saves me having to do it :lol: . If you want to do some PLing that would be great. I've recorded half of Oliver and just need to upload it, once I decide whether I like his first chapter or whether I should redo it :hmm:
Chapters 13-39 (not counting the chapters she isn't in, of course) are PL OK! Chapter 40 has a stumble @ 2:17 then he goes...by some other amongst us. Great job! :D Thank you!

He's all yours - thank you!

Thanks Maria! :) These are in the MW for PLing.

OK :D Mrs. Corney/Mrs. Bumble is all PL OK! She sounds great! :) I forgot to say, if you think my accent for Nancy sounds too funny I can redo it in my normal voice. :) Thanks!
